This contemproary art gallery—started by Italian art dealer Gian Enzo Sperone, Angela Westwater and German art dealer Konrad Fischer—is as old-school as it gets, having opened in 1975 in Soho, back when artists actually lived there. The gallery shortened its name to Sperone Westwater in 1982, and in 2002 moved to West 13th Street in the Meatpacking District. Eight years later, the gallery moved to its current home, an eight-storey, purpose-built showcase designed by starchitects Foster + Partners. One innovative feature of the place: a moving exhibiton hall—actually a 12-by-20-by-13-foot elevator that can be connected to any one of the floors to extend the viewing space.

As an artist with highly textural, and large format work, I am ever curious about ways in which to offer viewers a varied experience with my work. The elevator viewing option at Sperone Westwater is a brilliant and unique opportunity to showcase the "living" qualities of art. My large impressionist landscapes are chunky dense bold and modern up close.....when viewed from 15-30 feet they crystallize into the photographic memories of standing in the pristine Canadian locations they are painted from.
There are not many art venues that do what Sperone Westwater does for the art lover and the artist!
