A much-anticipated programming element of Redwood Media Group’s other art shows, the Spotlight Artist Program is being featured for the first time at Artexpo New York this year and will continue to be a highlight at the show in future years. The Spotlight Artist Program provides collectors a focused look at several cutting-edge artists who will each be creating a site-specific exhibition. This year, the artists selected are Ricardo Lowenberg, Alexis Silk, Jonathan Brender, and Gregg Albracht.

MEET THE ARTIST AND LIVE DEMONSTRATIONS
Meet the Artist sessions immerse the audience with the artists, giving them the opportunity to learn about each artist’s inspiration, story, and medium. In many cases, the artist also does a live demonstration, creating his or her next work of art.
See the unveiling of the winning original artwork of this year’s Artexpo New York Poster Challenge, The Princess of the Strawberry Mouth by Adrian Arrieta. Born in Cuba, Arrieta grew up longing to become an artist, but often felt discouraged by the impracticality of his dreams. Now a graphic design student in Miami, he is thankful to have received this extraordinary opportunity to showcase his artwork in the U.S. The Poster Challenge theme was “Chroma” and garnered 500+ entries.
