Garvey|Simon Future Fair booth featured in Artillery Magazine New York Art Week Future Fair and NADA report by Annabel Keenan

Female abstract artists were a popular choice for exhibitors, like Caroline Denervaud, whose geometric, charcoal drawings amazed viewers at Double V Gallery, and Sandy Litchfield, whose colorful paintings were on view in Garvey|Simon’s booth. Garvey|Simon was also a perfect example of how well exhibitors can work together. Litchfield’s paintings were joined by colorful mixed media sculptures by Roberley Bell presented by Raft of Sanity. The curved lines and modular structure of Bell’s works complemented the geometric shapes of Litchfield’s paintings.
