Fountain Art Fair Recap

Jason Mitchell and Adam Suerte had a blast at the Fountain Art Fair repping Urban Folk Art® Studios. They showcased their work, as well as the work of UFA® Gallery regulars KEO XMEN, Dr. REVOLT, Mark Bode, TRIKE GND, and VEEFER. It wasn't an easy set up, they didn't have chairs the whole weekend, but they managed to network, sell some work, and entertain ,friends and fans, and meet some great fellow artists.

From its roots deep within the independent Williamsburg, Brooklyn art scene, Fountain has grown to represent over 80 international avant garde galleries and projects, showcasing progressive primary-market works in New York, Miami, Chicago and Los Angeles.

Celebrated as the first of a new influential generation of alternative fairs, Fountain is reinterpreting the concept of the art fair experience and paving a new path for the future of contemporary art.
Fountain Art Fair is the foundation upon which a whole generation of working artists and galleries are able to engage the global art market on their on terms. As a family, Fountain comes together to define an accessible alternative vision for the future of contemporary art.”

3rd Anniversary Art show Featuring UFA® Founders Adam Suerte and Jason Mitchell

The Urban Folk Art® Gallery's 3rd Anniversary was in January. It's been a great 3 years bringing undiscovered, emerging, and established artists into the public's view (check out the studio's galleries on the facebook page to see all of the great shows we've put on). To celebrate (as we have been the last 3 years) we opened an artshow featuring the current works of 2 of the Urban Folk Art® Studio's founding members, Adam Suerte and Jason Mitchell. It was great to see everyone who came out, and the new work that Jason and Suerte have been doing. The work will be up through Feb, and is a great preview to the gallery's debut at the Fountain Art Fair coming up in March. More on that later. For now, here's some shots of the work, and for an entire show catalog, go HERE
