Showcased works primarily include painting, photography, sculpture and print. 

The gallery hosts an ongoing program of solo and group exhibitions, as well as collector talks, political fundraisers, panel discussions, and literary and poetry salons. The gallery also takes part in art fairs in the USA and Canada.

Of Earth and Sky: Recent Paintings by Rachelle Krieger at Susan Eley Fine Art

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

 Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening of “Of Earth and Sky: Recent Paintings by Rachelle Krieger.” This is Rachelle’s second solo exhibition at SEFA, following “Rocks and Rays” (2015), and two previous two-person exhibitions: “Currents of the Mind” (2013) and “A Semblance” (2010). The recent work is a continuation of the “Rocks and Rays” series, begun in 2015, in which the artist explores the dance between natural phenomena that is invisible (electricity, light waves, wind, air patterns) with the solid elements of earth and landscape. “Of Earth and Sky” includes paintings on linen canvas and on wood panel—ranging in size from 54 x 50 inches to as small as 8 x 10 inches—along with a suite of works on paper.

The exhibition will run from February 28th – April 12th 2018

They will celebrate the opening of the exhibition with a reception for the artist on Wednesday, February 28, 6-8 pm

Driven to Abstraction at Susan Eley Fine Art

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening of Driven To Abstraction, an all-women exhibition featuring paintings and works on paper by Caroline Blum (Window on Haight Street 2017 above),  Lori Ellison, Dana James, Melanie Parke and Lizzie Scott. The exhibition has been guest curated by Caroline Blum, a New York based abstract artist, and her husband David Reisman, a writer with Frieze Magazine.

The idea took shape for Caroline after reading recent criticism of mainstream museums and galleries for exhibiting more men than women. In response, Caroline chose to make a curatorial statement and feature five strong women painters. Making connections through social media and in galleries, Caroline identified a group of artists, leaders and innovators in contemporary abstraction, who would shine both individually and as a group.

Driven to Abstraction will be on view March 1 – April 13, 2017

OPENING RECEPTION: Wednesday, March 1, 6-8pm

Vroom Vroom Beep Beep, at Susan Eley Fine Art

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017
 CAROLYN MONASTRA, BURNED OUT CAR, EAST BASTROP, TEXAS, USA, 2011 (2011),

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening of Vroom Vroom Beep Beep, a group exhibition featuring paintings and photographs by Charles Buckley, John Conn, Victor Honigsfeld, Valeri Larko, Beñat Iglesias López, Carolyn Monastra, Maria Passarotti and Ruth Shively.

The car is so much more than a machine that moves people from point A to point B. It is a symbol of freedom, an emblem of America’s pioneering spirit, a status symbol, a mark of one’s wealth, and sometimes, a sad substitute for a home or a temporary place to lay one’s head. In addition to driving (pun intended) the nation’s economy and commerce, the car has played an important role in American culture – high and low—making appearances in advertisements, pop songs, film and fine art. This celebration of the culture of the car in America will run from January 12-February 24, 2017.
