ArtPalmBeach Celebrates 15th Anniversary January 2012

Florida

Palm Beach, FL - October 7, 2011- ArtPalmBeach celebrates its 15th Anniversary at the Palm Beach County Convention Center from January 20th-23rd, 2012 with a Preview evening January 19th. ArtPalmBeach is considered one of the most influential contemporary art fairs on Florida's Gold Coast by both critics and art enthusiasts since its opening in 1997. In honor of the Anniversary celebration, the fair will debut the most extensive program in its history by encompassing premiere events, special exhibitions, topical lectures, special museum tours, site specific art installations, art performances and exclusive VIP programs.

ArtPalmBeach 2012 welcomes back many returning exhibitors as well as introducing newcomers to the Palm Beach art scene. The fair is comprised of over seventy international galleries presenting works of all forms of contemporary art including painting, sculpture, photography, design, fine art glass, video and installations from modern art to new cutting-edge artists.

The fair will honor the lifetime accomplishments of Japanese sculptor Jun Kaneko and will feature a one-man exhibition of major works sponsored by Elaine Baker Gallery (Palm Beach, FL).

Originally a painting student, Kaneko discovered a passion for sculpture upon his arrival to California in the early 1960's, a time now defined as the Contemporary Ceramics Movement in America. Kaneko has taught at the nation's leading art schools including Scripps College and the Rhode Island School of Design. Kaneko's bronze and glass sculpture and two-dimensional works appear in numerous international exhibitions and as well as over 50 museum collections around the world. He has been honored with national, state and organization fellowships and an honorary doctorate from the Royal College of Art in London. He has realized almost 30 public art commissions and recently designed the set and costumes for a new production of Puccini's Madame Butterfly.

  • Ernest Trova 1927-2009 Reverse Flowerman 1972 Stainless Steel 83 x 17 x 30 in. Ed. of 6   Renowned sculptor Ernest Trova began his artistic career as many others of his time did, first with cubist painting, then collage, finally graduating to sculpture. Unlike those of his generation however, Trova’s career began in St Louis, outside of the rapidly growing New York City art world. In St Louis, Trova first embarked on the Falling Man series, which was to become the major theme of his work. This series juxtaposing man’s iconic perfection and imperfection, creates a contrasting dialogue between Trova’s vulnerable human forms, and the durable materials of which they are made. These forms discuss man’s literal vs. figurative success and failure, while commenting on his development in the technological age.

  • Boaz Vaadia B. 1951 The Family 2008 Bronze, blusestone and boulder 74 x 115 x 115 in. Ed. of 5   Israel-born artist Boaz Vaadia has enjoyed much acclaim since the 1980’s. His style has fully evolved into the recognizable forms of figurative sculpture created from layers of chiseled stone. His work reflects the eternal relationship between man and nature and encompasses a universal appeal. Vaadia’s stone, chiseled and stacked, arrowhead-like figures have a natural and mysterious quality of prehistoric artworks. This new body of work focuses on bust-style-portraiture using the same stylistic principles, processes and materials as his previous work. Vaadia’s sculptures are included in permanent collections of museums around the world including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Jewish Museum in New York, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Tel-Aviv Museum.
