Hales Gallery is delighted to announce the opening of the Project Room, the gallery’s first public exhibition space in New York City. The Project Room will open in September 2017.
Complementing the gallery’s existing exhibitions programme in London, the Project Room will be dedicated to an ongoing series of spotlight displays. The intimate environment will provide an opportunity to shine a focused light both on particular highlights and on lesser-known facets of the oeuvres of its exhibiting artists, historic and new.
The Project Room will be located on 64 Delancey Street in New York’s Lower East Side, where in March 2016 Hales opened its by-appointment office. The introduction of this new programme builds on the success of last year’s expansion, reinforcing the gallery’s long-standing and deeply valued relationship with collectors, artists and institutions in North America and the international art community.
"New York City has always been very special place for Hales Gallery. For over 20 years owners, Paul Hedge and Paul Maslin, have forged strong and meaningful relationships here, allowing the city to become a gateway to our great friends and supporters in North America. Our team are excited to honour this whilst continuing to connect the gallery artists with the dynamic and palpable energy on offer.” - Stuart Morrison
Selected exhibiting artists will include Frank Bowling, Andrea Geyer, Virginia Jaramillo and Thomas J Price. Further details to be announced soon.

Founded by Paul Hedge and Paul Maslin over 20 years ago, Hales Gallery opened in 1992 as a contemporary art space in Deptford, South London. In 2004 Hales Gallery moved to its new space in the Tea Building, a dynamic and creative hub in London's East End on the border of Shoreditch and the business district. In March 2016 the gallery opened a permanent office and private viewing gallery in New York's Lower East Side. The expansion acted as a platform through which to further reinforce the connection between the London gallery's roster of artists and the international art community.
For over two decades Hales Gallery has been a focal point for artists, collectors and institutional figures alike and has formed an important environment for the development and distribution of artworks and ideas, all of which has consistently attracted worldwide attention. At the core of the gallery's principles is the nurturing of emerging talents alongside some of today's most significant historic figures. Hales Gallery's commitment to artists whose work has garnered particular historical significance can be shown in its representation of figures such as Carolee Schneemann, Michael Smith, Frank Bowling OBE RA, Virginia Jaramillo and Stuart Brisley. Alongside these artists, the gallery has consistently and attentively supported and developed its younger artists' careers displayed in the success found by Thomas J Price, Omar Ba, Hew Locke, Rachael Champion and Trenton Doyle Hancock.
Hales Gallery regularly places its artists' works in the collections of some of the world's most significant private and public collections and works closely with respected curators and advisors in doing this. Some examples of the museum collections which have acquired works by Hales Gallery artists include Tate (London), Victoria & Albert Museum (London), The Whitney Museum of American Art (NYC), MoMA (NYC), The Metropolitan Museum of Art (NYC) and the Brooklyn Museum (NYC).
