Anita Kunz Solo Show – Italy
Gallery House artist, Anita Kunz and Canadian darling is opening a solo show titled “ The Bestiary” which is scheduled alongside fellow Ray Caesar solo show “The Trouble with Angels” for an opening reception on February 14, 2014 at 7:00 pm for the public reception at the Dorothy Circus Gallery Rome, Italy with both artists in attendance.
Anita Kunz has been widely published for over three decades on an international platform. Kunz’s paintings have been concerned with political systems, social justice and the human relationship to nature. Her newer body of work concerns the animal kingdom and and how we relate to and live within it. The Bestiary is a special curated exhibition showcasing a comprehensive exploration of beasts both found in rural and city locations and those fantastical mythical creatures that are only discovered in the land of Kunz. She believes that since we share an enormous amount of genetic material with other creatures and by comparing and contrasting, we can begin to understand our very nature.
Anita is highly collected in many institutions these include the permanent collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Rome; Norman Rockwell Museum and showcased in several art fairs across the UK and more. She has received the Order of Canada, her country’s highest civilian honour and was the first Canadian and the first woman to have a show of her work at the Library of Congress in Washington. She has also recently received the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal of Honour.

Cat Art Show LA Announced
On Saturday, January 25th, 2014, CAT ART SHOW LOS ANGELES will debut with over 50 globally recognized artists, including Tracey Emin, Shepard Fairey, Jonathan Yeo, Ray Caesar, and Anita Kunz.
CAT ART SHOW LOS ANGELES is both a meditation and a celebration of the feline form. This exhibition goes beyond heralding felines as domesticated companion, and instead explores their role as muse and inspiration. Aloof one moment and adoring the next, their behavior alone is a constant source of artistic fodder destined for reinterpretation. Then there is their adroit physicality; be it lounging languorously across our still unread newspaper, or their instinctive predatory sensibilities.

Truth, Light & Matter – Oct 3rd Annual Exhibit in Toronto Canada
Our Annual exhibition opened on October 3, 2013 and continues until November 23, 2013 with hours and appointments listed under the Contact section. It’s been an incredible year –at Gallery House we are currently unlike other existing entities in the art world. We only cater to senior and high end established artists to help grow and foster their work.
Sometimes I feel as if the concept is so new it is difficult to clearly understand what this actually means. We are different because we ensure constant prominence and exhibition is taking place internationally as Gallery House deliberately partners with commercial galleries, institutions and special projects to exhibit the artists works. We manage all the nitty gritty details from strategic planning, communication, negotiation, media/reproduction, contracts, appraisal, insurance, shipping, coordination from concept to exhibition to collection of funds and return. Together with the artists we handle their inventory distribution and ensure rotation of the works of art. As such, the artist is alleviated from the above and can focus on creating their best works.
The venture was formed after working in the fine art world for over 12 years in institutions, as a consultant, commercial galleries and art fairs. Fine arts is a passion of mine and Gallery House over the few years has garnered attention from some of the top institutions including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, US and Bristol Arts Museum, England and numerous partnered galleries in over 8 countries and growing.
Gallery House means we value our artists and our passion inspries us to bring you the best work while insuring the integrity of the artists rights are intact.
Thank you for believing and supporting us.

Anita Kunz covered by Tracey Paleo, Gia On the Move
Some time ago, artist Anita Kunz managed by Gallery House, Toronto Canada, appeared on GOTMLA. Her highly raw and sexual rendition of Red Riding Hood galloping atop a blood thirsty wolf was certainly an attention getter. And I’ve been intrigued ever since with this woman who has been creating provocative paintings and cover art for print magazines like Time, The New Yorker, Fortune and Rolling Stone for decades as well as portraiture for iconic celebrities. I wanted to discover more. Below is Anita’s personal take on her contributions to the art world and a few bits more…
