Rye Artist Harper Showcased in FT in Advance of January 10th Rye Art Center Auction

Harper

Just weeks before the Rye Arts Center auctions a first time sale of an Irving Harper art work, the Financial Times has showcased the Rye artist:

Harper House

"Harper’s preference for solitude isn’t simply the result of old age. The idea of peace and quiet drew Harper, his late wife Belle and daughter Elizabeth, to the three-storey house in Rye, a leafy commuter town about 30 miles north of Manhattan. “The house was called ‘Hidden House’ when I came and looked at it in 1954,” he says. “And it was definitely hard to find. I thought, ‘I’d love to be hard to find,’ so I bought it. And I’ve never regretted it.”"

The FT piece, like an earlier one in The New York Times, is expansive.

The Rye Arts Center (RAC) has extended the Irving Harper show until January 24th. On January 10th, RAC will host a cocktail party and live auction for the first time sale of an Irving Harper sculpture.
