Evolving out of Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe, the Miles McEnery Gallery in New York promotes the work of contemporary artists—both abstract and representational—along with iconic mid-century pioneers of American Abstraction.Read More
Emerging in the wake of the venerable André Emmerich Gallery’s close, its principals, along with Miles McEnery, founded the gallery in 1999 and was housed on 41 East 57th Street in the iconic Art Deco Fuller Building. With an emphasis on post-war American art, including Color-Field Painting, Hard-Edge Painting and Abstract Expressionism, the gallery held major exhibitions of pioneering artists such as Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Motherwell, Morris Louis, Kenneth Noland and Hans Hofmann. Combining art of the past and present, the gallery has specialised in not only the sale of pivotal post-war artists, but also promoting seminal contemporary artists.
In 2001 the gallery became a member of the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA), a prestigious membership that reflects the gallery’s focus on connoisseurship, scholarship and the highest curatorial standards. Its recent expansion has led to two gallery spaces in Chelsea located on 520 West 21st Street and 525 West 22nd Street.
Miles McEnery Gallery exhibits and represents a comprehensive range of international artists and estates, including Wolf Kahn, Patrick Wilson, Inka Essenhigh, Beverly Fishman, April Gornik and Markus Linnenbrink. The gallery represents the estates of Gene Davis, Hans Hofmann and Esteban Vicente. The gallery’s exhibition program includes paintings, drawings and sculpture and is heralded for its simplicity and nuanced recording of the artist's consciousness, ranging from Michael Reafsnyder’s colourful abstractions to Bo Bartlett’s figurative and epic narratives.
Exhibitions and fairs
Miles McEnery Gallery shows artists annually at art fairs including EXPO Chicago; ADAA Art Show, New York; Art Basel Miami Beach; Taipei Dangdai and Zona Maco in Mexico City. Miles McEnery Gallery has contributed to shaping international perspectives on post-war American art through its comprehensive publications program. Since the gallery’s inception, it has published extensive monographs, as well as solo and group exhibition catalogues for its roster of over forty living artists.
