About

For over 50 years, Adelson Galleries has handled some of the finest American paintings to come to market, placing works in major private collections as well as leading public institutions. Distinguished for its expertise in the fields of American Impressionism, Realism and Modernism, the gallery was founded in 1964 by Warren Adelson in Boston, and is located today in Midtown Manhattan.
In addition to sponsoring both the John Singer Sargent and Mary Cassatt catalogue raisonné projects, the gallery regularly handles works by leading 19th- and 20th-century American artists, including George Bellows, Frank Benson, Mary Cassatt, William Merritt Chase, Thomas Wilmer Dewing, Thomas Eakins, Marsden Hartley, Childe Hassam, Robert Henri, Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, Eastman Johnson, John Marin, Georgia O'Keeffe, Maurice Prendergast, John Singer Sargent, Edmund Tarbell, Andrew and Jamie Wyeth, among others. The gallery also exhibits works by selected contemporary artists.
Warren's son and daughter, Adam and Alexa Adelson, opened Adelson Galleries Boston in 2012. The siblings represent the New York gallery’s contemporary artists, and exhibit other emerging and established artists whose work is varied in aesthetic, yet binding in consistent quality. The gallery has quickly become one of Boston’s most well respected venues for exhibiting Contemporary Fine Art, and has placed several artworks in Museums and major collections around the world.

Horse - FEDERICO URIBE

FEDERICO URIBE Horse
Life-size, rearing horse made entirely out of used, recycled bullet shells. Uribe's newest, monumental sculpture.

Bunny (Black Spots) - FEDERICO URIBE

FEDERICO URIBE Bunny (Black Spots)
In Uribe's iconic bullet shell series, there is a stark juxtaposition between an innocent creature and an inherently violent medium. The contrast immediately calls for closer inspection, and then introspection. Despite the artist’s choice of medium, he is not trying to push an overtly political agenda. Rather, Uribe asks you to step out of your comfort zone for a moment, into his world, and marvel at something you’ve never seen before.

Fishing - FEDERICO URIBE

FEDERICO URIBE Fishing
Federico Uribe, in his distinctive style, combines colored pencil drawing on canvas with sculpture made from the colored pencils themselves - bringing the artwork alive. This new, whimsical composition exemplifies Uribe's fascination with animals, and their personification of human interactions.

  • Federico Uribe  (+)

    Biography : Born in Bogotá, Colombia in 1962, Federico Uribe currently lives and works in Miami. His artwork resists classification, and emerges from intertwining everyday objects in surprising ways that maintain a formal reference to art history. Uribe studied art at the University of Los Andes in Bogotá, and in 1988 he left for New York to pursue an MFA degree under the supervision of Luis Camnitzer. After receiving his degree, he left New York to study and work in Cuba, Mexico, Russia, England, and finally Miami. Initially, his formation began as a painter with sensual and brooding canvases, representing the pain of his youth. In 1996, Uribe abandoned his paintbrushes and canvases in favor of his growing attraction to alternative media objects. He began to carefully observe them, collect them, juxtapose them, and combine them. They became unusual instruments of a new aesthetic, full of color, irony, and lively playfulness. Uribe creates sculptures that are constructed in curious, unpredictable, and almost compulsive ways. They follow the classical canons of figurative and abstract art, but the results are unique and whimsical. When observed closely, his works reveal various kinds of interpretations; they tempt us to touch them, to discover the detail and connection between one element and another. When viewed from further away, they offer volumes, forms, textures, and color. Distance, proximity, and perception are key factors in the interconnection between Uribe’s work and its viewers.
