Long-Sharp Gallery NYC Project SpaCE


Long-Sharp Gallery opened a project space in midtown New York in spring 2016 in The Gallery Building at 24 West 57th Street in New York City. The gallery is pleased to have a space alongside numerous prestigious galleries, many of which gallery owner Rhonda Long-Sharp has patronized as a collector.  Located on the 6th Floor in Suite 606, Long-Sharp Gallery Project Space features exhibits by represented and visiting artists often curated by guest curators.  Look for information about projects taking place in the space on the "Exhibits New York" page.   

 

A Fine Art Experience at the Conrad

Long-Sharp Gallery is part of "A Fine Art Experience" at the Conrad -- an innovative and award winning art program developed by Rhonda Long-Sharp and Conrad Indianapolis. The dual highlights of the program are the five rotating exhibits (approximately 8,000 square feet of public space is used for this purpose) and the "Art Ambassadors." Approximately two dozen art ambassadors (one of the "best kept secrets in Indianapolis" per Indianapolis Monthly Magazine, January 2013), receive regular training on the artwork and artists exhibiting in the hotel. Signified by a gold "artist's palate" pin, Art Ambassadors are available to answer questions posed by hotel guests and the visiting public about the art displayed. "A Fine Art Experience" also boasts special programming from Sunday Art Matinees to exhibit openings and participation in IDADA's First Fridays) and an "Art TV" station which educated interested guests about the artists being shown or other art related events. Peter Greenberg of CBS recently selected Conrad Indianapolis as one of the top four hotels for art in the work, and Modern Painters Magazine has dubbed a stay at Conrad Indianapolis akin to "a night at the museum" (Modern Painters Magazine, December 2012). Tel: 866.370.1601

Rhonda Long-Sharp, Owner

After a successful 20+ year legal career defending prisoners on death row, art enthusiast and collector Rhonda Long-Sharp decided to formally pursue her passion for the arts in 2005.  Beginning as both an art consultant and modern art broker, Long-Sharp specialized in post-war and contemporary multiples and works on paper.  Recognizing the internet’s inherent global accessibility to fine art and cognizant of obstacles that virtual galleries can place in a collector’s path, Long-Sharp invested substantial resources and years of experience as a collector and dealer to provide national and international buyers with security and confidence in the acquisition process.  Long-Sharp Gallery warrants each work sold with extensive warranties as to condition and authenticity.  Along with being a member of various federal bars, Long-Sharp is also a member of the International Fine Art Appraisers and the Indianapolis Downtown Artists and Dealers Association.
