NEW YORK I MeetAT James Cohan

Date(s): October 4, 2017

Time: 6:30 PM  EST - 8:00 PM  EST

James Cohan, 533 W 26th St, New York, NY 10001


Members and guests

Join ArtTable for informal networking and refreshments at James Cohan. On view will be A Line Can Go Anywhere, organized by Jenelle Porter. 

A Line Can Go Anywhere surveys the use of fiber as the primary material in the work of seven Bay Area artists. Practitioners of what has historically been called fiber art, all of the artists use linear pliable elements such as thread, yarn, string, monofilament, and rope. While not a movement in the conventional sense, Bay Area artists working with linear pliable elements were and continue to be radical makers working among more celebrated movements such as Bay Area Figurative Painting, Funk, and Pop. Including works made between the 1950s and the present, A Line Can Go Anywhere begins with two artists whose works serve as a primer for a history of art making in Northern California. Trude Guermonprez and Ed Rossbach were influential artists and teachers whose work, though too little known today, contributed to a categorical transformation of art and craft. A Line Can Go Anywhere connects these two key figures to works by Josh Faught, Terri Friedman, Alexandra Jacopetti Hart, Ruth Laskey, and Kay Sekimachi.

Join ArtTable for an intimate discussion with the Honorable Beatrice Welters and Mr. Anthony Welters, collectors. Moderated by Jessica Stafford Davis.

We have learned much more about history through the genius of these artists' works while being privileged to glimpse their personal stories. In the end, Tony and I have discovered much about ourselves through these masterpieces of timeless reflection.”  – The Honorable Beatrice Welters

Come enjoy high tea at the Georgetown Club with Washington, DC-based collectors, the Honorable Beatrice Welters and Anthony Welters. In the 1970’s, the Welters first started their collection with the purchase of a print by Henry O. Tanner. Today, their 
collection includes numerous works, with a focus on African American art of the 19th and 20th centuries. 

Jessica Stafford 
Davis will moderate an informal discussion with the Welters on topics that highlight their passion for collecting art by African American artists, how they wish to shape the legacy of their collection, and key influences on their decision-making process. Jessica Stafford Davis is the founder of The Agora Culture, a multicultural web-based business arts platform that connects artists with a diverse array of new and experienced collectors. In addition, The Agora Culture presents "Art on the Vine", a four-week artist residency and an art fair that takes place on Martha’s Vineyard.
