Hamamjian Modern will be participating in the Houston Fine Art Fair at the George R. Brown Convention Center from September 16-18, 2011.  This will be the first major fine art fair in Houston…a culturally oriented community that values and supports the arts.  International and domestic galleries have been carefully vetted to offer a high level of art. Hamamjian Modern will show the work of Lawrence Fodor, Gustavo Ramos Rivera and Harry Siter.

Lawrence Fodor lives and works in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  His work is minimal in nature with highly textured surfaces and rich color.  Some paintings are very large and some are miniature in size but either scale exudes depth, meaning and often the added dimension of a shared piece of the artist’s past.

Gustavo Ramos Rivera is a native of Mexico and currently lives and works in San Francisco.  His work is often brimming with color and spontaneity reminiscent of doodling at a high level.  We will show recent paintings and monotypes.

Harry Siter’s latest and life size sculptures will also be shown.  His work is hewn from large tree trunks, often with a chain saw, and then elevated with his masterful bronze work.  The work is in progress and we anxiously await the unfolding of his new series.

“The City of Houston is proud to host the inaugural Houston Fine Art Fair,” said City of Houston’s Mayor Annise Parker. “We endorse the fair’s efforts to focus attention on Houston as a vibrant hub for artists, collectors, galleries, and patrons of fine art. We hope to establish Houston, as a respected and must-attend, regular stop on the national and international fine art fair circuit.”

I hope to see you in Houston.

Best wishes,                Seb
