Cornering the Market

On November 9, RH Contemporary Art unveiled a 28,000-square-foot art gallery within a six-story building at 437 West 16th St. The Manhattan venue is the first in a series of such spaces that the new division of the 33-year-old luxury furnishings company Restoration Hardware plans to open around the country; a second is slated for 2014 in Los Angeles. After an in-depth vetting process, RH Contemporary Art, along with its team of 15 curators, selected the galleries’ contemporary works, which for the New York debut consisted of a number of commissioned pieces by five artists: Nathan Baker, Toby Christian, Peter Demos, Samantha Thomas (Landscapification #3, shown at left), and Natasha Wheat (Field Without Color #10, middle; Field Without Color #7, right). The offerings in the November exhibitions include paintings, sculpture, and mixed media and carry prices ranging from $4,750 to $26,000.
