Displaying art doesn’t have to be frustrating; in fact, it should be displayed, well, artistically. In the gallery, we have stacked two original signed and numbered lithographs by Salvador Dali over an antique Chippendale solid mahogany bookcase. The bookcase features fretwork on the doors as well as ball-and-claw feet. In the bookcase, we have purposefully left room so that the contents provide beauty for the eye and lessons for the brain. Atop the bookcase we have arranged a pair of black-and-gold iron lamps (the new touch we always seek) with a pair of antique French Empire urns.
The resulting look is calming, symmetrical, and eclectic. The Dali prints were purchased last year during the gallery’s annual international fine arts show and sale; curator Walter Edelman will return this fall with more amazing art from around the world as well as from the estates of Dali, Pablo Picasso, and Marc Chagall. Please join us on Oct. 2 and 3 for this show that will delight the eyes.
We will tell you more about the show, the curator, and the artists in the coming days.
