Located in Manhattan's Chelsea art district and in the town of East Hampton, NY, with its long and storied ties to the history of American art, Birnam Wood Galleries maintains a diverse program showing notable work of American Modernist painters from the early and mid-20th Century through the Post-war era. The gallery also represents a select group of accomplished mid-career and emerging contemporary artists. Birnam Wood Galleries is committed to mounting exhibitions of distinction, representing significant artists and movements in American art of the last century.
The gallery has mounted both historically-themed exhibitions such as Modern Life: American Painting Between the Wars; A Place in the World: Modernist Women from 1913-2005; and New York, New York: The 20th Century Urban Image, as well as solo retrospectives like Elaine de Kooning: Out of the Shadow and Chloe Lamb: Color and Form.
The gallery also provides research and advisory services for those searching for works by a particular artist or movement, whether they are looking to purchase at auction or through a private sale. We offer individuals, estates, corporations and museums a discrete and confidential alternative to the public marketplace.
