"The Duchess Gallery" provides an incredible opportunity to reimagine the classics in our contemporary world. As the Pre-Raphaelite movement in visual arts in England in the 1800s was heavily inspired by the works of John Keats and John Ruskin, and their French counterparts such as poet Charles Baudelaire, new technology and engagement with digital culture presents the opportunity to evolve and connect visual art and literature with Cinematic Fine Art, upholding traditional aesthetics within contemporary culture.
"I intend to collaborate and feature artists from all over the world. I am especially interested in highlighting artists from impoverished nations, who may not otherwise have an opportunity to showcase their talents on a worldwide stage." Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York.
"Seeing the Duchess of York enter the digital art space is incredible validation for the medium. We couldn't be more excited to host this gorgeous, exciting collection from the Duchess of York on Nifty Gateway." Griffin Cock Foster, Founder Nifty Gateway
All gallery exhibits will be produced by Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York in association with BLKPRL Studios, and Candy Studios.
"We are thrilled to add The Duchess Gallery to our studio production slate, and for Sarah Ferguson, The Duchess of York to helm the curatorial responsibilities of the gallery. The Duchess is an art aficionado, best selling author, and advocate, and it is exciting to combine art, technology and storytelling to create Cinematic Fine Art in this burgeoning digital art space." Randy Levy, founder, BLKPRL Studios, LLC.
The Duchess Gallery provides an opportunity for Sarah, The Duchess of York who is deeply committed to empowering others, to not only collaborate with the top artists in the digital art space, but as well to discover, and spotlight emerging artistic talent worldwide" Brian Gold, Founder Candy Studios, LLC.
