Two former Fuller Building dealers collaborate opening joint gallery space in Chelsea
The gallery space is one of collaboration, not consolidation.

NEW YORK, NY.- Jacquie Littlejohn of Littlejohn Contemporary, a dealer since 1984 with a gallery in SoHo in the 80s and The Fuller Building in the 1990s; and Elizabeth K Garvey, former Co-Director of Schmidt-Bingham Gallery (Fuller Building) in the 1990s, Principal of EKG Art Advisory, and co-founder of Garvey Simon Art Access have joined forces and are exhibiting together at Suite 207: 547 West 27th Street in Chelsea.

The gallery space is one of collaboration, not consolidation. The two dealers will alternate use of the exhibition space but mingle their inventory in the back viewing room / office area and in group shows and art fairs.

Although other dealers have worked with shared spaces, mounting exhibitions concurrently within the same space (as did Michael Foley and Sasha Wolf in the same building) - the model Littlejohn and Garvey are using for this collaborative venture is seemingly unprecedented in Chelsea.

After leaving the Fuller Building, Garvey, a private art advisor and dealer for the last 12 years, became a client of Littlejohn in her role as consultant for a variety of private clients. The two began speaking about a collaborative venture in 2010 when Garvey took several of Annette Davidek’s paintings on consignment from Littlejohn for the temporary gallery Garvey|Simon opened outside Indianapolis, Indiana from 2010-11.

The dealers took occupancy at 547 West 27th Street, Suite 207, New York , NY 10001 in the Spring of 2012 and held a couple of exhibitions while they tested the space and worked out logistics. Fall of 2012 will be their primary debut season with an exhibition of Timothy Hawkesworth and Peter Bynum (Littlejohn) and Julia Randall (Garvey Simon).

Littlejohn Contemporary specializes in contemporary art, with an emphasis on painting; while Garvey | Simon has a special focus on works-on-paper. Both dealers also offer Modern and Contemporary works on the secondary market.
