Nancy Hoffman Gallery opened in SoHo in 1972, among the first contemporary galleries downtown to show paintings, sculpture, drawings, photographs, video, and installations. In October 2008 after more than 35 years in SoHo the gallery moved to its new home at 520 West 27th Street in Chelsea—a light-filled space with majestically high ceilings and a sculpture garden.
Eight years ago Nancy Hoffman Gallery commenced an active and on-going Projects Space gallery to showcase younger artists. The Projects program continues to grow and develop to introduce new artists to the gallery group and audience. Each artist’s single-minded, obsessive, commitment to a personal vision and the process by which that vision is realized links younger to more mature artists.
Nancy Hoffman Gallery maintains commitment, consistency and loyalty to its artists over the years. Some of the artists have shown with the gallery since1972, others have joined the gallery in recent years. The artists come from Australia, China, France, England and the United States and have had exhibitions in this country, Europe, Australia, Asia, as well as the first virtual “art exhibition” in space on astronaut’s computer screens.
Nancy Hoffman Gallery’s active program consists of rotating solo exhibitions, active participation in art fairs throughout the country, along with membership in the Art Dealers Association of America, and Fine Art Dealers Association. Gallery exhibitions occur on a monthly basis with a focus on solo shows in the main gallery space, and introductory shows in the Projects Space. Periodic theme shows include guest artists.
The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10-6 from September through July, and in August Monday through Friday from 10-5.
