The Ronald Feldman Gallery is a pioneer in the world of contemporary art. The gallery has called the lush Soho district home since 1971, where it still exhibits drawings, media, paintings, sculptures, film, and new media. It was initially known as Ronald Feldman Fine Arts and was first opened in November of 1971 on East 74th Street by Frayda and Ronald Feldman. However, soon after, they began operating exhibition spaces both downtown and uptown. They would continue to do so until after the season of 1982, at which point they decided to consolidate to their current location on Mercer Street.
The name was changed to Ronald Feldman Gallery in 2017 and has remained at the forefront of NYC’s contemporary art scene even in the face of a pandemic. Though the times have changed, the gallery has continued to work with team members, clients, and artists remotely. Another change has been the way guests are able to view Feldman’s art. At this time, the gallery is closed to in-person visits, but they feature many virtual exhibits with information available via social media and their website.
The Ronald Feldman Gallery features works from many artists, including The Oakes Twins, Richard Ross, Sam Van Aken, Andy Warhol, and more.
Before visiting this art gallery, it’s a good idea to check their website or give them a call to see if they are open for physical visits. If not, you may be lucky enough to find a current virtual exhibition and enjoy it from the comfort of your own home.
