Where to view and purchase art in Greeenwich

New York City may be the center of the art world but Greenwich offers some of the area’s best places to buy and see art. Whether you are a culture vulture, art collector or are looking to get your feet wet in the exciting art world, you’ll be surprised at how much you can do in town.

Where to View Art:

Bruce Museum

1 Museum Drive

The Bruce Museum is not your average suburban museum. If you have not been here since your childhood field trip to look at rocks, then you are in for a very happy surprise when you visit today. A major expansion and re-design of this 139-year old building in the 1990s brought the Bruce Museum national attention. In addition to its permanent collection, which includes art from the Cos Cob Art Colony – an important group of American Impressionists, as well as an impressive science collection (yes, the rocks are still there!), the Bruce Museum continues to raise the bar with an exciting roster of exhibitions. Contemporary art lovers are in for a treat this fall with an astounding Chuck Close exhibit of portraits that is bound to make Manhattan museum curators jealous.  

The Brant Foundation Art Study Center

941 North Street

Greenwichites are lucky to have access to one of the best private art collections in the country in our own back yard. Tucked away in Conyers Farm, the Brant Foundation shows blue chip contemporary art exhibits (think big ticket artwork worthy of the cover of a Sotheby’s or Christie’s auction catalogue) curated primarily from Peter Brant’s remarkable art collection. The Brant Foundation is an incredible resource to Greenwich school children and teens who regularly visit the study center, as well as to scholars and lovers of post-war and contemporary art. Interested in visiting? Appointments must be made in advance but the extra effort is worth the experience.  

Where to Buy Art:

Samuel Owens Gallery

378 Greenwich Avenue

This Greenwich Ave gallery has earned a cult following as the “it” place to buy the hottest new art on the scene. The fall show is on Shepard Fairey, the influential street artist who created iconic images from Andre the Giant to President Obama (in his famous Hope poster). We’re proud to have such a cool gallery in our town.

Drawing Room

5 Suburban Avenue

If you want to envision how a work of art will look in your home, the Drawing Room in Cos Cob offers a unique environment to help you find that perfect painting to hang over your living room sofa. With a gallery, home accessories shop and even a café (with the best scones in town) the Drawing Room is not your typical “white cube” gallery space. And we wouldn’t have it any other way. This fall they have a group show entitled “Repetition” which includes work by local Greenwich artist, Alec Madoff as well as other New England artists.

Abby M Taylor Fine Art LLC

43 Greenwich Avenue

Looking for a work of art worthy of a museum? Then visit art dealer, Abby M Taylor to view (and maybe buy) historically significant 19th and 20th century art. The gallery regularly shows paintings and sculpture from important genres including French Impressionism and Abstract Expressionism. And if you’re feeling like expanding your horizons beyond the Greenwich art market, then Abby M Taylor can be your entry into the New York art world -- they additionally have a New York location with James Graham and Sons, Inc. on the Upper East Side.
