New York, NY, June 9, 2020—Intersect Art and Design announces a pop-up edition of Intersect Aspen, an art and design fair taking place in person at the Aspen Ice Garden from August 1-5, 2021.

Becca Hoffman, Managing Director of Intersect Art and Design says, “We are so pleased to be returning to Aspen this summer for what promises to be a dynamic and exciting time in the mountains. As our first in-person event since the pandemic, the curated selection of galleries highlights a thoughtful mix of established and younger galleries from around the country showcasing art, design, and photography.”
Tim von Gal, CEO of Intersect Art and Design adds, “As in-person events return, there is a palpable momentum and excitement to be in Aspen this summer, which is a sentiment that is shared by the local community, and so many galleries and collectors who are coming from out of town. This pop-up edition of Intersect Aspen will be a vibrant destination for people who can’t wait to get back to seeing art, and each other, in person.”
Paul Laster, Curatorial Advisor for Intersect Art and Design, comments, “An invitation-only, intimate art and design fair, Intersect Aspen has been selectively curated to stimulate an already

Highlights include solo presentations of April Gornik’s luminous landscapes at Miles McEnery Gallery and Elizabeth Condon’s fluid abstractions at Emerson Dorsch; pairings of Basil Kincaid
and Jon Young's sculptural reliefs at Carl Kostyál and Linda Lopez ceramics and Caroline Larson's still life paintings at Mindy Solomon Gallery; combinations of art and design objects at Friedman Benda and Sélavy by Di Donna; and group presentations of Abstract Expressionist women artists at Berry Campbell Gallery; and WILDflowers, capturing blossoms in a variety of media and styles, at Nancy Hoffman Gallery.
Additional information follows. Exhibitors not listed here will be providing more information in the weeks leading up to the fair.
Berry Campbell Gallery will feature an exhibition of the often underrepresented and lesser- known women artists of the Postwar movement, including a selection of paintings and works on paper by women Abstract Expressionists Elaine de Kooning, Grace Hartigan, Perle Fine, Judith Godwin, Gertrude Greene, Yvonne Thomas, Charlotte Park, and Ida Kohlmeyer.
Carl Kostyál will present two American artists, Basil Kincaid and Jon Young, whose work shares a powerful common thread. Basil Kincaid and Jon Young both create sculptural works with a focus on layered meanings found in material, place, and identity. Kincaid’s quilted structures made of dollar bills call into question the hard value of the American dollar. Young’s pillowy iridescent Western imagery invokes notions of the elusiveness of a constructed idea of America.
Casterline|Goodman Gallery will show works by George Condo, Simon Hantai, Ed Ruscha, Sean Scully, Richard Serra, and David Yarrow.
Emerson Dorsch will exhibit work by mid-career artist Elisabeth Condon who makes paintings that nearly always begin with poured paint and grow to reflect the legacy of abstract expressionists, 5th century Chinese landscapes, North American interior decor patterns, and her personal history in landscapes and decor. Her recent paintings grow from her latest obsession with the lattice pattern that permeated wallpapers and textiles in her mother’s house.
Galleri Urbane will present work by artists Jozsef Csato, Benjamin Terry, Sam Mack, and Jessica Drenk.
Half Gallery will host a group presentation including artists Hiejin Yoo, Umar Rashid, and Young Lim Lee.
HESSE FLATOW will bring work by Quentin James McCaffrey and Amanda Baldwin. McCaffrey uses single-point perspective, layers of oil paint on panel or canvas, and treatment of light to render domestic interior spaces. Baldwin's paintings seek a geometric order and reason: raindrops are spheres, mountains are triangles, melon seeds are perfect teardrop voids.
Miles McEnery Gallery hosts a solo presentation of work by April Gornik, whose masterfully rendered paintings depict radiant and atmospheric scenes of the land, water, and sky. Working in oil paint, Gornik captures the subtle nature of light with its capacity to simultaneously illuminate and obscure.
Mindy Solomon Gallery will showcase the works of artists Caroline Larson and Linda Lopez, with a focus on color and texture. Each artist will exhibit two- and three-dimensional pieces informed by surface. Caroline Larsen has created a series of still life images with bold patterned backgrounds surrounding psychedelic floral arrangements painted with oil paint through a piping
tool. Linda Lopez has developed a body of work of varying sizes and shapes that embodies her signature “furry” style—a color-laden garden of porcelain delights.
Monica King Projects will present the exhibition Nightfall | Daybreak, focusing on artists who make use of brilliant surfaces, materiality, subtle or overt reflection, and powerful contrasts of light and shadow to explore deeper spiritual states and realities. Works include Chris Watts’ luminously layered mixed media paintings on silk stretched on found wood, Prema Murthy’s ethereal acrylic on canvas paintings; Oswaldo Ruiz’s photographs of dramatically lit, abandoned houses in Anahuac, north of Mexico; and Michael Wolf’s deeply rooted and impactful sculptures which investigate the house as a metaphor for the human experience.
Nancy Hoffman Gallery will present the exhibition WILDflowers featuring paintings, drawings, watercolors, photographs, and sculptures around the theme of the wildflower, from the dandelion blowing in the breeze in a Za Zhong (multi-layer resin and paint) by Hung Liu to a terra cotta lip- shaped blossom on a curling branch by Judy Fox, to a bee about to land on a wild bloom in a watercolor by Joseph Raffael. All the works have the spirit of nature with a touch of the wild.
Nancy Littlejohn Fine Art will exhibit a multifaceted group of works that highlight the gallery’s enduring focus on the medium of painting. With works from the present day, the exhibition brings together artists whose distinctive practices have shaped, reimagined, and propelled the possibilities of paint.
Sélavy by Di Donna will present classic masterpieces of the twentieth century, including paintings by Andy Warhol and Helen Frankenthaler, styled with works of design in an interior setting.
Voltz Clarke Gallery will present Natasha Law’s paintings and drawings which capture the allure of the female body through color, tone, and contrast; and Khalilah Birdsong’s abstract and layered paintings which reference nature while combining physicality with a precision and finely calibrated balance.
