Postmasters Gallery

Postmasters Gallery opened in East Village in December 1984, moved to Soho in 1989 and in September 1998 the gallery relocated again to a large ground floor space in Chelsea. Postmasters is the primary gallery for all the artists we represent.
During its 25 years Postmasters is showing young and established artists of all media. We actively seek new forms of creative expression and show them in a context of painting, sculpture and photography. Painters (Steve Mumford, David Diao), sculptors (David Herbert, Jack Risley), installation artists (Diana Cooper, Sally Smart), and artists for whom form follows conceptual ideas (Spencer Finch, Mary Kelly) are represented along the video and new media artists like Katarzyna Kozyra, Jennifer and Kevin McCoy, Omer Fast, Eddo Stern, Guy Ben-Ner, Anthony Goicolea, Natalie Jeremijenko, 0100101110101101.ORG (Eva and Franco Mattes), Wolfgang Staehle, and Kenneth Tin-Kin Hung. The artworks are generally content oriented, conceptually based, and - most importantly - reflective of our time.

David Herbert’s sculptures, video installations, paintings and drawings combine images of
pop culture and American history with a fearless use of materials. In earlier works Herbert
created his transformed versions of the Black Monolith from “2001: A Space Odyssey,”
Superman, Hindenburg Zeppelin, the Bates Hotel, Sleeping Beauty’s Castle and Starship
Enterprise rendered in fabric, plexiglas, aluminum, sculpey, paper pulp, cement, and
conduit pipe.
In the current show, Herbert’s second with Postmasters, he continues this exploration into
pop images and materials by focusing on the creations of illustrators and animators as a
