Juror Philipp Eirich, Cerbera Gallery, gallery owner, curator,
Philipp was chosen as juror because of his love for photography, his knowledge of art and his high standing in the art community, locally, nationally and internationally.
Philipp Eirich was born in Wurzburg, Germany. He came to the United States in his early twenties and lived in Chicago for 20 years before moving to Kansas City. He now owns and runs Cerbera Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery located at the heart of Kansas City’s Crossroads Art District. The gallery features an array of works by both renowned and emerging artists, primarily focusing in the fields of ceramics, limited editions, painting and photography. Cerbera Gallery has its origins in the 2016 NCECA, National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts, conference in Kansas City. Eirich set up a space intended as a pop-up gallery for the conference. He gathered works from ceramicists throughout the United States, combining them with contemporary visual art works. The venture was a success, with a complete sell-out. Eirich chose to keep the space open and it has grown, due in part to Eirich’s unconventional curatorial style. He is known for exhibiting well-known artists next to emerging artists at price levels attracting both the serious collector and occasional art buyer all displayed in a contemporary salon-type setting. Eirich also takes pride in showcasing many local artists, in addition to nationally and internationally renowned works; both from artists he represents and artists who are part of his private collection.
Mediums represented range from drawings and paintings to prints and photography and as well as sculptural and functional ceramics. Artist on his roster include Peter Voulkos, Jennifer Wolf, Terry Dixon, Greg Miller, Guenther Uecker, Hans Hartung, Ken Price, Richard Serra, Joan Hernandez Pijuan, Otto Piene, Akio Takamori, Christo, Josef Albers, Julio Le Parc, Robert Motherwell, Victor Vasarely, Laura Letinsky, Thomas Florschuetz , Gregory Crewdson, Peter Wegner, Anna Minnick, Kelly Ludwig, Nicolas Dhervillers, Ken Price, Richard Notkin, Ruth Duckworth, Melanie Sherman, Kyungmin Park, Kwok-Pong “Bobby Tso”, Thomas Brinkmann, Hans Habeger, Miro just to name a few.
