On November 16th, 2017 ABXY will present a collection of paintings by the Paris-based, world- renowned artist: EALY MAYS. Mays is a painter’s painter for whom art is to be accessible to all. His work has been exhibited in such prestigious institutions as The Guggenheim Museum, (New York), the Louvre (Paris), Hammonds House (Atlanta), Galeria Clava (Mexico), and many more. ABXY is honored for the opportunity to exhibit a collection from this legendary outsider artist in New York for the first time in nearly a decade.
ABOUT THE GALLERY
ABXY is a Lower East Side Gallery specializing in emerging and outsider artists. Inspired by the salon-style galleries of history’s great female art collectors –women like Peggy Guggenheim and Gertrude Stein– ABXY formed in 2015 when streetwise art advisor, Allison Barker, invited a carefully curated group of emerging artists to use her SoHo home-office as studio space. As the walls filled with their paintings, the space filled with friends and ABXY quickly became a haven for collectors and artists of all fields, backgrounds, and experience levels to discover one another. In 2017, ABXY opened an art gallery to the public for the first time. From their new Clinton Street headquarters, Barker continues to present socially beneficial exhibitions while providing studio space for her artists.
Visit ABXY Gallery on Artsy to see available artworks.
