Ao5 Gallery will host art dealer Walter Edelman
New York art dealer Walter Edelman will be visiting Austin in late February, bringing hundreds of pieces of art to Ao5 Gallery at 3005 South Lamar Blvd. for a weekend trunk show. Edelman deals in original work by old & modern masters such as Calder, Chagall, Dalí, Erte, Haring, Lichtenstein, Magritte, Miro, Neiman, Picasso, Warhol, and more. His travelling collection will be on display in Austin for two days only:
Saturday & Sunday, Feb. 22-23rd
10am-6pm | 12pm-5pm
“I represent 250 artists in 27 countries ranging from the Old Masters through today,” Edelman said during a recent telephone interview. “I offer every style of art from 15th-century Renaissance through 21st century abstract expressionism.” All the pieces in the Edleman Fine Art collection are authentic and original. “Anything we sell comes with biographical information about the artist and a certificate of authenticity.”
As a third-generation art dealer, Edelman has traveled the world to find the best artists to represent. Edelman’s grandfather founded the company, which is a major supplier for many art galleries throughout the United States, in 1911. “My father worked here, and I had an uncle and aunts who worked here,” Edelman said. “And I’ve been doing this for 46 years.” He is an expert on the art techniques of the masters and will spend his time at the gallery talking about each piece that he brings. “The people who come to the art show are gonna get an education. Most people don’t really know what kind of art they like,” he said. “I want them to learn to enjoy the pieces that speaks to them and forget about their preconceived notions.”
The artwork from Edleman Fine Art for this special weekend event will arrive unframed, but Ao5 Gallery offers a full range of custom framing services including stretching, mounting, UV protection to preserve your new-found treasures for a lifetime.
Ao5 Gallery is free and open to the public every day of the week.
Monday – Friday: 10am-6pm | Weekdays After 6pm by Appointment Only.
Saturdays: 10am-6pm | Sundays: 12-5pm
