ADAA The Art Show: Highlights and Favorites

The Art Dealer’s Association of America’s The Art Show brings together the best of museum quality art and galleries to the Park Avenue Armory.

A considerably small fair, The Art Show invites blue chip galleries to present solo and two artists exhibitions or strategically curated booths.

The interior of the fair was quite somber with a pallet of dark deep gray walls and carpeting, the quiet lull of the space was filled by some nice booths hosting the much expected Matisse, Picasso, and American photography.

The most beautifully curated presentation titled Wishing and Praying was at CRG.

A brilliant and compelling presentation of religious iconography, like these works by Arnulf Rainer and Robert Buck.

Peter Blum presented a solo show of preliminary works on paper by David Reed.  Known for his large abstract works, these gorgeous colour and form studies elaborate on the extensive building, pallet testing, and sketching invested in each painting.

Beautiful sculptural pieces at Sperone Westwater and Rachel Whiteread coloured resin works at Luhring Augustine.

Maxwell Davidson presented a humouristic thematic exhibition titled The Objectification of Pop, with works from Tom Wesselmen and the typical 1960s pop artists, along side this work by Leo Castelli, and reconstructed tapedeck by Kiel Johnson.

Exquisitly delicate works on paper David Opdyke at Ronald Feldman, and Jaume Plensa at Galerie Lelong.

Of course large text based works that we’ve seen as a predominant theme through all this season’s fairs, at Cheim&Read and Yazid Oulab at CRG.

Fun bright paintings at Regen Projects, and the miniature sculptures of everyday objects by Tom Friedman at James Cohan.
