100 days 100 galleries; Day 88: Louis K. Meisel Gallery, New York NY

In 1973, Louis K. Meisel Gallery opened its doors on Prince Street and West Broadway after 5 years on Madison Avenue as Meisel Gallery. The SoHo gallery currently occupies 20,000 square feet and continues to exhibit new paintings by many of the original Photorealist artists as well as a younger generation of realist painters and sculptors. Credited with coining the term “Photorealism,” Louis K. Meisel became a pioneer of Photorealist art, championing the work of such renowned painters as Richard Estes, Audrey Flack, Chuck Close, Charles Bell, Ron Kleemann, and Tom Blackwell. Meisel is the author of numerous books including the definitive volumes on Photorealism. The latest volume in the series, Photorealism in the Digital Age, was published in 2013 by Harry N. Abrams. Meisel has also authored monographs on Charles Bell, Richard Estes and Mel Ramos, and deco pottery designer Clarice Cliff.

Carlos Fentanes: When I look at a painting, sometimes I also spend time looking how it is framed, how it’s hanged, how the space can be transformed by an object.
I would like to see more of your space, not only the artworks.

The gallery didn’t answer.

OK, this is not going to work, I need to change the script. Any suggestions? I wanted to talk about their spaces, the gallery, the way they display the artworks but I barely receive any answer. During August my rate of responses were high than now that all the galleries are working at 100%, that makes no sense, the galleries should be more interested now in attract new audiences but it has been a very quiet month in my project. I’m going to change some tactics and attack again tomorrow.

At least they have info about submissions in their website:

Artists wishing to submit presentations of their work may do so by email. Send link to website OR send JPEGs and Bio to gallery@meisels.com
