I am Stephen Kasle, the youngest son of Gertrude
Kasle. This web-site has been created to
sell works of art that were acquired
through the Gertrude Kasle Gallery, or
directly from artists promoted by my
mother, and to give some insight into
the wonderful experience that was
created by Gertrude Kasle.
of the art galleries carrying abstract art
(modern artwork) from famous artists is Gertrude
My mother started her gallery in Detroitís Fisher
Building in February of 1965. Her objective was to
introduce to Detroit some
of the most vital artists in the contemporary American art
scene. She also felt that it was important to support
the work of the artists whose work she valued. The greatest concentration of that work came from
artists associated with the Abstract Expressionist
Movement. Through the sixties and seventies, she dealt
directly with such artists as Larry Rivers, Grace Hartigan, Philip Guston, Robert Motherwell, William
DeKoning, Jack Tworkov, Helen Frankenthaler, Lowell
Nesbitt, Charles Pollack, Babe Shipiro, Robert Natkin,
Al Loving, Adolph Gotlieb, Oli Shivonen, Claes Oldenberg,
Gabriel Kohn, Julies Schmidt, Mike Todd, and Ed Giobbi.
She was also associated with other galleries and agents,
such as ULAE, to show and sell the works of Jim Dine,
James Rosenquist, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauchenberg,
Robert Indiana, and many other artists important to the
American art scene.
After she closed the Gallery
in 1976, she continued to
promote the work of young artists such as Elizabeth Murrey, Bill Jensen, Susan Rothenberg, and maintain
relations with the artists she had sold through the
Gallery years. She is still buying and promoting the
works of some of todayís new talent.
In 1996, my brother and I purchased the remaining art
and the name of the gallery from my mother. Thirty years
has passed since mother closed the gallery. It is time
for a reprise.
