Anita Shapolsky Gallery

Every art gallery has its own history and develops in its own special way.

Anita Shapolsky Gallery opened in a pristine, large, minimal space in Soho in 1982 with a collection of American Abstract Art from the 50’s. By 1989 Latin American Artist exhibitions were also included in her schedule.

In 1997 the Anita Shapolsky Gallery moved to a Brownstone house in the Upper East Side of Manhattan and established an Art Foundation in a large church in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania.

The exhibits create something that you can enter, that attracts your gaze and confronts you, not something like an icon.

You are not only playing the role of a passive v... [ Read all ]

Seymour Boardman’s work emerged from the period of dark, brooding colors,
and calligraphic brushwork that later evolved into saturated colors and exploration to the
exterior of the canvas. He gradually simplified all of the aspects of his work until only
straight lines and two or three areas of flat sometimes somber, tones remained. His work
reduced complicated image to its essence through a simple play with basic color planes
and lines that pierce, bend and twist within the negative space.
