"While I have operated Helicline Fine Art since 2008, my life-long work has been, and continues to be, running a Times Square communications firm. From day one of my professional life, I have been working in entertainment, primarily the theatre, selling two hours of magic in a dark room. Some of these artists were friends, even clients. Their work has great significance to me, and I believe it will resonate deeply with those who love entertainment and the arts. These works are fine art." said Keith Sherman, proprietor of the gallery.

Artworks are available at a wide price range for beginning as well as established collectors who love all things entertainment.

The title of the exhibition, "You'll Be Swell! You'll Be Great!" is a song lyric from arguably the greatest musical ever written, GYPSY, by Jule Styne, Arthur Laurents and Stephen Sondheim.

Helicline Fine Art is. private art gallery specializing in modernism, American scene, social realism, mural studies, industrial landscapes, regionalism, abstraction and more. The artworks on the site represent a sampling of available works.
