Asterisk Goes Affordable

It's spring time, and that means the Affordable Art Fair is back in NYC.  Now that Armory week has passed we can spend time looking at artworks that we one day could actually own.  You'll find many such works from Asterisk Projects artists at booth 1.49. We have a great inventory of new works to share.  For more information about visiting the fair, see the AAF website.  We hope you all can make it!


What a week in Miami!

There are art fairs all over the world now...but no other city does it quite like Miami.  With all the fairs, shows, museums, performances, and parties going on during Art Basel week it's just impossible to see it all.  Despite the need to pick and choose, over 40,000 found the time to visit Scope this week on Miami Beach.  We'd like to extend a heart-felt thanks to all those who visited the Asterisk Projects booth and helped to make it such a successful week.  Finding new homes for so many artworks was the perfect way to end a great year!

Matt Neuman Featured in This Months Issue of Arte Al Limite

Arte Al Límite is an international arts publication out of Santiago, Chile.  The publication, edited in Chile, is distributed nationally and internationally, and it includes interviews and articles about leading artists, presented with a cutting edge design. Its contents are developed by journalists, renowned art critics and specialized writers, addressing works and relevant trends in the current scene.



Two Chances in September to Visit Asterisk

First...

Matt Neuman

A solo exhibit at the Houston Fine Art Fair, Sept 18- 21

Continuing to use the circle as a compositional building block, Neuman presents a brand new group of works on paper that challenge the conventional understanding of what is possible in print making.  In these large-scale woodcut prints, Neuman uses geometry as a delivery vehicle for color to provide a visual experience at the intersection of Cartesian and non-Euclidian space. The resulting works challenge viewers’ assumptions about the nature of space and lead them to examine the role that abstraction plays in providing a visual analogue to more fundamental spatial realities.

 

Second...

Asterisk is back in NYC for the fall edition of the Affordable Art Fair! 

We're excited to present a couple of new artists making their Asterisk Projects debuts.  Catherine Kernan is a talented printmaker out of Boston whose unorthodox woodcut process stacks layers of translucent, natural forms that coalesce in a very unique and painterly manner.  Jonathan Pozniak will be showing photographs from the Antarctic.  In this body of work he approaches icebergs and other arctic forms much like a portrait photographer, creating dramatic imagery that adds a powerful sense of mood to the striking natural beauty.  Come see these artists along side Asterisk staples later this month.

Come and visit us September 25-29 at "The Tunnel", 269 11th Ave, NY, NY
Visit the AAF website for more visitor information.

Want to come for free?  All you have to do is say so!  Send us an email letting us know you'd like to attend and we will email you back with a ticket (available on a first come first serve basis).

We had a great week at Scope NY!

Armory week always brings great energy to NYC as mobs of art lovers scurry to fit all the fairs, openings, and events into their busy schedules.  We definitely felt the excitement in the Scope pavilion.  From the opening night party through closing on Sunday evening, the galleries at Scope drew over 10,000 visitors.  If you didn't get to see the Asterisk Project booth in person check out some of the photos.  In our completely non-bias opinion we had some of the best art works in the entire house.  All of our artists were very well received drawing lots of attention from buyers and admirers alike. 

You'll have another chance to visit us in NYC from April 2-6 when we pop up at the Affordable Art Fair.  More on that later.
