Eric Firestone Gallery
Eric Firestone is a gallery in East Hampton. It has been there for three years now. Eric Firestone is the man behind the gallery. He grew up in Miami went to University of Arizona for college and basically didn't leave for the next twenty years where he established himself in the art world. He decided it was time to make his mark on the east coast about three years ago and set up shop in East Hampton although certainly works with people in the city too. The piece above is from Gregory Johnston.
Super smart guy who has a great eye and a creative bend. I took the tour last week. We started talking and before I knew it we were down in the basement seeing the other artists he represents including the next show that is going up on August 11th. The piece above is by Eric Cahan, we own one a piece of his work.
Made of candy rings. Over time they drip down and then you are left with empty candy rings with drips on the floor. Getting a trough for it to hang on would make the most sense and then spray it with something to insure it doesn't fall apart.
Love the collection of artists that he represents. I am more into the emerging artists than the emerged and Eric has a good balance.
