The gallery will continue to work directly with a number of artists, many of whom we have had a relationship with for over two decades. Our exhibition program will be inaugurated with Ron Gorchov's paintings from 1979–1983. This fall, we will publish Cheim \u0026amp; Read: 21 Years, a pictorial history of the gallery. We will also have a private showroom in Chelsea located at 508 West 26th Street.\n\nCheim \u0026amp; Read's new program will mount exhibitions with a historical focus and examine key periods in artists’ oeuvres. Catalogues and other publications will add to our commitment to original scholarship. We will continue to work with artists on the primary market, while concentrating on private sales in the secondary market. This work is informed by our depth of knowledge developed by decades of connoisseurship and our extensive archive
