Abstract Addictions: What's Next.....Who knows??
Vallarino Fine Art’s annual 175 page catalogue is their signature statement that no other gallery comes close to producing. It shows their vast inventories along with their taste and vision revealing itself. VFA’S goal is to produce something uniquely their own showing how art has been a part of their lifestyle over the past fifty years.

NEW YORK, NY.- Vallarino Fine Art, “What’s Next…..Who Knows??” Is a very fitting subtitle for Vallarino Fine Art’s annual 175 page catalogue. According to Vincent Vallarino, what has happened in the past six months seems unimaginable, then again, he says, “This could be a blessing in disguise, a kind of wake-up call for all of us. Our global treatment of humanity, our planet’s environment, economic collapse, civil rights and politics have caused a boiling point in our society. Then add the Covid-19 Pandemic to top things off and there you have “What’s Next…..Who Knows? “

Vallarino’s outlook on the current art market and how the pandemic has affected it is extremely direct. He states, “ One thing I know is art and the art market has literally been around forever and has weathered centuries of wars, economic crashes and many other global disasters, it will continue to prevail, perhaps in new ways to which it will need to reinvent itself. I believe a correction is taking place, as has happened in every market throughout history, when strained by historic events. The brick & mortar gallery model is becoming a thing of the past and the existence of art fairs in the near future is questionable regarding the current health situations for the dealers and the collectors who attend. I believe that a large group of galleries are going to close as their business models aren’t strong enough to survive these extreme times. It is my opinion the galleries that will prevail are the ones who have “skin in the game”, own what they sell and have weathered difficult times before. These are the individuals who have spent their lives deep within the passion of art.”

Vallarino has been in the art business for the past 50 years and owns everything they sell. They believe in their expertise through knowledge, scholarship and taste which is reassured by their experience and foresight within the art market. Fifteen years ago they became a private gallery because it was apparent that their audience was focused on what they owned and represented making their business intimate and personable unlike many larger galleries. VFA has a beautiful 3,000 square foot townhouse located at 222 East 49th Street in New York City, next door to Kathryn Hepburn’s old residence. There you will find in-situ viewing with mid-century furnishings as one would in their own home instead of a white box gallery setting. They also have a 6,000 square foot studio in Millbrook, New York 85 miles north of the city in the Hudson River Valley which was originally part of Henry Flagler’s family’s estate. Their two private destination locations are the perfect settings for viewing their vast inventories of Post War and Modern Art in the most private and safe accommodations one could dream of.

VFA’s annual 175 page catalogue is their signature statement that no other gallery comes close to producing. It shows the vast inventories as well as their taste which focuses on the New York School of Post War artists. They are currently in production of a series of short films exemplifying what they do, how they do it and with focus on the extraordinary works of art they possess, uniquely showing how art has been a part of their lifestyle for over the past 50 years.

Vallarino expresses that, “For me art is the purist addiction that exists, and overtime has realized that it’s eclectic relationship with color, form and space connect everything in mysterious ways.”

He continues to believe that the future is all about the past.
