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.

Shortly after my review of Amy Bennett's exhibition at Miles McEnery Gallery appeared on the Hyperallergic Weekend, I got an email from Mollye Miller, who, I later learned, is a photographer and poet living in Baltimore. In fact, she and I were published in the same little magazine, Prelude, edited by Stu Watson, but not in the same issue. But all...
For more than a decade, Amy Bennett has been building a loyal following for her highly detailed views of a fictional world that resembles our own. She is an observational painter who works from models that she painstakingly constructs. For one group of paintings, Bennett transformed an 8-foot-square of Styrofoam into a lush green landscape that...
There have always been multiple entry points for viewers to come to terms with John Sonsini's bravura portraits of single or multiple male subjects, most of whom are Mexican day laborers, and 'the age of Trump' has unexpectedly provided us with yet another.

Le peintre, né en 1977 en Israël, a fréquenté aussi bien la Parsons The New School for Design de New York que l’École d’art de Pont-Aven en France. En ressortent une galerie d’images aux formes géométriques et colorées, de larges mosaïques où les couches épaisses de...
