10 Twenty 10 at Claire Oliver in New York. Now showing through June 16, 2012
New York! Be sure to get your art on this weekend and stop by Claire Oliver in Chelsea to celebrate the historic 10 year anniversary of the gallery in New York and their 20th year in business! Wow! What an accomplishment! They’ve pulled out the big guns for this exhibit and are showcasing the work of 10 artists who represent the artistic vision of the gallery. The impressive list of artists in the exhibition is Norbert Brunner, Beth Cavener Stichter, Andy Denzler, Andrew Erdos, Herb Jackson, Stephanie Lempert, Jesse McCloskey, Jennifer Poon, Bernardi Roig and Judith Schaechter.
On a personal note, I’ve had so many great experiences at Claire Oliver and I’ve been exposed to a lot of life changing art and I’ve met so many great artists inside their gallery. In addition, it’s always a delight to speak with gallery owners Claire and Ian and discuss art and our ‘past lives’ in California. For these memories you cannot put a price on, I am truly thankful and I wish them even more success in the next chapter of their gallery. The photos you see are merely a tiny sample of the exhibit, so don’t delay and head over to the gallery to toast their first 10 years in New York and see some really great art while you are at it!

"Smiling Broadly" by Norbert Brunner. Now showing at Claire Oliver in New York through March 24, 2012
Like me, if you’ve been looking forward to seeing a full length exhibit by Austrian artist Norbert Brunner, the wait is over. “Smiling Broadly” by Brunner is now showing at Claire Oliver in New York. Combining LED lights, 3 layers of Plexiglass and text made out of Swarovski crystals, each work by Norbert Brunner will make you question the interpretation of the traditional definition of a portrait. From a photograph, we only know about the moment in question, but what transpires before and after it are mysteries. When you look at Norbert Brunner’s works, you are confronted with a question or statement that will uplift you, while at the same time, a pair of eyes is seemingly waiting for your reaction.
I spoke with Norbert Brunner at the opening night reception and it was a great experience talking to him about the positive messages in his art. Some of the phrases you’ll see on his gorgeous works of art include “Recognize the Potential,” “Don’t Wait, Start Now,” “Visualize the Extraordinary” and “Anticipate Greatness.” These inspirational phrases and self-fulfilling prophecies make the viewer walk away from the gallery with the title of the exhibit fresh on their faces – smiling broadly!
Anything is Possible by Norbert Brunner
“Smiling Broadly” by Norbert Brunner is showing at Claire Oliver (located at 513 West 26th Street in Manhattan) through March 24, 2012. Don’t miss it!
