When it is predicted to reach 100 degrees in New York City, one of the best things to do is to visit the cool space of Aarne Anton's American Primitive Gallery. I never waited for the elevator...it was just a flight up, and the door always opened to a curious world. Aarne has the goods to prove his good eye. Folk Art collector Herbert Hemphill jr. once told me it took a more sophisticated collector to see in the round (meaning 3-Dimensional and sculptural.) I don't know if sophisticated is the right word, but certainly things you can see from many angles are often more fun than a painting on the wall. Just a small sample of the sculptural things available.
Click each title for description. Aarne posts six new items a week on Tuesday or Thursday, and there are literally over 100 objects to see on his site.
