ARC Select Exhibition at Rehs Gallery. ARTE FUSE

Long before Chelsea, Soho, and the Lower East Side, 57th Street in midtown Manhattan, was where the upscale art galleries could be found, and some of those still exist today. One of these is a family-owned space known as Rehs Contemporary Galleries between Madison and Fifth Avenues currently presenting a diverse group exhibition in conjunction with the Art Renewal Center (ARC). The show features several oil and acrylic paintings from six different artists who were selected as this year’s winners at ARC Annual Salon. The chosen candidates Philippe Attie, Richard Hall, Joseph McGurl, Walter Rane, Duffy Sheridan, and Kari Tirrell are all of different generations but all of them integrate character, meaning, and feeling into their work.

Phillippe Attie has been painting since he was 11 years old, and his paintings have a dreamlike, ethereal quality to them as he strives to capture aspects of the human soul through his subjects. In one painting titled Voyage, he portrays a young woman asleep with her surrounding environment of spirals, feathers, and colorful swirls represent her being transported into another world in her dreams. Attie represents himself as a small child with works like Lullaby depicting a baby boy sleeping on some blankets with his small arm outstretched, and Sound of Innocence depicting a young boy wearing shorts playing music on his horn, very similar to that of baby angels playing heavenly melodies with their instruments… 



Rehs Contemporary is proud to work side by side with the Art Renewal Center as we present ARC Select – a group exhibition featuring the works of six hand-picked artists from ARC’s annual Salon. The winners of this year’s ARC Select award are: Philippe Attie, Richard Hall, Joseph McGurl, Walter Rane, Duffy Sheridan and Kari Tirrell.
