Hemingway African Gallery and Safaris, the leading wholesale importer of fine African art, has opened a new gallery in New York’s Tribeca located at 88 Leonard St. Co-founded by Gregory Hemingway, the late son of the American novelist Ernest Hemingway, and South African-born art dealer Brian Gaisford, the gallery is home to a vast trove of African artifacts, contemporary art pieces and home furnishing collected by Gaisford over years of traveling across sub-Saharan Africa.
The collection includes hand-carved Shona sculptures dating back to the 1950s, masks and sculptures, ancient artifacts, as well as contemporary holdings of decorative art and furniture. The gallery also offers a no-kill safari tour in several countries throughout the Motherland.
The gallery is open from Monday-Saturday 11am-7pm & Sunday 11am-4pm. The Gallery will host a launch event this upcoming fall and will feature several prominent African artists.
