New York based artist Emma Tapleyhas a connection with nature that her biography might belie. When most people think of artists from New York, they might think avant-garde or modern art presented in non-traditional mediums. However, a constant theme in Tapley's work is in fact nature. Trees, leaves, puddles, and grasses, all find there way onto her canvases. The interesting thing is that although there is a sense of serenity and calm in her work, somehow there is an overwhelming feeling of power. Like nature itself. The Fischbach Galleryin Chelsea (NYC) has a brand new show of Ms. Tapley's work opening November 8th. Fischbach has a loyal following of devoted art collectors that truly appreciate the talent behind every painting. Fischbach truly believes in nurturing artists, often representing them for decades.
If you visit the Fischbach Gallery, be sure to make a day or at least afternoon out of it. The HighLine is just steps away. A perfect place to go after a gallery visit. CookShop is a favorite restaurant of celebrities and locals for its hardy and locally harvested menu. The Chelsea Market also offers a huge assortment of food, sweets, and shopping opportunities. If you visit on a sunny day, by all means visit the newly restored and beautiful Hudson River Park. Of course, the best thing about NYC is that you don't need to make plans at all. An amazing day can unfold itself just by walking down the street, that's New York!
