This past Thursday night on June 30th in Tribeca, Conception Contemporary Art Fair featured the work of Hutchins AMC emerging artists, Keli Lucas, Erika Rachel, Bianca Romero and Marty Morella.  For one night only, attendees had an intimate viewing of modern and eclectic art with original artwork on display. Conception Contemporary Art was a super sweet art show consisting of an evening filled with good vibes and incredible artwork.  A group of artists were showcasing modern and contemporary art work to display to the masses.
Keli Lucas was one of the artists who unveiled her work to rave reviews. She presented her newest series of portraits of creative peers and loved ones. If you look at Keli Lucas’s six exquisite paintings, you can actually see the progression of the artist in each one of her pieces. The color scheme of her latest work is the more refined version of her earlier acrylic pieces and you can actually recognize the evolvement of the artist. Artist Erika Rachel unveiled “The Compatibility Series” for the first time in NYC at the Conception Contemporary Art Show. Erika sold a few pieces as well that evening.

Bianca’s multimedia series was made of acrylic and print collage on canvas and consisted of a slew of interesting materials for a unique texture and a vibrant and striking visual appearance.

With Conception Art Fair’s innovative curation, they have exposed, educated, and provided guidance to novice and seasoned collectors alike. Their goal was to provide the highest quality of art and culture to the public, that they normally would not have access to. All in all, it was a beautiful night as chic New Yorkers explored the one­of­a­kind exhibit, socializing, admiring, and yes, purchasing, the eclectic curation of art. The event was a hit – the first of many -­ in which most of the art was sold and the works and talent of acclaimed and upcoming artists were showcased. Guests were enlightened as they celebrated new work by acclaimed artists of an eclectic curation of artwork and performance. I, for one, am looking forward to the next Conception art fair!
