Summer Wheat recipient of the 2016 NADA Artadia Award

Congratulations to Summer Wheat for receiving the 2016 NADA Artadia Award


"The NADA New York art fair announced that the Brooklyn-based artist Summer Wheat has won the 2016 NADA Artadia Award, given to one artist whose work was exhibited at the fair, and selected by Ian Alteveer of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Studio Museum in Harlem’s Amanda Hunt. Wheat will receive an unrestricted gift of $5,000.


In a joint statement, Alteveer and Hunt said: “Selecting the 2016 NADA Artadia Awardee has been a great experience that made us look at the fair with a different purpose. We were intrigued by Summer Wheat’s process and use of material, pushing the boundaries of acrylic paint to create works that are compelling and visceral, and are thrilled that the award goes directly to the artist in Artadia’s great tradition.”
