The guiding spirit and mentor of Essie Green Galleries was Romare Bearden. As a result we are often referred to as a Bearden Gallery. We concentrate on the sale of work by the senior Black Masters, following Mr. Bearden's guidance. Our inventory of paintings and sculptures encompasses works by: Romare Bearden, Charles Alston, Edward M. Banister,William C. Carter, Sam Gilliam, John W. Hardrick,Lois Mailou Jones, Norman Lewis, Geraldine McCullough, Charles Ethan Porter, William Edouard Scott, Allen Stringfellow, Mose Tolliver and several others. Our first gallery opening took place on December 15th, 1979 in Park Slope, Brooklyn. We have celebrated continued growth since moving to the Sugar Hill area in Harlem from Brooklyn and have become a centerpiece of the new renaissance in Black culture not only in New York but throughout the whole of America.

Essie Green Galleries is located at 419A Convent Avenue New York NY, 10031 in the Sugar Hill Historic District of Harlem. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10am-6pm. For more information please contact us at 212-368-9635, fax at 212 281-6675, email or visit
