NEW YORK, NY.-
Since opening its doors in 1981, Nohra Haime Gallery

Since the early 1980s, the gallery has moved from uptown to midtown to Chelsea, opening up a second location, NH Galería in Cartagena, Colombia in 2011. With time, weve evolved, weve changed, weve had to reinvent ourselves. Although there are certain artists that I've worked with since I started, which is very rare, reflects Nohra Haime, founder. Haime began her gallery with internationally-diverse artists, including Julio Larraz (Cuba), Sophia Vari (Greece).Pierre Dunoyer (France), Maripaz Jaramillo (Colombia), Ramiro Llona (Peru), and Jorge Tacla (Chile). On view in the anniversary exhibition are works from 1981-2021 by artists from over a dozen countries. What brings them all together is a very large and expressive force. They are artists who are saying something
Ive come to realize that I represent a type of art that transcends this instant. - Nohra Haime.
