Quogue Gallery will be making its debut at this year’s Art Palm Beach, running from Wednesday, January 17 to Sunday, January 21, 2018 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center located at 650 Okeechobee Boulevard, West Palm Beach, Florida. The gallery will be featuring the work of three painters in booth 409: Sally King Benedict, Harry Bertschmann, and Melinda Zox.

Sally King Benedict is a contemporary artist living and working in Atlanta, Georgia. She and her work have been featured in major publications across the U.S., including Elle Decor, Architectural Digest, Domino, Garden & Gun, and Southern Living, among others. 

Appealing to both established and new collectors alike working in a wide range of mediums, she creates visual texture with a rich, adventurous color palette and expressive linear techniques. The artist grew up in Atlanta, frequently traveling and attending art openings, exhibits, and design shows, seeking inspiration from the work of both past and contemporary artists. She completed her education at the College of Charleston in 2007.

Harry Bertschmann was born in Basel, Switzerland, where his approach to painting was developed at the famous Basel School of Design in the late 1940s. A New Yorker since the 1960s, the artist has led a double life since arriving in the U.S. By day he has been an innovator in conceptual graphic design, with many of his commercial logos and packaging becoming iconic in American culture. By night he was a painter driven to push the boundaries of abstract expressionist painting.

Few abstract painters today can match Bertschmann’s extraordinary dynamism and versatility. Ultimately, his works have great staying power. There are no one-liners here: the kind of easy-to-grasp works exemplified by Andy Warhol’s assembly line screen prints. Rather, a Bertschmann painting compels the viewer to linger, and upon returning find invigoration anew.

Melinda Zox is an emerging Abstract Expressionist painter who studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York City under Frank Roth. Zox is the daughter of abstract painter Larry Zox—who played an essential role in the Color Field discourse of the 1960s and 1970s—and his artist wife Jean Glover Zox. Raised in the heart of the downtown New York City art scene, she considers her childhood “a continual lesson in the experience of art and creativity. Art, color and expression were part of our daily life and almost every conversation.”
