Founded in 1981, Mary Ryan Gallery specializes in modern and post-war/contemporary prints and works on paper. We are a member of the Art Dealer’s Association of America (ADAA) and a founding member of the International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA).

The gallery has continuously been open to the public since its founding and is currently located in Chelsea on 26th Street overlooking the High Line. We have organized over 200 solo and group exhibitions, and have published numerous catalogs that have generated, and continue to further important artistic legacies. In between exhibitions, there is a rotating selection of works by 20th century and contemporary artists on view. These primarily consist of works on paper and include a selection of paintings, sculpture editions, and photography as well.

Mary Ryan Gallery is known for its expertise and original scholarship in prints and works on paper. We pride ourselves on being a place of discovery, as we are constantly striving to expand our knowledge and support of new artists and fields. Our long-standing commitment to prints and works on paper has translated to established relationships with museums and curators throughout the United States and abroad, as well as extensive experience guiding collectors as they build their collections over decades.

The gallery began with a focus on modern prints and introduced some of the first exhibitions of British Linocuts, Provincetown Woodcuts, and Atelier 17 in the United States. We became the exclusive representative of several modern masters and estates including Sybil Andrews, Hugo Gellert, Louis Lozowick, Ethel Mars, and Lill Tschudi, promoting their work and generating collector awareness and major museum exhibitions. The gallery continues to represent contemporary artists and estates.

By the late 1980s, the gallery expanded its focus to include important post-war and contemporary prints and photography such as Josef Albers, Emma Amos, Louise Bourgeois, Richard Diebenkorn, David Hockney, Alex Katz, Ellsworth Kelly, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Longo, Joan Mitchell, Jean Pagliuso, Kiki Smith and Donald Sultan, and has become a leader in promoting the American renaissance of printmaking. We work with leading artists and publishers and have collaborated with numerous artists to publish original prints. Since its inception, the gallery has championed the work of women artists from the early 20th century to today.

Please note that recent acquisitions are updated on our website regularly, although our complete inventory is not available online.
