June Kelly Gallery

166 Mercer Street
New York, NY 10012


The June Kelly Gallery was founded in 1986 in the historic SoHo district of New York City.  The gallery specializes in contemporary paintings, drawings, sculpture and photography and represents work by a diverse group of emerging, mid-career and established artists, many of whom have achieved international recognition and acclaim.

Exhibitions by gallery artists have received numerous reviews in leading publications that cover the art world, including ARTnews, Art in America, The New York Times and Sculpture Magazine.  The artists themselves have also been profiled in those publications, and the gallery was featured in a cover story in Art + Auction magazine.

The gallery also specializes in assisting corporations, other entities and individuals in building collections and helping them to find artwork that best represents their own aesthetic concepts.  The gallery is able to reach out to a variety of sources to find museum-quality work by contemporary artists, as well as masters from an earlier era.  The gallery also publishes artist catalogues that are placed in museum libraries as well as institutions of higher learning.

In 1996, the gallery was elected to membership in the prestigious Art Dealers Association of America.  June Kelly, the gallery director, is a member of the Board of Trustees of both Pratt Institute and the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, and is also a member of ArtTable, Inc., and Women’s Forum, Inc.

For the last decade the gallery has exhibited at the ADAA Art Fair, New York, Art Chicago International Art Fair and ArtHamptons, Bridgehampton, New York

Before opening the gallery, June Kelly managed the career of artist Romare Bearden for 13 years until his death in 1988.  During this period Ms. Kelly was involved with exhibitions in the United States and in Europe, arranging touring exhibitions and negotiating public art commissions.
