Long-Sharp Gallery, the newest extension of ModernMasters Fine Art, has made its permanent home in the Conrad Indianapolis luxury hotel. The gallery features works from Picasso to Pop, with a primary focus on works by some of the best known names in modern and contemporary art, including: Picasso, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Indiana, Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Robert Motherwell, Helen Frankenthaler, Salvador Dali, Joan Miro, John (Crash) Matos, Russell Young, and William John Kennedy.
Since opening in 2005, Modern Masters Fine Art has established an enviable reputation in the international print market, selling to private collectors, dealers, galleries, corporations and museums worldwide. Long-Sharp works directly with the foundations and archives of artists such as Haring and Dali to ensure that all works are authentic. ModernMasters features and maintains a 100% owned inventory of approximately 500 master works. Works exhibited at Long-Sharp Gallery will be selected from this inventory. Long-Sharp is also a recognized IFAA (International Fine Art Appraisers) fine art appraiser.
The newest Indianapolis gallery has selected the city's oldest framer, Frame Designs (Broadripple and Carmel), to serve as the exclusive framer for all of the works exhibited. As fine art collectors, Rhonda Long-Sharp and husband Dr. Scott Sharp have patronized Frame Designs and its sister company Editions Limited Gallery for almost 2 decades. Since opening ModernMasters, Long-Sharp has used Frame Designs' services to frame hundreds upon hundreds of works by Picasso, Warhol, and others. With the opening of Long-Sharp Gallery, that relationship will be strengthened further.
Long-Sharp Gallery is accessible from The Conrad Lobby and from its separate entrance on Illinois Street. Gallery hours are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 12PM - 3PM or by appointment. Long-Sharp Gallery is accessible to guests of Conrad Indianapolis 24/7. For more information, please visit Long-Sharp Gallery
