Sutton shows in NY and Dubai - Art Collector

6 February 2012 | Melbourne’s Sutton Gallery has been accepted into two international art fairs this March, Volta New York and Art Dubai.

At Volta, the gallery will present a solo exhibition by Stephen Bush. Bush is working on a series of large-scale paintings for the fair.

Later in March, Sutton will stage a group exhibition of work by Raafat Ishak, Elizabeth Gower and Nusra Qureshi at Art Dubai. Last year, the gallery had an extremely successful showing of Ishak’s work, selling his major piece Responses to an Immigration
Request from One Hundred and Ninety Four Governments.

Ishak will show a series of oil paintings at this year’s fair referencing abstraction and cubism and also incorporating ornamentation and symbols drawn from Australian, Middle East and European culture.

Volta New York runs from 8 to 11 March 2012 and Art Dubai runs from 21 to 24 March 2012.
