International art and design fair, Spring Masters New York, closes today at the historic Park Avenue Armory, and with 61 U.S. and European exhibitors, it had exceptional, high-quality works on view. For the occasion, architect Rafael Viñoly designed a colorful hexagonal booth layout, where exhibitors had their own little slice of shared space, and privacy too.
Since 2011, diversity in periods and styles is what this art show has been known for, and as work ranging from watercolor paintings to Korean sculptures swept through this year’s space, directors Michael Plummer and Jeff Rabin welcomed all attention to detail and design.
Highlights in this year’s innovative show were: Old Master works by Richard L. Feigen & Co. and Otto Naumann Ltd; contemporary designs by Todd Merrill Studio; watercolor paintings by Debra Force Fine Art, Inc.’s Edward Hopper; Mullany’s 16th century Flemish tapestry; Osborne Samuel Gallery’s work from Kwang Young Chun and Tony Cragg; Michael Goedhuis’ Chinese ink art; Salon 94’s solo installations by Kueng Caputo; Coll & Cortés’ sculptures by José de Mora and Pedro de Mena; Armand Bartos Fine Art’s 20th century art; Lost City Arts’ display of 70 ceramic forms by Fausto Salvi, and Hammer Galleries’ impressionist and modern works by Edgar Degas, Fernand Léger, Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, and Claude Monet.
In relation to the Spring Masters’ overall theme “Juxtapositions—Collecting Across Centuries,” New York-based interior designer Jamie Drake presented his carefully curated booth to showcase artwork from many of the fair’s other exhibitors. “Selecting from the diverse offerings of Spring Master New York is a pleasure. My urbane interiors always employ an array of cultures, periods, textures, and forms to create spaces that delight the eye and pique the mind,” Drake said.
