Join Oh Suzanna’s Gallery at the Emerson in Bozeman, Montana on February 14, 2014 from 6:00 - 8:00 PM for an opening reception for paintings by Chaucer Silverson. Chaucer is a Bozeman painter whose work focuses on colorful atmospheric portrayals and gestural abstractions. This show will offer a glimpse into studio works used in the development of his artistic concepts.
" This group of work represents work I’ve done for about 4 years. It begins with the Insight series which started as multiple layers of blue watercolor fields that intend to create an atmospheric situation to offer viewers a moment of insight. These pieces developed into color and pattern work in acrylic. After working on these time consuming compositions a great need arose to prepare panels with a solid field of color, load up a brush, and complete a composition in a gesture, with a limited number of brush strokes. These gestures represent a notion as it crosses your mind. They’re conceived out of whatever I was thinking at the time. They relate nicely to the Zen Circles I’ve painted for years, which are also made in a single brush stroke.
My intention for the reduction of subject matter is to capture and present the significance of what remains. The work assumes, and depends on some essential content on the part of the viewer, and offers a measure of interpretation to be successful."
Chaucer Silverson's artwork will be displayed in Miami in one of the booths in the SCOPE Art Fair. It will be displayed in rotation on several HD plasma screens from December 3rd-8th. The SCOPE Art Fair overlaps with Art Basel Miami, the favorite winter meeting place for the international art world. At the nexus of North America and Latin America, the Art Basel show presents premier artwork from across the globe. Over 250 of the world's leading galleries participate, drawing over 50,000 visitors each year.
With miles of sandy beaches dotted with classic Art Deco architecture, world-class art museums, and a glittering nightlife, Miami Beach ranks among America's most iconic cities. During Art Basel, it embraces the artworld with special exhibitions at museums and galleries across the city, transforming the week into a dense and dynamic cultural event.

If you're in Miami next week, please stop by the booth and let us know how it looks.
One year ago ARTCHAUCER artgallery attended the first edition of the Affordable Art Fair in Seattle. As the Seattleite promotes this year's AAF Seattle they used an image from the ARTCHAUCER booth to show audiences where they can find high quality contemporary art. Since the first AAF Seattle show we've welcomed 4 excellent artists to the collection and look forward to adding a few more in the next few months. Hopefully we'll make it back to the AFF Seattle in 2014. Until then you can continue to find quality art at ARTCHAUCER's website and the ARTCHAUCER Amazon Art Storefront.
Here's a video about Jay Schmidt's work showing at the Missoula Art Museum in his own words.
ARTCHAUCER showed work at the Affordable Art Fair Seattle with work by Jay Schmidt, Kathryn W. Schmidt, Harold Schlotzhauer, and Chaucer Silverson. Hosting 50 galleries and a huge array of contemporary art, the first-ever edition of the Affordable Art Fair in Seattle took place November 8-11, 2012 at the Seattle Center.
The Affordable Art Fair concept is an inspiring atmosphere in which you can find thousands of original paintings, prints, sculptures and photographs all under one roof, ranging from $100-$10,000, with more than half priced under $5,000. The work of young, emerging artists hangs alongside some of the biggest household names, and the Emerging Artists Exhibition provides a chance to snap up work by a future art world star.
The A R T C H A U C E R art gallery at the Affordable Art Fair Seattle received coverage in the Art Nerd New York art blog along with many other galleries and artists in attendance. You can see images of the fair, including two shots of the ARTCHAUCER booth on Lauren Albrecht's New York City based blog.
The fair hosted work from the Smart Ship Gallery in Tokyo to the Civilian Art Project Gallery in Washington DC. Many galleries from Seattle represented the Pacific Northwest and Galleries form many points in the U.S. were in attendance including the Galleria el Arupo form Equador and the Villa del Arte Galleries from Barcelona, Spain. Work by Damien Hirst was shown by the Manifold Editions gallery in London and numerous other galleries contributed to provide an accessable collection of affordable art. If the market doesn't come to Bozeman, Montana then Bozeman will have to go to the market.
