The Chai Gallery of Fine Arts in Sandy Springs is gearing up for a three-day estate sale Aug. 25, 26 and 27 by combining its own discounted inventory with the collections of local residents who want to sell on consignment any art they inherited, no longer want or have no room for.

Gallery owner Mark Jaffe (no relation to me) wants to see your pieces to determine their salability and what prices you want to get for them.

“I plan to sell items at below-gallery and -appraisal prices. Judaica is fine, but it doesn’t have to be,” Jaffe said. “Bring it by or contact me to discuss your treasures. We will have the full gambit: Miro, Chagall, Peter Max, and some surprises like Mordechai Rosenstein and Anatole Krasnyansky.”

French artist Linda Le Kinff likes to paint on wood, as with “Rehearsal II.”

Also for sale are works by French artist Linda Le Kinff, who paints on wood pallets, such as her colorful “Rehearsal II.”

One of the most spectacular pieces is “Accordions and Horns” by Krasnyansky, a Ukrainian-born architect and Hollywood set designer. It is a beautifully framed watercolor on rice paper that is a tribute to the rock group Kiss.

“It’s also about masks,” Jaffe said. “Everyone wears them in our various roles on and off stage.”

The Chai Gallery, at 5975 Roswell Road, Suite E-355, is in the shopping center at the intersection of Roswell and Hammond Drive next to Cafe Sunflower. Jaffe can be reached at 770-289-0114 or mark@chaifineart.com.
