Chelsea Art Gallery Tours

This main gallery district in NYC is constantly changing. Not only are the Chelsea gallery exhibitions changing every 4-6 weeks, the gallery businesses themselves are often relocating within the Chelsea art district and stretching those boundaries to the north and inland to the east. Among the countless choices, ART SMART will guide you to the most popular, respected, and relevant galleries while selecting options according to your tastes.


What to Expect

We can visit about 8-10 galleries during your guided two-hour art tour, or explore longer and more if you prefer. We put the gallery and works in context in a manner that invites discovery and discussion. Along the way, you’ll get an overview of the Chelsea gallery scene. As we do not offer public group tours, all of our excursions are private. Your tour will be led by a qualified art historian with a background in modern and contemporary art and experience in the field.

During the customization process, you can let us know your preference in:

  • media (painting, sculpture, photography etc.)
  • preferred periods (of the moment contemporary, more mid-century modern, or something more traditional)
  • tendency towards emerging talents or internationally acclaimed artists

For those interested in purchasing works of art, we can arrange for a behind-the-scenes viewing of the Chelsea galleries’ larger holdings.
