Kasia Kay now brings her vast experience and expertise in the fine art world, and fuses it with interior design. Her passion for both has given birth to "Fine Art Wallpapers"- where contemporary living and design meet art.
Kay Art Projects Gallery opened in January of 2006. For the past 7 years, Kasia's Chicago based gallery has focused on exhibiting to an international clientele through various art fairs and site-specific exhibition projects, removing the experience of the shows from the “white cube” of the conventional gallery space. Kasia Kay Art Projects manages to continue this integral narrative of permeability and flux while maintaining an established gallery space in the midst of Chicago’s vibrant West Loop gallery district.
The gallery artists and schedule of exhibitions reflect the innovative risks that gallery owner Kasia Kay is taking with contemporary art curating and displays. The gallery’s line-up is concept driven and exploratory, but manages to maintain the tenuous balance between abstract ideas and expertly crafted physical works. The majority of the gallery’s artists are multi-disciplinary, working in combinations of such diverse mediums as painting, drawing, video, sculpture, photography, and installation—thereby using whatever means best express their artistic concerns and goals. The resulting dialogue between form and inspiration is the locus of the gallery’s intended impact.
"Art Matters! As a long time curator and owner of Kasia Kay Art Projects gallery, I recognize the importance of international awareness of contemporary art, and so have worked with an international clientele and participated in an array of art fairs like ~ scope New York and Miami, Art Chicago, Volta NY, and more. We represent a broad range of artists who are pushing aesthetic and social boundaries. The gallery, since it’s opening in 2006, has garnered positive reviews in a variety of national publications such as Art in America and the New York Times. Many of the gallery’s artists have their work in prestigious private and public collections including Eaton, Morgan Stanley, Microsoft, Time Equities Inc., The Brooklyn Museum, The Tate Museum, The Walker Art Center, Kim Basinger, Luciano Pavarotti, David Letterman, Bill and Hillary Clinton." - Kasia Kay
