Since 1932 ACA Galleries has been at the vanguard of American Art. One of the oldest galleries in New York, its pioneering interest in progressive art was established early on in exhibitions often introducing the work of artists Giorgio Cavallon, Stuart Davis, Alice Neel, Barnett Newman, Irene Pereira, David Smith, Theodoros Stamos and Charles White, among others
In 1935 ACA hosted the first meetings of the American Artists’ Congress, the precursor to the Works Project Administration (WPA). During the 1960s ACA established its first foreign branch in Rome and ACA Heritage Gallery in Los Angeles signaling a deeper commitment to 19th and early 20th century American and European art.
Over the decades ACA’s scope has expanded to include contemporary American and European painting, sculpture and photography. ACA continues to break new ground representing innovative artists, distinguished estates and presenting exhibitions that honor the gallery’s deep historical roots.
