ART VITAM: NEW YORK IN JUNE
MIAMI GALLERY BRINGS FRESH FRENCH SUNSHINE TO THE AFFORDABLE ART FAIR IN NYC


Art Vitam shifts venues from Miami’s palm trees to New York City’ skyscrapers this June, taking part in the one of the hottest art fairs on the planet: The Affordable Art Fair (June 15 - 18). Arnaud and Sophie Blachet, both French, will exhibit new works by five of their emerging Internationally-based gallery artists who have established themselves in both the US and Europe over the last half dozen years: Michael Baigneaux, Mathilde Denis, Matthew Rose, Claire Jeanine Satin, and Christina Stahr. The 2006 edition of the AAF NYC is Art Vitam’s first foray into the well-respected international fair.

The Blachets, who launched Gallery Art Vitam in Miami’s Wynwood Art District in 2002, quickly set about exhibiting a range of young artists working in collage, new photography, book works, and contemporary drawing in the go-go Miami/South Beach area. They are pleased to present artists they feel draw out ideas from across continents and cultures.
“We’ve organized approximately eight exhibitions per year, most of them group shows that show tendencies in contemporary art in both the US and Europe,” said Sophie Blachet. “Most of our artists have come from France, Italy, Belgium, the UK and the US.”
“For the last four years, we’ve worked consistently with a dozen artists – Michael Baigneaux, Maxime Dautresme, Mathilde Denis, Frédéric Lemoine, Alfredo Lopez, Lorent Matagne, Jacques Pzrybylka, Matthew Rose, Claire Jeanine Satin, Sylvie Schmitt, Henri Touitou & Christina Stahr – emerging mid-career artists who, in their own way have reinvented a traditional medium – collage, drawing, painting, photograhy and exploited the sense and sensibility of the art object, and its expectations, to push forward word, image and presentation,” said Arnaud Blachet.

“Art Vitam is the only Florida gallery chosen to participate in the AAF NYC,” added Sophie Blachet, and so we’re happy to be representing Florida in NYC this June. New York is clearly the center of the contemporary art world, a universe of art and collectors that are both seasoned and, savvy – even if they are young collectors. Several of our artists, notably Claire Satin and Matthew Rose, have established themselves in the museum circuit with permanent installations, and have been acquired as part of permanent collections.”


Gallery Art Vitam invites the New York City public and friends of the gallery to join in a great celebration this June.
