Indiana based artists, Kris and Angela Gebhardt are off on another adventure in the Professional Contemporary Art World...Artexpo New York (neighbor to the Architectural Digest Home Design Show), March 21 through 24, 2013 at Pier 92 in New York City/ http://www.artexponewyork.com. For over thirty-five years, Artexpo has been changing the way people buy and sell art. Each year thousands of art industry insiders flock to Artexpo New York in search of the art and artists that will shape trends in galleries worldwide. Hosting more than 15,000 avid art enthusiasts annually, it is the largest international gathering of qualified trade buyers-including gallery owners and managers, art dealers, interior designers, architects, corporate art buyers and art & framing retailers. Participating artists must pass a stringent art jurying process, insuring only the highest quality work.
The Gebhardt's have recently returned from a very successful Art Expo Miami show during the international Art Basil Miami. As the international Art world descended on Miami during this year's Art Basil Miami, Kris and Angela Gebhardt, husband and wife artists were in the center of the action at the Miami Art Expo + Solo show in the trendy and edgy Wynwood Arts District. The energy and excitement surrounding one of the worlds most distinguished Art experiences was perfect for the " artistic approach" of these 2 contemporary artists. The couples selected art included 16 pieces, paintings, photographs and metal sculptures; each with the artists dark energy, sizzle and healthy sex appeal style.
When entrepreneur Angela Gebhardt sold her successful Indianapolis hair design business and product line, she would have never guessed her next career would become the sparsely clad muse and inspiration for hundreds of art pieces (by husband Kris Gebhardt) that have been showcased internationally and that she would be creating art that would be showcased at such a prestigious event as Art Expo Miami + Solo and now Artexpo New York. Her contemporary work is focused on abstract, sketch and figure paintings that are monumental in scope and scale with an emphasis on bold and surreal messages woven within each piece.
