On Cultivating Relationships: an Interview with Elizabeth K. Garvey, Co-founder and Director of Garvey|Simon

Tuesday, August 20th, 2019

Elizabeth K. Garvey is the Co-Founder and Director of Garvey|Simon. Prior to its establishment in 2010, Liz was the President and Owner of EKG Art Advisory (1999-2009), and Co-Director of Schmidt-Bingham Gallery (1989-1998). She is also a member of Art Table, a professional organization dedicated to advancing the leadership of women in the visual arts, as well as a founding member of the New York chapter of the Association of Women Art Dealers. Throughout her career, Liz has placed herself at the forefront of business and social advancements, leveraging her experience to further the progress of the fine arts industry. http://www.garveysimon.com/

Garvey|Simon’s contemporary exhibition program focuses primarily on works on paper. Though the roster ranges from hyperrealist to abstract, the artists are unified by their use of unusual materials and meticulous methodology. This interest in circumventing the norm lies at the core of Garvey|Simon’s business mission. Established with the intent of extending the reach of the New York art scene, Garvey|Simon began with a series of pop-ups in New York and the Midwest. Liz is constantly looking to identify and expand into alternative markets and collaborate with other seasoned dealers and galleries.  Liz is also very active in the secondary market, assisting clients to sell their work privately and with discretion.

Liz assists collectors nationwide as a private curator to establish and build art collections. She is always thrilled to help individuals purchase their first piece of fine art. Her approach is grounded, offering clients a relaxed entry into the New York art world. 

Other services include: collection and database management, appraisals, framing, artist coaching, online platform consultation, and selling on the secondary market.

Select 3 at Garvey|Simon Gallery

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018

Garvey|Simon  is pleased to announce Select 3, the third annual exhibition of work by mid-career artists chosen by director Elizabeth K. Garvey through the gallery’s innovative Review Program. This year’s artists are: Kathy Cantwell, Kate Doyle, Bob Erickson, Jeanne Heifetz, Eileen Murphy, Tim Nighswander, Steven Paddack, Jane Schiowitz, and Marilyn Turtz.

This year’s iteration features an array of mediums and conceptual frameworks, all united by their interest in the intersection between design and the natural world. Bob Erickson’s and Tim Nighswander’s plant-based subjects are abstracted by their role as compositional elements. Both Jane Schiowitz’s and Jeanne Heifetz’s works reference the dichotomy of frivolity and efficiency at the foundation of design. Marilyn Turtz and Eileen Murphy each explore personal landscapes and strategically place swaths of unmodulated color to flatten their pictorial planes. The quirky, anthropomorphic objects in Steven Paddack’s miniature water towers play with scale and form. Kate Doyle and Kathy Cantwell both utilize polished surfaces and high-key color as a means of assimilating, abstracting, and reflecting the patterns of their natural surround.

The exhibition runs from July 26th – August 17th. Opening July 26th 6:00pm – 8:00pm.

Garvey|Simon is pleased to present Danielle Riede: Wingspan,

Sunday, November 19th, 2017

Garvey|Simon is pleased to present Danielle Riede: Wingspan, an exhibition featuring the artist’s recent abstract oil paintings. This will be the first solo show in New York and at Garvey|Simon for the Indiana-based artist. The exhibition is ongoing through December 23, 2017.

Danielle Riede imbues her abstractions with lyricism and sensitivity, using dance, gesture, and movement patterns as the basis for her new paintings. A painter as well as a lifelong dancer, Riede translates movement through space to the surface of the canvas, and allows the nuance of her gesture to inform the inflection of her brushstroke. Riede captures the ephemerality of dance in her work and transforms her canvases into portraits of performance. Riede most recently collaborated with choreographer, Stephanie Nugent and performed her own work, “Mad River Echo,” at the premiere of BIG TENT at the Indianapolis Museum of Art

JOAN GRUBIN: The Detritus Series at Garvey|Simon

Sunday, November 19th, 2017

Garvey|Simon is pleased to present JOAN GRUBIN: The Detritus Series, an exhibition featuring compact and complex collages created with colorful ephemera from the artist’s studio. Grubin’s one rule in the creation of these works is that no intentional marks be added. These intimate structures are a collaboration between intention and chance. The pieces stay true to what Grubin explores with her larger paper works and installations, creating “optical experiences which raise questions about the discrepancy between what we see and what we know.”

This is Grubin’s first solo show with Garvey|Simon. The exhibition is ongoing through December 23, 2017.
