Featuring ten artists for the gallery's 10th anniversary, including newcomers Caryn Azoff, Margaret Fitzgerald, Vivian Kahra, Jim Napierala and Liang Qunfeng; and long-time SEFA artists Amber George, Francie Hester, Kentaro Hiramatsu, Kim Luttrell and Deirdre O'Connell.
Two X Five marks the tenth anniversary of Susan Eley Fine Art, established in 2006. To celebrate this milestone, we are featuring ten artists—five established and five first time exhibitors with the Gallery. Artists on view are newcomers Caryn Azoff, Margaret Fitzgerald, Vivian Kahra, Jim Napierala and Liang Qunfeng; and long-time exhibitors Deirdre O’Connell, Amber George, Francie Hester, Kentaro Hiramatsu and Kim Luttrell.
The artist selection demonstrates our intent to both look back at our curatorial foundation and to look forward to future programmatic directions. Installed side by side, the paintings on view reflect the breadth and variety of the Gallery’s overall mission to exhibit a diverse range of the best of abstract and representational art being made today.
Brief History of the Gallery From 2006 to 2008 Eley operated the Gallery out of her home on the ground floor of an Upper West Side townhouse. After a year and a half of successful exhibitions and critical acclaim, a floor opened in the building and Eley moved the Gallery upstairs. In the past ten years, the Gallery has mounted 57 on-site solo and group exhibitions; 17 off-site exhibitions and public installations in offices, parks, plazas, museums and restaurants; organized numerous panel discussions, collector talks and literary salons; participated in 16 art fairs in New York City, Houston, Miami, Silicon Valley and Toronto; and published 14 artist catalogues.
