Experience the thrill of the Hunt: an interview with Susan Nelly, Fine Art Consultant and Owner of The Villa America Fine Art

Friday, October 4th, 2019

Susan Nelly is a Fine Art Consultant and Owner of The Villa America Fine Art. She began her career in the art world at Sotheby’s and has since held notable positions in prominent galleries and auction houses including Spanierman Gallery and Bonham’s Auctioneers & Appraisers. A recognized expert in secondary market sales and acquisitions, Susan also engages the fine art community as a member of ArtTABLE and a founding member of the Association of Women Art Dealers (AWAD). On the contemporary side, Susan maintains strong relationships with artists from New York and around the world, curates collaborative exhibitions with prominent galleries, and participates in major art fairs.

Established in 2014, The Villa America Fine Art was inspired by the French Riviera salon of Sara and Gerald Murphy. The Murphys’ commune attracted cultural luminaries of the 1920s — Picasso, Hemingway, Fernand Leger,and many more — and it is this passion for art, adventure, and community-building that The Villa America evokes. Dedicated to promoting a spirit of adventure towards collecting, Susan presents a bold selection of emerging and mid-career artists in the mix with Modern and Contemporary painting, sculpture, and photography from America and Europe. www.thevillaamerica.com 

Services offered include: Private and auction sales and acquisitions; acquisition/curatorial collaboration for dealers, interior designers, architects, cultural and corporate institutions, hotels and hospitality groups; market research and vetting of works of art for authenticity, quality, value and condition; negotiation of payment terms, including coordination of shipping, framing and installation; and collection maintenance.

PANEPINTO GALLERIES, in collaboration with SPEAR STREET CAPITAL, presents REFLECTIONS by Candy Le Sueur

Thursday, October 3rd, 2019

PANEPINTO GALLERIES, in collaboration with SPEAR STREET CAPITAL, presents REFLECTIONS, highlighting artwork by Jersey City based artist Candy Le Sueur.

Candy Le Sueur is known for her large-scale expressive abstracted paintings and her intimate mixed media on paper, which includes monotypes. Her imagery offers spontaneous expressions of her perception of the land, sea and sky, seeking to remind us of the eternal beauty beyond a specific space or time.

 The concept behind this exhibition entitled “Reflections” presents a collection of Le Sueur’s work created over the past four years. Her work addresses her continued fascination with the beauty of the natural world. 

The expressive motion of the brushstroke, free floating colors and subtle tonal shifts in Le Sueur’s oil paintings allows one not to look for a particular landscape, but to enjoy the sheer effervescence of the paint itself. Twilight Time, a series of watercolor ink and silver leaf is a new choice of medium for Le Sueur to present her ideas. These small works on paper reflect a larger unpredictable drama of the early night sky at Twilight. Using an etching printing press, she also creates monotypes in a single process on fine Japanese paper. This versatile medium also enables her to construct the entire work from layered printed papers. (more…)
