- George Adams Gallery
The George Adams Gallery was originally established as the Allan Frumkin Gallery, Chicago, in 1952. The Allan Frumkin Gallery, New York opened in 1960 and George Adams began his association there in 1980. In 1988 the name was changed to the Frumkin/Adams Gallery, which remained until Allan Frumkin's retirement in 1995, when the name was changed once more to the George Adams Gallery. The George Adams Gallery represents and regularly exhibits the work of 22 artists ranging from very established to emerging. Several - Jack Beal, Roy De Forest, James McGarrell and Peter Saul - have been with the gallery since the early 1960s, while others, such as Lesley Dill and Valerie Demianchuk, became associated with the gallery only recently. In fact, the gallery has continually introduced younger, emerging artists over the years, many of whom have since gone on to achieve significant reputations. Since 1990 the gallery has given artists Chester Arnold, James Barsness, Jose Bedia, Diane Edison, Andrew Lenaghan, Arnaldo Roche Rabell and Sandy Winters their first solo exhibitions in New York.
