NEW YORK, N.Y.- David Findlay Jr Gallery
has just moved to a new and larger location at the 724 Fifth Avenue gallery building (immediately south of 57th Street). The gallery occupies the entire 8th floor which previously housed the legendary Grace Borgenicht Gallery and more recently, D.C. Moore Gallery. Among the other galleries located at 724 Fifth Ave. are Tibor de Nagy Gallery, Babcock Galleries and Maxwell Davidson Gallery.
The new location more than doubles the exhibition area of our previous gallery, states owner David Findlay Jr. Coincidentally, our move is also a return home for our gallery. In the 1940s my father moved the Findlay Gallery from Kansas City, Missouri, to New York City and then to 724 Fifth Avenue to the very same 8th floor, where he stayed for about 10 years. History to the side, we have selected this new gallery with its two exhibition areas and larger space to offer our clients an expanded exhibition program.
The inaugural exhibition will be EAST END: Artists of the Hamptons and will include the 1950s and 60s work of Herman Cherry, John Ferren, Ibram Lassaw, Kyle Morris, John Opper, Alfonso Ossorio, Philip Pavia, Robert Richenburg and David Slivka. An announcement, with an essay written by Helen Harrison, Director of the Pollock Krasner House, will be available.
A second exhibition, Walter Kuhlman: Images from the West, will also be on view. This exhibition focuses on the Bay Area artists mysterious and powerful figurative monotypes from the 1980s and 90s.
