100 days 100 galleries; Day 76: James Barron Art, Kent CT

James Barron founded his art business in 1987 as a private art dealer and consultant, and established James Barron Art in 2010.  He specializes in modern and contemporary American and European art.

Carlos Fentanes: Spiritual Circle: Great Title. Do you think the spirituality can redeem the materiality?

The gallery didn’t answer.

Spiritual Circle is the title of the last show of Beverly Pepper in James Barron’s Project Space. That’s why the question that wasn’t answered yet, sometimes a gallery shows up a month after I sent the message so it’s hard to guess if this gallery is going to answer in the future.

But I think the question is valid; in Art we can have mixed materiality and spirituality in one object, Art can be our vehicle to enlightenment, to discover our upper spirit and that’s why it’s sad for me to hear a description of the work of an artist as: “This piece was auctioned for one million dollar“. Is that a description of an artwork? Is that its value?

Well, I tried to reach this gallery but at the end nothing happened; in their website the gallery doesn’t specify anything about submissions.
