Rising New York artist, Eddie Rehm, and surprising new-comer Emanuel Buckvar will be featured at Davenport and Shapiro Fine Arts in an exhibition of cutting-edge contemporary art in its East Gallery through the end of December.

“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 to exhibit these two artists with distinct styles, one almost disturbingly energetic with his “Instant Gratification Abstract”, and the other … calming, for his now almost classical allusions to the AbEx tradition,” says his partner, Leonard Davenport, “Both artists call Long Island home, but,” says Shapiro, “they have a raw, uncensored New York City feel.”

Eddie Rehm is one of the hotter 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 over 30 shows this year alone with several solo exhibitions and group shows in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Milwaukee, and Pennsylvania, as well local Art Leagues and Associations.

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 walkway from Newtown Lane to the parking lot. Its four separate spaces include an eclectic selection of 20th century paintings, sculpture and ceramics, and upstairs more affordable works on paper.
