TYFA Spotlight in Mansion Global Article About Luxury Real Estate Fine Art Trends

Warhols and Other Fine Art Has Emerging Role in Luxury Real Estate // The benefit goes both ways: Art deals also get made as properties are sold
by Andy Battaglia
"Tim Yarger, who curated the collection in the Charles Park Beverly Hills property as well as others in a similar mode, described the process as discerning and involved. Under the aegis of his gallery, Timothy Yarger Fine Art, he teams with an interior designer, Christina Craemer of ARC54 Design, and conceives a collection with internal logic and a story to tell.
“We distinguish our service from staging,” Mr. Yarger said. “The service we’re providing is curated collections that have a language and substance related to art history and contemporary culture.”
For the Beverly Hills house, besides art from Warhol and Mr. Hirst, there is a series of luminescent sculptures using neon tubes, courtesy of Laddie John Dill, a West Coast pioneer of so-called “light and space” art, and other works owe to artists like Udo Nöger, a beguiling German painter, and Retna, a Los Angeles native who got his start with graffiti."

Shark Tank’s Kevin O’Leary Hosts Charitable Exhibition at TYFA
June 16 - 18, 2016
On June 16th - 18th, TYFA hosted a charitable exhibition supporting the Perry J. Cohen Foundation and Young Entrepreneurs, featuring photographic works by lifetime photographer Kevin O’Leary. Fellow contributors Bernie Taupin, Lori Hyland, and gallery artist Udo Nöger also generously donated artwork for acquisition.
Mr. O’Leary was in attendance along with Pamela Cohen and Nick Korniloff, Perry’s mother and stepfather, to speak about the mission of the Perry J. Cohen Foundation - which is to educate and teach the best practices of boating safety, the protection and preservation of marine and wildlife environments, as well as advocating Teenage Entrepreneurship.
Perry Cohen’s story made international news last year when he and a dear friend went missing at sea off the coast of Florida. The foundation created in his honor has partnered with Mr. O’Leary in an effort to carry on Perry’s legacy as a teenage entrepreneur and lover of the arts. All proceeds from the sales of O'Leary's photographs are donated to the Foundation (www.pjcf.org) in support of its mission. O’Leary's “Irreconcilable Images” photography has been exhibited at international contemporary art fairs and will continue to be shown throughout 2016. TYFA's Beverly Hills neighbor, Hilton/Hyland, was a co-sponsor of the exhibition and charitable event.
Timothy Yarger Speaks at Molly Barnes' Art Lecture Series In NYC
May 12, 2016
For more that 20 years Molly Barnes has hosted a monthly gathering of art talks, part salon/art history and lecture series featuring artists, collectors, dealers, and curators.
On May 12th, she invited Tim to share stories about his career and to discuss influences and trends in the art market. We had a wonderful time and delighted with journalist Anthony Liversidge. Read his comments about the talk on his blog, Attend NYC:
"If there is one art gallery owner/dealer one would choose to represent one’s adventures in making art, it would be Tim Yarger, judging from his presentation this day at Molly Barnes’ famous bicoastal lunchtime salon at the Roger Smith. Not only was his portfolio consistently replete with artists operating at the highest level, from Sam Francis and Louise Nevelson to Udo Noger and Carole Feuerman, but why they might choose to cooperate with Yarger’s informed enthusiasm and reassuringly perceptive judgment in marketing their work in Los Angeles and around the world was pretty clear too – he himself is as individual in seeking self expression as any of his charges, and finds his work despite its management demands as much an adventure in its own way as when he first took it up, having decided that his position as lead trumpet in a symphony orchestra as well as in jazz was never going to match Dizzy Gillespie or Chet Baker. Typical was one of his first initiatives suggesting the first contemporary art exhibition in Thailand in 1995 where he had to carry 45 precious Picasso prints in the plane overhead bin into Bangkok and was rewarded by selling all of them but one. Clearly this is a man who will continue to dominate the Los Angeles scene as it explodes into the 100,000 square foot gallery level."
