AFA Events 2013
Dear Friends & Clients,

In 2012, collectors around the world re-invigorated the art industry by diversifying their tastes and art portfolios. While our gallery's mission has always been aligned with the sensibilities of classic and modern masters, the media's attention seemed to become captured by the contemporary art scene and "Zero Art" movement. Despite the trend, AFA continued to support artists who created imaginative artwork rooted in masterful technique, and thanks to these artists and our collectors, we have experienced exciting and extraordinary growth this past year.

The gallery continues to showcase an extraordinary group of artists who have a unique vision and manifest it with a great amount of technical virtuosity.  The criteria we have set inspires an interesting discussion, and we invite you to inquire to share our savvy. We can clarify why these particular artists are important today, and how they are moving towards inevitably making a significant contribution to the art world.

AFA's small stable of artists are represented passionately and permanently, not only in New York, but soon in New Orleans as well.  This new location will open on a great block on Royal Street in a couple of weeks. It is a little gallery right in the heart of the French Quarter.

A smaller number of exhibitions rotate through our historic gallery in France, which has been a thriving cultural center since 2005. Within the Chateau Belcastel we offer classical concerts, master classes and a private suite for visitors. It is beautiful and if you come out to visit when we are there during the summer we will be happy to show you around.

Our ability to showcase the art of great American illustrators shifted even before the passing of our friend Maurice Sendak this past May. Because so much of this artwork has been absorbed into museum and private collections, our decision to embrace new fine artists evolved organically. Our interest in figurative art will remain the foundation of our collective works, and important illustration work will continue to be showcased during special events such as the annal Collector's Show. As we have done in the past, we will share our collection and expertise with museums. Most recently, we have supported and curated The Maurice Sendak Memorial Exhibition that will tour museums around the USA in 2013.

AFA is pleased to present a lineup of artists in the coming year whose formidable artistic talents and museum resumes have gained them critical acclaim. All are in the sweet spot in their careers; established, focused, prolific and accessible to all collectors. It is an honor to know them, and a privilege to acquire their work.

We are especially happy to announce that we now represent Joe Sorren exclusively. In the USA we represent Anne BachelierPierre MatterNicoletta CeccoliBrian & Wendy FroudKirk ReinertLin Esser & David Lipson.

Please take a look at our calendar of events below. Save the dates, and please RSVP for any openings you would like to attend. We hope to see you soon.
