AUREUS Contemporary is a gallery focused on emerging and unrecognized established artists demonstrating a high level of craftsmanship and original ideas. Since its inception in 2008, AUREUS has worked with a select handful of artists. Through a periodic group consensus a select group of artists are actively chosen and their work encouraged through various means.
AUREUS Contemporary was devised as a response to a burgeoning market for contemporary art that often overlooked artists of profound capabilities at the expense of expedient hype and fashionable taste. The group wished to create a venue where many artists could be equally considered that were not being presented in other areas. It is agreed that the best way to do this would be to maintain a fluid presence in the art world, working in various locations and cities, and via art fairs, pop-up exhibitions, and special collaborations. All of this is dependant on circumstances and, of course, the artist(s) being worked with.
AUREUS Contemporary’s mission is to seek out artists from a broad range of locations and to present their work without regard for a certain location or scheduled time line. In short, the gallery creates shows around an artist, or artists, with the express intention of presenting their work to a larger audience of people.
AUREUS Contemporary intends to simply seek out great art by talented emerging artists – particularly in the fields of painting, sculpture, and photography – and present them to a wider audience of fellow collectors, curators, gallerists, critics, and general visitors.
