Osceola Gallery

About Us:
Osceola Gallery was founded in 1976. Osceola is my father's name. He was named after the famous Seminole Indian, Osceola who died in 1819. The Seminole's were the only tribe that was never killed, captured or surrendered.

Evolving from an antique shop into a gallery with art styles ranging from Abstract Expressionism to Art Nouveau to Contemporary Art, the collection has included the works of Manuel Neri, Robert Motherwell, Peter Voulkos, Robert Arneson, Alphonse Mucha and Mary Cassat.

During the 1970's the Bay Area experienced a renaissance in art. I was dealing lithographs and other works on paper with Pascal de Sarthe from Paris, Harris Stewart, a longtime art dealer from Walton-Gilbert Galleries, and Steven Thomas Fine Art; all in San Francisco. Pascal and I had our first show in 1978 at Pascal's apartment on Broadway which featured the work of Dan Stolpe. The show was a success and sparked my interest in collecting/dealing.

Aside from the artist producing the art, the collector plays an integral and important role in the life of the created object. My dedication to art has developed from collecting. Although never formally educated in the arts, my passion grew from being involved in the art world on a global level.

The idea for the current exhibit was inspired by listening to John Coltrane's A Few of My Favorite Things and feeling ecstatic about Osceola's eclectic array of art. I looked around and realized that I had some wonderful things that I wanted to share. I took that inspiration and began compiling the work for the show, which reflects the diversity and extent to Osceola Gallery. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
