Art on Paper at Heller Gallery, Manhattan’s Pier 36, September 7 – September 10, 2023

Heller Gallery is delighted to announce its debut participation at Art on Paper, where it will present a curated selection of works by Kerry Miller, Mel Douglas & Sibylle Peretti. The fair, held at downtown Manhattan’s Pier 36, opens on Thursday, September 7 and runs through Sunday, September 10. 

Heller Gallery, celebrating 50 years as New York’s leading dealer specializing in contemporary glass sculpture and design, champions artists whose materially based work is bending and breaking boundaries of the contemporary art world.

British artist Kerry Miller makes assemblages using vintage books and re-imagines their content using the illustrations found within. Cutting, tinting and collaging flowers, birds and characters from each selected volume she allows them to pop-up and grow from its original confines into a new dimension. German-born artist Sibylle Peretti sculptures and multimedia collages, which combine photography & drawing with surface interventions such as engraving, mirroring and glass slumping. Poetic narratives about the relationship between humans and the natural world, are the central themes in her work. Australian Mel Douglas subtle, elegant, minimalist work explores the potential, versatility, and flexibility of drawing on and with glass and has been praised as quiet, but strangely energetic and animated.
