In Ernest Hemingway's memoir about his early years as a journalist in Paris, he described his experience in the City of Light as being a "moveable feast...wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you."

Exceptional art truly is a feast; an indulgence of the senses that remains in one's mind long after the first experience. A painting, sculpture, print or drawing is itself a movable feast, an experience of a particular, resonant moment that one can hang on the wall and make their own. With this concept in mind, Collier West embarks on an exciting expansion, the opening of CW Gallery, and our first opening show, A Moveable Feast, featuring the diverse works of 10 exceptionally talented artists that exemplify not only the high level of technical prowess Collier West has supported from the beginning, but an investigation of deeper themes and evocative concepts that engage the viewer. Artists Jessica Augier, Aliene de Souza Howell, Guno Park, Nikki Vail, Shauna Finn, Robert Goldstrom, Amanda Scuglia, Nicolas V. Sanchez, Antonio Massarutto, and Tyler Vouros all lend their multi-disciplinary talents to the first of many unforgettable experiences at CW Gallery, an experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
