About the Gallery
Founded in Chelsea in 1997, Derek Eller Gallery's mission is to promote emerging artists, champion under-recognized established artists, and present alternative art-historical narratives. Exhibiting work in a range of mediums, including painting, sculpture, photography, and installation, the gallery represents a multigenerational roster of contemporary artists from across the United States and abroad, including Alyson Shotz, David Kennedy Cutler, Steve DiBenedetto, Nancy Shaver, D-L Alvarez, and Michelle Segre. The gallery also works with Karl Wirsum of the legendary Chicago group the Hairy Who, whose first New York exhibition in over two decades was held at the gallery in 2010, and recently staged a survey of ceramics by Peter Shire, a former member of the iconic design collective Memphis. In 2016 the gallery relocated to the Lower East Side, occupying a renovated garage space at 300 Broome Street.
