Valton Tyler has had a long and distinguished career as a printer and painter. His work is engaging, occasionally whimsical, and always thought provoking. Valton's exhibition credentials which span over 40 years included 14 print shows, 49 painting exhibitions, 24 articles and citations in art publications, several awards, representation in over 13 public collections., and literally part of way too many private collections to count. In short we are excited to bring together tribal art from around the world to be exhibited in this venue with Valton Tyler's work.
For the fine arts, the best-known names are Salvador Dali, the Italian Giorgio de Chirico with his strange and eerie town views, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Joan Miro, Yves Tanguy, Rene Margritte and the Russian Marc Chagall. " It should be noted that Andre Breton 's collection of almost 5000 works of art was auctioned off by CalmesCohen auction house in a series of sales in April 2003 in Paris. His extensive tribal art collection ranged from Eskimo masks to Hopi kachinas and from naturalistic to abstract works.
