Cavin-Morris Gallery was founded in 1985, and our first gallery was on Hudson Street in Tribeca. Five years later we moved to 560 Broadway, which was home for fifteen years. We then moved to 210 Eleventh Avenue, for another fifteen years before finally moving to 529 West 20th Street, in April 2021. 

The Gallery has been exhibiting contemporary artists from around the world for almost 40 years. We specialize in the work of contemporary artists who do not intentionally make art for the art world mainstream canon. We represent past and new generations of artists whose work ultimately feels timeless to us.

We also concentrate on both functional and non-functional contemporary ceramics. We are especially interested in the way certain ceramists push the envelope in their expression of traditional forms and cultures. We show work by Western ceramic artists, as well as works by artists from Japan, Korea, and China.

The common thread that connects all this art is its uniqueness, its integrity, visionary authenticity, the intermingling of spirituality with nature, and its reflection of cultural homeground. We look for the place where labels become irrelevant and the work remains urgent, immediate, and singular.
