WHAT'S NEW AT ARTEXPO
Famous Hollywood Sign Coming to New York!
The Original Hollywood Sign, one of the most recognized icons in Americana
is coming to Artexpo New York. Artist Bill Mack purchased the original
sign last year and is using the material from it to create fine art memorabilia
sculptures and paintings as an homage to classic Hollywood. On Thursday,
March 1st, Bill Mack will unveil the first in the series, The Letter H
featuring images of Marilyn Monroe, James Dean and more. This new collection
is being called the hottest thing for 2007 in entertainment art. A classic
Hollywood actor will be on hand to assist with the unveiling.
Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Summer of Love (1967) as SPS Limelight
Agency debuts never before seen work by rock legend Jimmy Hendrix. Limited-editions
of the 20-piece collection, including drawings, sketches and painting will
be available for purchase at the show.
Witness the future of fine art printing with Toccare, a fresh print medium
that provides a new reflective light source that enhances visual impact.
The result is an original print that combines texture, relief, luminosity,
dimension, and depth that makes artwork look like it is made of glass.
Exhibitors including Studio Fine Art with be showcasing tocarre prints
at the show.
Like the fashion industry, the art world
presents new trends every year. This year, the trend is the rise of Digital
Art. Check out exhibitors like
Jonathan Grant who take images to new heights with artist-enhanced photography.
Jonathan’s work is available in both traditional format and Toccare.
Over 400 Looney Tunes-based pieces will
be available at Artexpo New York 2007, including Eden Gallery’s
20-new sculptures from clever 3-D Animation Sculptor David Kracov, as
well as two new iconic bronze sculptures
of Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner by Lawrence Noble in celebration of the
30th Anniversary of Linda Jones Enterprises.
With the passing this year of animation legends Joseph Barbera and Iwao
Takamoto, Ruth Clampett, president of Clampett Studio, felt it appropriate
to pay homage to a company that was ahead of its time in the animation
industry and popular culture at Artexpo New York. This tribute will feature
another animation legend, Bob Singer, as a special guest appearing on Saturday,
March 3rd (Time: TBA) in the Clampett Studio booth.
