Luttrell is going to Exhibit Artexpo at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City
New York (PRWEB) March 4, 2005 - After 20 years a group of Kentucky high school friends came together to invest in and promote friend and artist, Kim Luttrell. As a result, Luttrell has launched her new company, Luttrell Fine Art, LLC,and is going to exhibit her work this weekend at the International Artexpo at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City on March 3-6, 2005. Art expo jump-started the careers of some of the finest American artists of the 20th Century, one of them being Andy Warhol. Luttrell will be at booth #2812 throughout the show.
Luttrell after conducting research with various artist, decided to set up suitable promotional tools.
Wilson read an article that appeared on June 1, 2004, in The Wall Street Journal about a patent attorney who won the World Series of Poker. This savvy poker player funded his entry fee by selling 'shares' of his stake in the tournament. After his big win, investors were paid a percentage of his winnings. Wilson was inspired that she could establish something similar for Luttrell to exhibit at the Artexpo.
'I have realized that many people come in and out of your life and the people you want around you are those you can trust,' said Luttrell. 'I am excited about taking my work more broadly worldwide with the help and support of those most true to me.'
Luttrell's body of work includes painted works on paper mounted to canvas that presents an appearance of motion.
Additionally each section within the piece occasionally reveals an isolated scene. Luttrell has also produced labor intensive woven paintings that are a tribute to the handicraft and age-old tradition of weaving used by early 20th century settlement workers from her home state of Kentucky. Along with these latest works, are her abstract forms using paint chips which hold the viewer's attention by creating shapely waves of infinitesimal colors and compelling intensity.
Luttrell recently developed a series of etchings, photo-etchings, lithographs and serigraphs at the famed Arts Students League in New York to exhibit at the Artexpo. She will be premiering her works on giclee prints as well.
In 1991 Luttrell moved to New York with $600 and a dream Once in New York, Luttrell evolved into a full-time career of creating original mixed-media art and began by selling her art on the streets of Manhattan neighborhoods to build her notable clientele. Since 1998, Luttrell has achieved numerous solo and group shows throughout New York that has generated a notable following; selling her work for as much as $32,000.
'For an artist, it takes a little more determination to get to the places they want to go,' says Luttrell.
Her works are displayed in corporate and private collections throughout the U.S., Holland, Israel, Australia, Argentina, England, Brazil, China, Japan and Republic of Guinea and hang among other well-known artists such as Dali, Picasso, Winston Churchill and Anthony Quinn. Notable collectors range from Anna Strasberg, widow of renowned actor and teacher, Lee Strasberg, of the Theatre Institute in New York and California to Kentucky's own Academy Award winning, Patricia Neal. Luttrell has participated in solo and group shows in New York and was a featured artist in a national publication show house, the House & Garden Havemeyer Mansion in New Jersey. An Australian filmmaker also made Luttrell the topic of an independent documentary which has been recently added to the permanent archives of the Library and Research Center of the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C.
