Keep up with your favorite—or soon to be favorite—galleries on Artsy. Here’s five we think you might love:

1. Pearl Lam Galleries

Pearl Lam Galleries has been dedicated to promoting Chinese contemporary artists and stimulating cross-cultural dialogue through the presentation of major exhibitions by international artists. Browse their current show, “Deja Disparu,” to find the artist Ho Siu-Kee as he ponders (and challenges) gravity while suspended upside down inside a circular, steel apparatus.  

2. Pace Gallery

Pace is a leading contemporary art gallery representing many of the most significant international artists and estates of the 20th and 21st centuries. Find work from their current show, “Image and Abstraction,” and view a bolt of lightning captured as only possible at the hand of Hiroshi Sugimoto. The exhibition closes today, but look for work from Pace in our (fast-approaching) coverage of ArtRio on Artsy.

3. R 20th Century Gallery

R 20th Century represents a group of historical & contemporary designers whose work is among the most innovative and finely crafted of their time. Take a tour through their past exhibitions—you’ll find Kelly Behun Studio’s mirror-top cocktail table, coyly requesting your hand.

4. Leila Heller Gallery

Located in Chelsea’s gallery district, Leila Heller promotes a cutting-edge program of international contemporary, emerging, and mid-career artists. View the gallery’s booth from Masterpiece London, including work by Iranian artist Farideh Lashai, whose Catching the Moon explores the interplay between the real and the imagined with sound and animation she has projected into a well of water.

5. Hollis Taggart Galleries

For more than 35 years, Hollis Taggart Galleries has specialized in American art of the 19th & 20th centuries, particularly that of Abstract Expressionism and Post-War art. Take a look back to The Armory Show 2013, where the gallery showed work by Pablo Atchugarry, an artist known for his delicately carved marble sculptures like Viaje a traves de la luz, meaning “travel through the light”.
