Opening on Thursday June 9th and until June 12th, Art takes Manhattan welcomes the city’s art lovers in its storefront gallery of 10th Avenue between 26th and 27th Streets, with their most delicately refreshing ensemble of contemporary art to date.
The “Summer Show” will be sluiced in stylized and oversized sculpture, from the blue Tsunami VIII of Cornelia Kavanagh, to Jan Abt’s feminine bronzes, to the massive undulant installation of Yun-Woo Choi.
The two dimensional art comprises a collection of 30 artworks that represent a stylistic progression from minimalism to elemental geometric forms, prospective geometry, fluid figurative representation, aesthetic realism, naturalism, contemporary impressionism, and abstract expressionism; in an overall theme of free time and Summer blue skies.
Bringing together 20 established artists of depth and breadth in their fields has required the combined curatorial efforts of Kate Shin, owner and director of the Waterfall Mansion & Gallery in the Upper East Side; Neil Powell, board member of the MoCA Beijing and Pro Vice-Chancellor at Norwich University of the Arts; Jaime Martinez, publisher of ArteFuse Magazine and established New York based artist; and Manuel Rodríguez, director at Art takes Manhattan.
Collectors attending the opening will have the opportunity of being introduced to the exhibition by artists such as Torgesen Murdock who presents for the first time in New York “The Dolomites” Grand Prize Winner of the International Artist Magazine; Jacob Kulin will also find time from his current installation of a grand sculpture commissioned by Boston Parks and Recreation Department for the Symphony Park (just after inaugurating his most celebrated piece at the Boston Logan International Airport), to delight us with his insight and passion for the unique threefold Arched Cedar that presides the gallery’s front; or Alejandra López-Zaballa that after receiving a LensCulture Award and exhibiting in the latest PhotoEspaña has decided to come by and let us enjoy her photographic sensibility.
