Sears-Peyton GalleryNew York
Founded in Soho in 1999 by Macie Sears and Gaines Peyton, Sears-Peyton Gallery now has two locations: a public gallery in Manhattan’s Chelsea art district and a private viewing space in Brentwood, Los Angeles, CA.
Sears-Peyton represents the work of contemporary American artists. With emphasis on process-driven exploration, improvisation, and rigorous craft, Sears-Peyton’s artists are committed to producing earnest and contemplative works of art. While the gallery’s artists work in a wide variety of media and subject matters, the common thread that unites this diverse stable of talent is grounding in historic styles and subjects, rendered contemporary and seductive through modern processes, interpretations, moods, and techniques. The resulting work feels simultaneously timeless and timely. The gallery is committed to the long-term development of their artists-placing works in public and private collections, as well as acting as an accessible public space in which works are exhibited and become part of the cultural dialogue.
Sears-Peyton Gallery has placed gallery artists in major institutional collections including: The Art Institute of Chicago, The Kemper Museum, The Denver Art Museum, The University of Maine Museum of Art, The Alden B. Dow Museum of Art and Science, The Columbia Museum of Art, The Irish Museum of Art, and The Orlando Museum of Art.
Sears-Peyton has participated in art fairs, such as the Works on Paper Show at the Park Avenue Armory, the LA Art Show, AIPAD The Photography Show New York, Pulse Los Angeles, Photo LA and Pulse New York. Gallery artists and exhibitions have been covered in various publications including ARTnews; Art in America; Elle Décor; Sculpture Magazine; Art Critical; The Hudson Review; Works in Conversation; 7 x 7 Magazine, Wallpaper Magazine; Metropolis Magazine; Parabola Magazine; Drawing Magazine; The Daily Beast; The Village Voice; and The New York Times.
