In 1964, Warren Adelson founded Adelson Galleries in Boston with a focus on 19th and 20th century Fine Art. Seven years later, Warren moved to New York, where he has been ever since – currently located in Midtown Manhattan. For over 50 years, the gallery has handled some of the finest American paintings to come to market, placing works in major private collections as well as leading public institutions. The New York gallery is distinguished for its expertise in the fields of American Impressionism, Realism and Modernism. Warren continues to work in the New York gallery with the help of his son, Alan.
In 2012, Adam Adelson opened Adelson Galleries Boston with his sister, Alexa – Warren’s other two children in the art business. The siblings grew up in New York, around their parents’ esteemed gallery. Boston University brought Adam to Boston, and when he decided to open a gallery after graduation, he enlisted his younger sister. The gallery is located in the heart of the SoWA Arts District, and has quickly developed a reputation as one of the most well respected venues for exhibiting Contemporary Fine Art in Boston, MA. The gallery prides itself in introducing the city to internationally renowned Contemporary Artists, and has placed several artworks in Museums and private collections around the world.
Adam Adelson’s eye for Contemporary Art developed while growing up around the American Master paintings that his family’s gallery exhibited. The Contemporary artists that Adam has cultivated over the past six years are varied, yet each has grounding in Art History. The artists’ works voice various epochs of history in new visual languages that speak to modern-day society. Some of the artists take an academic approach, while others combine aspects of Modernism. In either case, they use their unique vernacular to express interpretations of the human condition as they see it.
In November 2018, Adelson Galleries opened their third location in Palm Beach, FL. Partnering with Cavalier Galleries (New York, Greenwich, Nantucket), the gallery will continue to exhibit. Adelson Cavalier Galleries will be curated with each gallery’s Contemporary artists as well as their Modern and historical Masters.
