Lesley Heller presents a solo exhibition of recent small-scale multi-media collages by Amanda C. Mathis in the Project Space.

Predominantly known for her large-scale site specific installations which often incorporate discarded elements from DIY renovations, Mathis’ small-scale collages bring these larger conversations on domestic space into a more intimate and personal scale. Her works are explorations on the everyday architecture of dwellings and the overlapping yet disjointed elements of how we recollect and piece together the places we pass on a daily basis.

OPENING: Friday, November 30, 6-9 PM
ON VIEW: Saturdays and Sundays 1 PM - 6 PM
November 30 – December 16, 2018

Chosen from an open call that attracted a diverse range of artists, Tiger Strikes Asteroid New York is pleased to present an exhibition launching our 2019 Flat File program featuring 38 artists representing an array of approaches towards flat media: drawing, collage, printmaking, and photography. In many cases the selected works are emblematic of an artist’s core practice, while for some this work represents a departure from a larger body of work. The small-scale format presented in our program presents an elastic site for play and exploration.
 

During this exhibition, and throughout the year visitors are welcome to browse and acquire artworks from the flat file. Individual pieces from the program will be selectively highlighted throughout the year. All works can be viewed on our website and a catalog highlighting all artists in the 2019 program is available for purchase on our website and through MagCloud.
 

The 2019 Flat File features works by: Liz Ainslie, Kumasi J. Barnett, Janine Biunno, Theresa Bloise, Kat Chamberlin, Yen Yen Chou, Jonathan Cowan, Molly Dilworth, Ian Etter, Daniel Goodwin, Jennifer Grimyser, Christine Han, Leslie Hirst, Will Hutnick, Amanda Konishi, Lauren McGill, Nick Naber, Jenene Nagy, Naomi Nakazato, Zahra Nazari, Justin Liam O'Brien, Anna Ortiz, Alison Owen, Kent Rhodebeck, Anna Riley, Leslie Roberts, Kate Russo, Ryan Russo, Emilie Selden, Becca Shmuluvitz, Juna Skenderi, Leah Smith, Kalina Winters, Mie Yim, Seldon Yuan, Stella Zhong, Deborah Zlotsky, and Mark Zubrovich.

COLLECT offers the public a chance to purchase affordable artworks and pay for them in comfortable installments by Venmo or PayPal. We believe that collecting works of art should not be a privilege reserved for the select few, and that artworks should be sold to those who will cherish and enjoy them. These are the ideas behind COLLECT - come support your local artist community and walk out a collector!

Soloway is entirely self-funded and has served the local art community for more than 7 years during which it has hosted over 53 exhibitions. In celebration of this rich history and with an eye towards sustaining future programming we present COLLECT. Proceeds will offset our operating costs and allow us to continue to champion artists for many seasons to come.

Collecting from Art Fairs: What to Expect

Fran Holstrom

Part I :  Why You Should Go + What to Expect

Art Fairs provide us with an exhaustive selection of what's hot in the international art scene. Or at least, what is for sale. This gives new collectors the opportunity to meet face-to-face with gallerists (also called dealers) and learn about the work on display. The gallery scene can be intimidating, so if you are looking to get your feet wet & learn about contemporary art, this is a great place to start. If you are serious about collecting, you already know that much of the most desirable work is claimed at VIP Previews.

If this is your first time venturing to art fairs, there is a great explanation in Forbes regarding tickets, protocol and what to wear. You will have to wait until next December for Art Basel Miami Beach, but scroll down to the 7 ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR ATTENDING AN ART FAIR.  

Collectors flock from all over the globe to attend the fairs, and competition is stiff. In fact, some galleries won't sell to a new collector unless they are introduced by someone they trust. This makes sense if you consider that artwork represents the culture of our time! Assuming it grows in value as a cultural object, both the artist and dealer hope that it will be shown in museums, and may call on you (or your children) decades from now to loan the art for serious exhibitions. Dealers have the goal of optimizing the return on investment for all. Respect that. 

Building a relationship with an artist or dealer takes time--money alone may not be enough to win the prize. The international artworld takes itself very seriously. These are not just pretty pictures. Think of the role of a collector as the caretaker of the artwork. No matter how you approach collecting, you have to gain the trust of those selling to you. 

Now that you know the basics, how do you choose your fairs? You probably can't (or don't want to) see them all. We suggest a few tactics in the next article, click here.
