ABBY MODELL The ‘2015 Galaxy Collection’ encompasses my vision of contemporary glass by capturing the viewer’s imagination in modernistic wall installations and sculptural objects. The expansive spatial dimension is accomplished by adding mirrored finishes to many of the pieces. Focused on transparencies and light within the objects, my work is inspired by the natural swirling formations of the stars, planets, and the infinite dimension of the night sky. The contemporary shapes, intriguing textures and a focus on composition allow the viewer’s eye and mind to go on an imaginative journey of discovery with each unique work. My passion for clean shapes and design are influenced by the noted Op-Artist Vasarely, the Art Deco designs of the artist Erte and his contemporaries. • SELECTED EXHIBITIONS 2015, 2013 SOFA Chicago, Chicago, IL 2015, 2013 Art Palm Beach, Palm Beach, FL 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2009 Architectural Digest Home Design Show, New York, NY 2015, 2014, 2013 Market Art + Design, Bridgehampton, NY 2015, 2013 Wynn LVNV, Sculpture and Large Works, Solo Exhibition, Las Vegas, NV 2014, 2013 Red Dot Art Fair, Miami, FL 2014 New York Art, Antique & Jewelry Show, New York, NY 2014 Hampton Designer Showhouse, Bridgehampton, NY 2014 Serpentine Sackler Gallery Furniture Exhibition, Martino Gamper Collection, Kensington Gardens, London, England 2014, 2013 ICFF, New York, NY 2014 Gallery 88, “Invisible Muse,” Miami Beach, FL 2013 Bloomingdale’s, Lexington Avenue Window Installation, Landscape in Rainbow, New York, NY 2012 Collector’s Event, Sculpture, AFA, SoHo, NY 2011, 2010 SOFA NYC, New York, NY 2011, 2009 ArtHamptons International Art Fair, Bridgehampton, NY 2010 Gansevoort Miami Beach, Art Basel Week, Miami, FL • JURIED AWARDS 2014, 2012, 2011, 2010 Interior Design Market Tabloid, LunarRocks, Organic Vessels, Puzzle Vessels, Rock Gem Sculpture-Berry 2014 ASID Design Specialty Award, Finalist 2014 The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt selected designer, New York, NY 2014 ASID Top Pick, Architectural Digest Home Design Show 2014 January Invitational Exhibition Venetian Cane Sculpture, Art Essex Gallery, Essex, CT 2013 Niche Awards Finalist: Rock Gem Sculpture, Berry 2012 The 1st International Biennale of Santorini Sculpture: Santorini, Greece 2012 Niche Awards Finalist: Dionysus Sculpture 2011 Black and White Art Show BWAC, Red Hook, Brooklyn, NY 2011 Honoree Interior Design, Best of Year Awards, Organic Vessels 2010 New*Art The Armory Art Center, Sculpture, West Palm Beach, FL 2010 Transcendence - The Magic of Glass Museum & Arts Center, Sequim, WA 2010 The Art of Applied Design DHM Digital Gallery • GALLERY REPRESENTATION 2015 Chase Edwards Contemporary Fine Art Bridgehampton, NY 2013 James Harold Galleries Lake Tahoe, CA 2013 RASgalleries Yountville, CA 2013 AFA SoHo, NY 2011 Dobronte Fine Art for Frank Dobronte Genoa, NV 2011 Hallmark Gallery La Jolla, CA 2011 Clark Priftis Art Baltimore, MD 2010 GINA Gallery New York, NY 2010 Ocean Gallery Stone Harbor, NJ • PERMANENT COLLECTIONS 2013 Morgan Stanley, World Headquarters, New York, NY 2009 Fontainebleau Hotel, South Beach, Miami, FL • EDUCATION 2006 Michael Davis Glass Studio, New York, NY (current) 1976 Syracuse University and Parsons School of Design, BFA • Represented by Clark Priftis Art, Ann Priftis,, 917-647-6835,
