Garth Greenan Gallery

About the gallery:

Garth Greenan Gallery is committed to mounting important exhibitions and maintaining a high standard of integrity and connoisseurship. It champions the work of established artists whose work deserves greater recognition, many of whom emerged during the 1960s and 1970s. By re-presenting and re-contextualizing their work, the gallery questions the prevailing narrative of contemporary art history and encourages its revision.

Currently, Garth Greenan Gallery represents 19 artists of different generations. The gallery handles works in a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, drawing, and printmaking. Each year, the gallery presents seven exhibitions, many of which are accompanied by publications.
