Pop-up shop and benefit sale at the Katonah Museum
For this holiday season, The Print Sale, a pop-up shop and benefit sale, has arrived at the Katonah Museum of Art’s Project Gallery. Curated by Robin Simon, a fine art consultant, appraiser, and owner of Robin Simon Fine Art in Bedford, the selection includes contemporary prints and photographs by high-profile artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Kiki Smith, and Stanley Whitney alongside mid-career and emerging artists such as Chris Martin and Derrick Adams. An added bonus is that every sale helps to support the Museum’s exhibition and education programs.
Local artists of the Katonah Museum Artist’s Association (KMAA) are also highlighted in the sale, with prints and photographs for sale in flip files. It’s a great way to find a unique gift that will stay with the recipient over time. In describing the sale, Simon says “the goal was to provide a variety of visual stimuli in a variety of price points.”
As for advice for anyone looking to gift a piece of art, “unless you know their taste very intimately, visiting and looking at the show together is an awesome experience and the best way to decide.”
The Print Sale will be open at the Katonah Museum of Art through January 24, 2016. The sale is open to all, but while you are there, we suggest you check out the Museum’s current environment-themed exhibition in the main galleries, SupraEnvironmental. katonahmuseum.org
