The newest work from nearly 100 artists and designers will be on display to home and gift manufacturers at a new forum known as The Licensing Gallery, which debuts at the winter 2010 edition of the New York International Gift Fair. Participants in this new forum bring unique perspectives derived from their varied professional backgrounds, from fine artists specializing in landscapes, watercolors, and collage, to commercial photography, advertising, and theater production. Common among them is their tremendous creativity and ability to form partnerships with manufacturers to develop top-selling products. Art and design styles range from graphic, retro, abstract and architectural, to botanical, painterly and whimsical, the art is ideal for most product categories, including bedding, home furnishings, tabletop, floor coverings, apparel, giftware, stationery and more. Confirmed participants include: Andrea Brooks Studio, Artists of Kolea Licensing Group, Cinnamon Joe Studio LLC, Creative Connection Inc., Inspire by Design Ltd, Johansen Newman, OPR, Pink Light Design, Studio Voltaire, T. Scot, and Wild Apple Licensing. “This is the ideal time and place for NYIGF exhibitors, as well as non-exhibiting manufacturers and other product developers to procure the latest artwork from a select group of talented artists and designers.” said Dorothy Belshaw, NYIGF Director and GLM Senior Vice President. “From the painterly florals of Andrea Brooks Studio to the whimsical juvenile prints from Cinnamon Joe Studio, these designers offer a breadth of art styles with limitless applications for gift, home and lifestyle products." Visitors may view designs from Sunday, January 31, through Wednesday, February 3, 2010, at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. The Gallery will be located on the Level One exhibit floor.
