Founded in 1989 by Michael Rosenfeld and located in the New York Gallery Building on West 57th Street, Michael Rosenfeld Gallery, LLC specializes in twentieth-century American art. In 1992, halley k harrisburg joined the gallery, and since then, she and Michael Rosenfeld have worked together to advance and expand the canon of American art. The Gallery’s core mission is two-fold: to promote important movements within the history of art in the United States while also increasing the visibility of under-recognized American artists. As art historians with multi-faceted interests, Michael Rosenfeld and halley k harrisburg have developed a diverse and challenging exhibition program that consistently presents museum-quality historical and contemporary artworks with a fresh sensibility. In 2000, the Gallery was accepted into the Art Dealers Association of America.
To date, Michael Rosenfeld Gallery has mounted over 130 exhibitions, seventy of which have been solo shows for such artists as Romare Bearden, Beauford Delaney, Jay DeFeo, William H. Johnson, Blanche Lazzell, Norman Lewis, Charles Shaw, Pavel Tchelitchew, Alma Thomas, and Charles White. Thematic group exhibitions of early American abstraction, realism, surrealism, abstract expressionism, and social realism also continue to offer new perspectives on American modernism. Many Gallery exhibitions have traveled to distinguished institutions throughout the United States, including the Columbus Museum of Art, the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Greenville County Museum of Art, the Long Beach Museum of Art, the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Norton Museum of Art, and the Tubman African American Museum. Crucially, the Gallery’s exhibitions have played a significant role in highlighting the achievements of artists who had historically been marginalized in the mainstream art world due to both active and passive discrimination on the basis of race and gender.
