Art & Living: Emerging Interiors at LEPERE

If your in NYC this week, come by and see me at the exhibition opening!

Art & Living: Emerging Interiors 
May 13th through July 5th 

@ LEPERE showroom,
20 West 22nd Street, Suite 1105, New York, NY 

Opening reception on May 13th from 7 - 9 PM

This spring, fine art and interior design will intersect in New York's famed Chelsea neighborhood, as Cheeky Living, LEPERE and Raandesk® Gallery of Art present Art & Living: Emerging Interiors.  The show, which will open Thursday, May 13th at the LEPERE showroom, is a unique collaboration between interior designer (Cheeky Living), showroom (LEPERE) and art gallery (Raandesk® Gallery of Art), and will pair the work of emerging international artists with sleek, modern, European furnishings.

Curated by interior designer and Cheeky Living founder, Karen Chien, Art & Living: Emerging Interiors will showcase furnishings from European design houses including: ABR (Spain), Artelano (France), EMU Re, (Spain) Limited Edition (Belgium), Parri (Italy) and ABR (Spain) alongside a selection of painting, sculpture, photography and mixed media works.

"An arresting work of art plays a central role in defining the mood and tenor of an interior," comments Karen Chien of Cheeky Living.  "The show illustrates how to incorporate fine art alongside sophisticated, contemporary design."

Raandesk® Gallery of Art, owner Jessica L. Porter selected seven artists that would complement the LEPERE aesthetic including: Juan Astica (Buenos Aires), Andrew Maglathlin (Massachusetts), Anne Marchand (Washington D.C.), Teresa Pereda (Buenos Aires), Matej Sitar (Slovenia), Laura Viñas (Buenos Aires) and Roy Wiemann (New York City).

Art & Living: Emerging Interiors will be on view from May 13th through July 5th at LEPERE showroom, located at 20 West 22nd Street, Suite 1105, New York, NY with an opening reception on May 13th from 7 - 9 PM.
