October 17, 2020 - Altima Palm Beach
After two successful years in partnership as Adelson Cavalier Galleries, Cavalier Gallery will open at 235c Worth Avenue
New York Icons come to Palm Beach this Season
Snowbirds aren’t the only ones coming to Palm Beach this season! In a few days, we can stroll down Worth Avenue, pop in to Cavalier Gallery and meet Jim Rennert’s bronze monumental men in suits reflecting their elevating trials and struggles. A selection of Bjorn Skaarup’s Hippo Ballerinas will also be on exhibit to lift your spirits!
Many of you are familiar with Jim Rennert’s monumental sculptures, a highlight of the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens last season which was a result of a partnership with Cavalier Gallery. If you didn’t catch that exhibit and the bronze man in the suit pictured, still looks familiar, you may have seen another work by Rennert, ‘Think Big‘ at Union Square or ‘Listen’ at 1350 Avenue of the Americas or maybe at the entrance of last year’s Palm Beach Modern and Contemporary Fair. By now you’ve probably realized how excited I am my friend Jim found a permanent Palm Beach home for these silent messengers, but it gets better…
Ron Cavalier has also brought Bjorn Skaarup’s iconic 8.5 foot Hippo Ballerina to the Ann Norton Sculpture Garden. If you are a New Yorker, you probably ran in to the impressive Degas-inspired tutu-clad hippo prominently visible at Lincoln Center in 2017, then and in front of the Flatiron building in 2019, and finally outside the Girl Scouts of America Building, at 420 Fifth Avenue 2019-2020. The exhibition at the Ann Norton Sculpture Garden will also include other works from Skaarup’s ‘Carnival of Animals’ series.
Cavalier Galleries is scheduled to open November 15, 2020. The new gallery location will continue Cavalier’s 35-year tradition of fine art exhibition, including emerging and established Contemporary artists, as well as handling historically significant artworks by 19th and 20th Century masters. Featured artists include Wolf Kahn, Robert Stark, John Terelak, Frank Corso, Paul Oxborough, Joseph McGurl, William Nelson, Jan Pawlowski, Guy Stanley Philoche, Maarten Platje, Jim Rennert, Bjorn Skaarup, Jane DeDecker, Edward Minoff, George Rickey, Louise Nevelson and an exclusive collection of Modern Masters pieces.
