Established initially as a project space in 2010, Sienna Patti Contemporary represents and works with emerging and established artists creating engaging and thought provoking work. The artists bridge the worlds of art, craft, and contemporary design with innovative use of materials and mediums. Artwork made with a nod to craftsmanship in a serious way by artists that are using it as an intellectual and structural vehicle for their ideas. Working with young artists and showing the work alongside established figures that address similar ideas allow the gallery to have versatile and malleable walls – crossing though the restrictions of both the marketplace and history. The gallery is located in the culturally rich mecca of New England, the Berkshires. In spring of 2014 Sienna Patti will open a second space for large installation projects.
Sienna Patti Contemporary has exhibited at Pulse Art Fair, the Los Angeles Art Show, SOFA New York and Chicago and will present at the new design and art fair, Collective .1, in New York in May 2013. The gallery presents 5-7 solo exhibitions each year as well as coordinating exhibitions on behalf of its artists, most recently in the spring of 2013, Lauren Fensterstock’s solo exhibition at the Kohler Art Center in Wisconsin supported by the Warhol Foundation, and Barbara Nessim: An Artful Life at the Victoria and Albert in London. Artists that Sienna Patti works with and represents are included in collections as such as Metropolitan Museum, NY; Victoria and Albert, London; Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C.; Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, Australia; and the Museum of Modern Art, New York among many others.
