New York’s Sandra Gering Inc. Gallery, located on Fourteen East Sixty-Third Street, has announced that it will close this summer after a twenty-five-year run. Its last exhibition, taking place from May 11 to July 28, will be an installation by Jennifer Wen Ma.
“To the many artists whose impact on the art community have enhanced and enriched my life and left footprints on the history of our world, I thank you,” Gering said in a statement. “It is my belief that each of you, in every capacity, has brought more to the table than can possibly be appreciated.”
After opening her first gallery space in Soho in 1991, Sandra Gering relocated several times, moving first to Chelsea and then to Fifth Avenue before she found its current venue. From 2006 to 2013, Gering partnered with Javier López and renamed the gallery Gering & López, then changed it to Sandra Gering Inc. after the business relationship dissolved.
Over the years, Gering has introduced and reinforced the careers of numerous established artists such as Janine Antoni, William Anastasi, Xavier Veilhan, John F. Simon, Jr., KAWS, and Leo Villareal. The gallery will officially close its doors on August 31.
