FOG and Untitled Fairs Bring Out Dealers, Collectors in San Francisco

January 22, 2019

"As San Francisco weathered two very minor earthquakes and braced against voracious rain that forecasters had classified as an “atmospheric river,” two art fairs in the city—FOG Design+Art and Untitled—went about their business of opening with nothing but signs of positivity in sight. The older, more established FOG and the newer upstart Untitled (a West Coast satellite of a fair initiated in Miami) offered different vibes but together courted collectors and curiosity-seekers to a Bay Area art scene that rose to the occasion for both."

Edward Cella Art & Architecture was thrilled to participate in another very successful year at FOG fair in San Francisco.

Photographer in residence: Pedro E. Guerrero’s architectural images of mid-century New Canaan are on view

October 29, 2018 - Christina Hennessy

As Susan Guerrero tells it, her parents’ desire to move their growing family out of New York City and into the suburbs brought them to New Canaan in 1951, where for a sum of $10,000 — which was all they could afford — they found a two-acre spot upon which to put down roots.

Review: Pedro Guerrero at the New Canaan Historical Society

October 29, 2018 - Christina Hennessy

"Where the family settled was an important part of its story. But for Pedro E. Guerrero, this rural burb and its surrounding bedroom communities had a profound impact on his artistic legacy. In his proverbial backyard, a handful of architects was creating a mid-century modern look that came to define a golden era in American architecture. Bold and innovative, it shaped homes, churches, offices, ice rinks and apartment complexes.

Guerrero captured it all through the lens of his camera and brought it to the world.

The intersection between the personal and professional life of Pedro E. Guerrero can be traversed through Dec. 9 at the New Canaan Historical Society, which is presenting the exhibition “Pedro E. Guerrero: The Photographer of Mid-Century New Canaan,” along with Edward Cella Art and Architecture, the Los Angeles gallery that represents Guerrero’s estate."
