Rising New York artists, Eddie Rehm and Emanuel Buckvar, will open the
2012 summer season at Davenport & Shapiro Fine Arts in an exhibition of
cutting-edge contemporary art in its East Gallery.

“We are committed to bringing our clients high quality, but reasonably
priced, investment grade art, not limited to one period. We feel both
artists’ work is on-the-cusp,” says co-owner Howard Shapiro. “We were
intrigued by the work of these two artists with distinct styles, one
almost disturbingly energetic with his “Instant Gratification
Abstract,” and the other … calming, for all its now almost classical
allusions to the Abstract Expressionist tradition,”  says his partner,
Leonard Davenport, “Both artists call Long Island home, but, they have
a raw, uncensored New York City feel.”

Eddie Rehm is one of the hottest new artists to emerge recently.  His
work has been described by one art critic as “a fusion of raw emotion,
deliberately instinctual design, and art-medium experimentation.”  He
has participated in numerous solo and group gallery exhibitions in New
York, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, Milwaukee, and Pennsylvania, as
well as a museum show in Las Vegas.  He has recently been named as one
of the International Contemporary Masters in the fifth annual juried

Emanuel Buckvar’s expressive passion grew out of his love of his
grandparents’ fantastic art collection.  It led him to become an art
dealer at a young age.  “Buying and selling art, however,” he says,
“was not enough to feed my love, so I decided to create my own.”  His
customers include serious private collectors. “In some sense, Buckvar
could be considered an outsider artist,” says Davenport.  “He has had
no formal training, except by exposure to the art of others.  His work,
however, is very sophisticated.”

Davenport and Shapiro Fine Arts is located on the southern most walkway
from Newtown Lane to the parking lot.  Its four separate spaces
including an eclectic selection of 20th century paintings, sculpture,
ceramics, and affordable works on paper.
