Piermarq is excited to announce its participation at Art Palm Beach in January 2016, where the gallery will be presenting large-scale, museum-quality paintings by the most famous aboriginal artists of our time. Some of the well-known artists that Piermarq will be presenting in Florida are Tommy Watson, Naata Nungurrayi and George Tjungurrayi.
Not only does Piermarq have one of the largest central booths at the fair and will the directors of Piermarq talk during the fair’s lecture series, there will also be a 5-meter painting by Tommy Watson installed at the entrance of the show, as the organisation chose Aboriginal Art as one of their main pitch points.
Palm Beach and Aboriginal Art have a connection as the very prominent Palm Beach collector, John Kluge, once the wealthiest man in America, was an avid collector of Aboriginal Art. He founded one of the most important news corporations which he later sold and eventually became Fox News. Kluge passed away in 2010 but left a lasting legacy donating part of his $6.5 billion wealth of which US$400m in his estate to Columbia University and establishing an Aboriginal Center for the arts at the University of Virginia.
Art Palm Beach is internationally renowned as the premiere mid-winter contemporary art fair on Florida’s Gold Coast by both art critics and enthusiasts.
