Quality Art Still Sells :: Joshua Liner’s Summer Show

The current mantra being echoed in auction house halls and on dealers’ calls is that despite the slowdown in art buying, there is still a strong audience and market for quality works of art.  As the dust settles over the mediocre, Joshua Liner further proves which side of the fence he falls on with the opening of an overwhelmingly strong show this past Saturday.  Liner’s Summer Group Exhibition includes many well-known painters, highlighted by Radioheads’ longtime visual guru, Stanley Downwood, Greg Craola Simkins, and Dave Kinsey, along with some very recognizable younger talents who have gained fast followings, like Chloe Early (who also shows with London’s Stolen Space) and Cleon Peterson (a member of Shepard Fairey’s Studio Number One design team).

Equally deserving are some of the lesser known bold new additions to the gallery including James Roper, Ryan McLennan and Tristram Lansdowne. Not surprising, there was a noticeable buzz amongst the crowd, who shared in the refreshing excitement of such a vast and impressive lineup. And with many of the works already sold, there’s proof that collectors will still open their wallets for undeniably and irresistibly good art.
