Art Miami Exhibitor Highlight: Leslie Feely
Director at Leslie Feely
33 E. 68th Street, New York, NY 10065
What is the gallery's focus at this year's fair?
This year we will be presenting a dynamic selection of post war and contemporary art. Including works by Richard Diebenkorn, Jules Olitski, Friedel Dzubas and Kenneth Noland. The presentation will include highlights from each artist’s career; including Diebenkorn’s Ocean Park series, Olitski’s early sprays, and Noland’s sixties stripe paintings.
Are there specific artists or works that collectors should pay attention to at your booth?
Featured in our booth are paintings by Kikuo Saito a Japanese painter who sadly passed away just last year. During the final years of his life Saito created the most spectacular paintings of his career. Currently we represent the Estate of the Artist and are pleased to present these cherished late works.
What trends have you noticed in the art market over the past few years?
In the last few years I have seen collectors revisit overlooked / undervalued talents. Most recently I have seen a real increase in the market of Friedel Dzubas. These beautiful paintings previously traded for low figures comparatively to his peers. Now in just a few years the artist’s market is strong and growing. We will be showing a selection of paintings by Friedel Dzubas - this would be a great opportunity for collectors to acquire works by this artist.
What are some of your favorite aspects of being a part of Art Miami?
Art Miami is Miami’s original fair. It stays true to its roots and is an excellent place for experienced and new collectors alike to find top quality works. It is not only a chance for us to be with our fellow galleries from New York – but also meet new galleries from around the world.
Please give our readers a few tips for making the most of attending art fairs based on your experience.
There is a lot to see, so it’s good to pace yourself. I recommend coming to ArtMiami more than once - often the VIP opening can be quite busy and hard to get a full sense of the works. To avoid the crowd, I recommend coming early when the doors open. We look forward to meeting you at our booth this year!
