The Merry Karnowsky Gallery is home to several of the most significant artists working today. Founded in 1997 by Merry Karnowsky, the gallery has had a central focus for nearly 10 years: championing emerging and mid-career artists who push beyond the boundaries of their medium.
The Gallery is devoted to exhibiting contemporary works of art that are challenging, innovative and committed to fostering new directions in American art. With a creative stable of artists who are sought after both nationally and internationally, the gallery has become one of Los Angeles’ premier maverick art venues.
