Miles McEnery Gallery is a five-year participant of the Seattle Art Fair, showcasing work from Wolf Kahn this year. Born in Germany, Kahn immigrated and studied art in the United States with renowned teacher and Abstract Expressionist painter Hans Hofmann. He creates fusions of color and spontaneity to produce rich and expressive bodies of work. His paintings can be found at collections in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; The Museum of Modern Art, NY; The Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC., and more. View his artwork with Miles McEnery Gallery at Booth A15.

Entering its fourth year at Seattle Art Fair, Diane Rosenstein Gallery will be featuring a variety of work from artists such as Aaron Fowler and KATSU. Fowler is the recipient of the 2019 Gwendolyn Knight and Jacob Lawrence Prize and will have a solo exhibition at the Seattle Art Museum this winter. KATSU is a new media artist, pioneering drone painting and drone graffiti. His projects question notions of reality, fiction, and ‘graffiti’ by integrating ideas of vandalism, commercialism, and technology. View their artwork with Diane Rosenstein Gallery at Booth B03.

We welcome back the Greg Kucera Gallery as another five-year participant to the Seattle Art Fair. This year, the gallery will be bringing artwork by Anthony White. The 24-year-old artist is already known as one of the buzziest artists in the Seattle area, recently graduating from Cornish College of the Arts. At last year’s fair, the gallery sold all four pieces brought by White. See his pieces next week at the Greg Kucera Gallery, Booths A17 and A21.

Todd Merrill Studio will be joining the Seattle Art Fair for the first time this year. The gallery will be featuring Przemek Pyszczek, a Polish-Canadian artist. His series of playfully utilitarian furniture Playground Structures bridges the gap between conceptual and functional. He completed Environmental Design (Architecture) at University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, before moving to Berlin in 2010 to pursue his own artistic work. See his installation with Todd Merrill Studio at Booth C19.

Traver Gallery

The Traver Gallery will be featuring work from Japanese artist and teacher Jun Kaneko in their fourth year with the Seattle Art Fair. Kaneko is best known for what he calls his dango sculptures (Japanese for “rounded form”), made of glazed ceramics. Born in Japan, he moved to the United States to continue his art studies, specifically during the time now defined as The Contemporary Ceramics Movement in America. His artwork appears internationally and nationally both at museum exhibitions and as public art commissions. View his work with the Traver Gallery at Booth C31.
