Sean Horton (Presents)DALLAS
Sean Horton and Horton Gallery are pleased to announce a new gallery in Dallas, Texas. Occupying a storefront on West Jefferson Avenue in Dallas’ Oak Cliff neighborhood, the new space will be known as Sean Horton (Presents) and will primarily focus on bringing the work of nationally and internationally established artists, as well as emerging figures, to North Texas audiences.
“I hope to spark a dialogue with the visual landscape of the neighborhood while continuing to cultivate the gallery’s international audience,” Horton says. “As a native Texan from the area, I feel that this opportunity represents a homecoming to a city where, in my early 20s, I first discovered contemporary art.”
Horton opened his first gallery location, SUNDAY LES, as a project space in an abandoned sneaker shop on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in 2006. One of the earliest art galleries in the neighborhood, Horton Gallery, under several names, has since operated in the Chelsea, Chinatown, and Rose Hill neighborhoods of New York City, as well as the Kreuzberg neighborhood of Berlin. The gallery has realized more than 150 exhibitions, art fairs, and offsite projects in a variety of interesting spaces and contexts that include an old brewery and the parlor level of a residential townhouse.
Horton is known for discovering and launching the careers of emerging artists, and Horton Gallery presented the New York solo debuts of Keltie Ferris, Leidy Churchman, Kate Groobey, Michael Berryhill, Michael Jones McKean, and Natasza Niedziolka. Widely reviewed gallery exhibitions have also included those by Saul Becker, Trudy Benson, Elijah Burgher, Peter Gallo, Clare Grill, Kirk Hayes, and Aaron Spangler. In addition, Horton has exhibited outsider artists Gayleen Aiken, Royal Robertson, and Miroslav Tichý, as well as artwork by notable indie musicians Joel Gibb and G.B. Jones. In Berlin, Horton hosted the European premiere of A.L. Steiner and A.K. Burns ‘s film Community Action Center. Horton Gallery has been a member of the New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) since 2008.
