Luigi Sansores (Artist Spotlight)

Art-Chelsea recently trekked on out to Bushwick to visit the studio of Luigi Sansores, an abstract artist who moved to New York from Chicago a few months ago.  What's great about Luigi is his pure, genuine love of painting.  That love is part of the reason he and his husband (Garrett, amazing chef and creator of the blog Brooklyn Living) moved here - the unmatched size of New York's artistic community was practically magnetic.  Get to know more about Luigi and enjoy browsing his work!

Art Live 2011 @ CATM Chelsea (Exclusive Preview)

Art-Chelsea is positively ecstatic to share with you an exclusive look at Art Live 2011.  This blog is currently the only place you will find three artworks to be included in this year's Art Live exhibition, an annual show which surveys the pulse of the artistic community. The hype behind Art Live is always well warranted, as it is one of the only shows in Chelsea which accurately conveys the global consciousness of artists at present time (highly recommended that you read the press release below). 

Be sure to not miss the opening reception (Thursday, September 1, 6-8pm), presented by CATM Chelsea and Fund Art Now. CATM (corner of 22nd St & 10th Ave) by far has the best gallery receptions in NYC.
