2015 is a year of change

January 4th, 2015

Welcome to StevenGagnon.com, the best way to keep up with all of my artistic activities, news, and upcoming exhibitions.

Happy New Year! 2015 will be a year of much change. My artist residence at the ArtCenter South Florida will end on April 30th due to the sale of their icon ArtDeco 800/810 building were I currently have my studio. As a result, I am currently in the process of buying a building in Miami. If all goes well, I will close on the property at the end of February and have a new space for creative exploration.

Until then, I am still working and developing new pieces. I am continuing with the investigation of juxtaposing images and objects to convey new meanings. I look forward to posting the results soon.

I wish you all the best in 2015 and perhaps see you before I leave Lincoln Road.

Best,

Steven

New German show and success at Hamptons fair

August 3rd, 2014

Welcome to StevenGagnon.com, the best way to keep up with all of my artistic activities, news, and upcoming exhibitions.

I just returned on Thursday night from driving up to the Hamptons in New York for the Art Southampton Art Fair. The show went very well. Markowicz Fine Art was able to sell my two new cut out pieces at the fair. As well, I was able to spend time with my German gallerist, Burkhard Eikelmann, who will include the large and small Money Laundering prints, the HOPE and PROGRESS serigraphs, and the Dollar Spangled Banner in the upcoming Great American Summer Show that opens August 10th.

Now that I am back, I have been taking care of a lot of things that have been neglected since I have been away. I hope to be caught up with everything by Tuesday so I can get back to focusing on a new body of work about which I am very excited.

Also I recently set up an instagram account, so please visit steven_d_gagnon to see the latest works in progress and photos from the studio.

In the meantime, I trust this finds you well and wish you all the very best,

Showing at ArtSouthampton July 24 to 28th

July 6th, 2014

Welcome to StevenGagnon.com, the best way to keep up with all of my artistic activities, news, and upcoming exhibitions.

I have been a bit delinquent with updating my blog the past few weeks. In that time, I went to New York for the Frieze Art Fair as well as to see the numerous other satellite fairs. It was a nice break from Miami, and I got to see old friends and as well as some great artwork. Since I have been back, I have been developing a new body of work that is showing a lot of promise.

As for other news, Markowicz Fine Art is showing a number of my pieces at the Art Southampton Art Fair, the Hamptons premier international contemporary and modern art fair taking place, July 24 through 28, 2014. The fair features more than 90 international art galleries that focus on works from the 20th and 21st centuries. For complimentry entry passes, please go here. Also I recently set up an instagram account, so please visit steven_d_gagnon to see the latest works in progress and photos from the studio.

Major changes were announced this week that the ArtCenter South Florida where I have my studio will sell their landmark building located at 800 and 810 Lincoln Road. It is estimated the process will take a year. So in the upcoming months, I will be finishing up loose ends and making plans for the future.

I trust you had a GREAT 4th of July weekend, and wish you all the very best,

Steven

New Edition Using Real $100 Bill

May 4th, 2014

Welcome to StevenGagnon.com, the best way to keep up with all of my artistic activities, news, and upcoming exhibitions.

I recently launched a new print edition using an actual $100 bill. The work which measures only 9 7/8 x 7 x 1 1/8 inches framed is a smaller version of the Money Laundering (Bribe) print. However since the smaller piece uses a real $100 bill, it could really be used as a Bribe if given as a gift.

As for other news, the opening of the two person show that I was part of at Markowicz Fine Art was a success! There was a good turn out of people and a number of works sold during the opening. The exhibition will run from now until the beginning of May, so you still have time to check it out if you haven’t seen it already.

As for myself, I have been re-establishing order in my studio after the hectic pace to get ready for the exhibition. It is so nice to have the artwork properly hung as well as making room by getting rid of excess materials. I can finally walk around and work in my space again! So now that the dust has settled, my plan is to get back to making new pieces as well as finishing up works that are almost done.

I trust this finds you well,

Steven

Markowicz Fine Art Show April 17th

March 15th, 2014

Welcome to StevenGagnon.com, the best way to keep up with all of my artistic activities, news, and upcoming exhibitions.

I have been neglecting my blog updates for the past few weeks as I had a lot going on. Last week, I went to New York to see the fairs during the Armory Art Week. Of the fairs that I visited, I especially liked Spring Break for its’ raw Berlin feeling, the sophistication and intimacy of the ADAA, and the Modern Section of the main Armory Fair. Also kudos to the Fountain Art Fair, it was the best organized Fountain that I have seen to date. It was a great trip. I got to have a little winter weather for a few days, make new friends as well as see old ones, and experience some good art. Overall a very enjoyable time.

Now that I am back, I am re-energized and am prepping for my upcoming show at Markowicz Fine Art that opens April 17th. I working diligently so I can unveil a number of new pieces for the show. So I will be hidden away in the studio until then.

I trust this finds you well,

Steven

Artwork on exhibit on Lincoln Road

January 12th, 2014

Welcome to StevenGagnon.com, the best way to keep up with all of my artistic activities, news, and upcoming exhibitions.

I have been neglecting my blog updates for sometime now. December was a busy month with ArtBasel happening during the first week and then I had to have a new work ready for exhibition in the ArtCenter South Florida’s storefront window on Lincoln Road. I created an enlarged version of a vintage 1960 RCA Victor television that was double the original scale. In place of a picture tube, I created one using painted gray toy soldiers that resemble noise when a TV doesn’t have reception. The piece went up shortly before Christmas and has been attracting a lot of attention and will be on view until January 21st. In addition to the large TV, I have also finished two other studies that use actual vintage TV cabinets.

As for other news, I visited New York on Thursday to see the opening of Berlin artist, Gregor Hildebrant’s solo exhibition at Galerie Perrotin. Gregor is an artist who I met in 2006 when visiting the Berlin Biennale. The exhibition marked his first New York solo show as well as his first with Galerie Perrotin. If you find yourself in the Big Apple before February 22nd, I highly recommend seeing the show.

As for what’s going on in the studio, I have recently published a hardcover book of all of my available artwork using the Blurb online publishing website that you can preview here. The book is my most current documentation of latest works, many of which I have not yet posted to the website. Check it out when you have the chance.

I wish you all the very best in 2014! I know I am looking forward to getting a lot of new pieces in the studio.

Happy New Year,

Steven
