The Sculpture Objects Functional Art and Design (SOFA) Fair in Chicago is the premier gallery-presented art fair dedicated to three-dimensional art and design. On par with Art Basel and TEFAF Maastricht, SOFA is produced by Clarion Events.
Critically acclaimed and continuously running since 1993, what distinguishes SOFA from other top art events is its focus on three-dimensional artworks that cross the boundaries of fine art, decorative art and design. SOFA is noted for its exceptional presentation, with an elite selection of international dealers presenting for sale one-of-a-kind masterworks in handsome, custom-designed gallery exhibits
It was a great pleasure to be a part of SOFA 2019 and be represented by Maria Elena Kravetz Gallery. The entire event was energized by thoughtful conversation and inspiration from visitors of my art display.
‘Between Dreams and Reality.’ Presented by Artists United, a group of six artists showcasing representational art that lies between realism and highly imaginative dream-like abstracts and figurative abstracts.

“When my husband and I were conducting renovations in our living room in newly bought house 10 years ago I discovered what most people try to find their entire lives – my true meaning and purpose. Our project consisted of a wall filled with small wooden chunks assembled into a playful mosaic, which turned out to be a true masterpiece. And I suddenly realized I can’t stop doing this. I absolutely fall in love with wood. I just transformed it in smaller pieces which could be easily moved around and could be hanged in any other walls. Ever since that moment…”
Seeking a harmonious life with feng shui? Think of adding art piece, that designed and created with elements of feng shui in mind. It will bring harmony and happiness into your space, energize your environment and create a smooth flow of chi.
The ancient Chinese practice of using the flow of “energies” in the home to create harmony and good health, is a technique, that reinforces positive energy and creates a space of welcoming warmth and balanced home. Good feng shui means being in harmony with nature, your environment, your mind, and your soul.
We are all searching for something beyond functionality. Feng shui design favors artwork and sculptural pieces, that are centered around positive energy.
Make a statement in your living space! Highly distinctive contemporary wood art will add a character and the element of nature while making an incredible feature and a focal point.
Just because a tree dies doesn’t mean we have to discard it! Think of ways that you can give your tree a new life in your home and garden if it has sentimental meaning for you.
The day we noticed our majestic Crabapple Tree was gone we were devastated. That particular tree was the center of life for many years. The tree had to come down and we wanted to do it in a way that would honour the tree and honour the traditions of the tree.
It didn’t seem right to just cut this special tree down and chip it or use it for firewood. We thought we could treat it better. That was a family project. And one day a sad-looking dead tree turned into the bright and colorful full of life birdy village.
