About this title


Sleeping with Dogs is the title of the new memoir by internationally-known gallerist and philanthropist, Riva Yares. The reason for this title becomes apparent as we travel with Yares through her fascinating life. She lives on the edge, searching for artistic perfection and engaged in personal intrigue. Having spent her childhood in fear of bombing on the volatile stage of the Isreali war, she emerged from the ruins to become a leading patron of the arts dispelling destruction and embracing creation. Yares s steady determination and fearlessness combined with a perceptive and innate understanding of what great art is, have led her to the highest pinnacle of success. She tells her story with lively humor and succinct honesty. The book is divided into three sections. The first vividly relates her coming of age in the Isreali underground against the backdrop of war. The second section is the story of coming to America. The third is about the world of art. Readers will be enthralled by her account of an unparalleled journey through life here and beyond.

Riva Yares is the owner and director of the Riva Yares Galleries in Scottsdale, Arizona and Santa Fe, New Mexico. She has curated major exhibitions for artists Arman, Milton Avery, Hans Hofmann, Yves Klein, Morris Louis, Roberto Matta, Jules Olitski, Jesus Soto, among others. Besides being the quintessential art dealer, author, and filmmaker, she is further immersed within the entire spectrum of the arts including theatre, opera, music, and literature. The Riva Yares Foundation is devoted to underwriting museum exhibitions, film restoration, concerts, publishing, and theatrical performances. Yares s philanthropic contributions are concentrated on the AIDS epidemic, including funding for the care of orphaned children living with HIV/AIDS in India.
