Sienna Patti has a project and exhibition based program focusing on the work of contemporary studio artists. The artists bridge the worlds of art, craft, and contemporary design with innovative use of materials and mediums. Artwork made with a nod to craftsmanship in a serious way by artists that are using it as an intellectual and structural vehicle for their ideas. Working with young artists and showing the work alongside established figures that address similar ideas allow the gallery to have versatile and malleable walls – crossing though the restrictions of both the marketplace and history. Initially established in 1998 as a venue for contemporary studio jewelry, the gallery continues to represent and work with studio jewelers around the world. In conjunction with the gallery, SGPress publishes monographs, catalogs and books. The gallery presents 8-10 group and solo exhibitions a year as well as exhibiting at art and design fairs throughout the world. We work with major museums to help establish and complete contemporary jewelry collections as well as offering appraising and collection services to our clients. Our artists are in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The Victoria and Albert Museum, London; The Museum of Modern Art in New York; Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum in New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, Australia; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, CA; Smithsonian Institution, D.C; Museum of Art And Design, New York; Museum of Fine Art, Houston; Museum of Fine Art, Boston; Musee de Louvre, Paris; Philadelphia Museum of Art; and more.
We currently have a full roster of artists, but occasionally review new submissions. For consideration, please look over our site carefully and be sure that your work is compatible with our program. We will not be able to accommodate artists who call or stop by the gallery. We regret that we cannot respond to every submission.
