What you'll do

We'll visit the hidden gems of the New York art world. We'll meet for a quick coffee, and then walk through downtown neighborhoods and visit the galleries. The Lower East Side, or Chelsea, or the East Village – each tour is a unique experience, off the beaten path and into a world of artists and their materials, paintings, sculptures, photographs, videos and installations. We often meet the gallery owners along the way – they're friendly and happy to share stories of the art and artists they show. And the art is STUNNING. From early-career artists making bold and exciting work, to established international artists, bringing phenomenal expertise, materials and ideas to their latest work. Most galleries have a back room or project space – filled with other artwork – that isn't always open to the public. We'll go in those back rooms and project spaces, see more of the artists that each gallery represents, and really hear about the gallery's program. My relationships with gallerists and artists are very good. We'll be treated accordingly!

John

I’m an Art Advisor, art collector and curator. For several years I traveled the world as a filmmaker. Sharing my passion for art and artists across New York City is my way of championing creativity, expression and achievement. And it's New York! The neighborhoods of galleries and artist studios are amazing to explore. I enjoy terrific relationships with artists and gallerists, so I'm often able to show my guests behind-the-scenes of the New York art world. I also work directly with several artists, and volunteer with arts organizations in Brooklyn – helping artists get shows, working with galleries to promote their artists, curating shows and exhibitions for galleries and events. There's lots to do! And I recently launched a new gallery – Gagné Contemporary – on Artsy, featuring 10 New York artists for whom I have the utmost respect.
