FOX GALLERY NYC is a private salon on the Upper West Side of Manhattan offering a real life setting for select contemporary paintings, sculpture and photography. We are committed to promoting art that examines profoundly, as well as whimsically, the human condition, our socio-political relationship to the current world and our internal musings, articulated through visually and physically arresting artistic interpretations. Our exhibitions, since 2009, have included both established and emerging artists who, through their ongoing discoveries, expand the boundaries of tradition-based materials and methodologies in the making and the meaning of art. We support the belief that these works have enduring art historical and aesthetic relevance.
Hours by appointment only.
Annette Benda Fox
Salon Director Annette Benda Fox has worked in the art world for 40 years. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Queens College CUNY with a BA in Art History. During her Master Degree Studies at the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU, she began a 7 year career with Sotheby’s in London and NY, becoming VP in charge of African and Oceanic Art, followed by Mixed Consignments. In 1986-1988 she established and ran the Tribal Arts Department for Phillips Auction House, NYC. For 24 years (1983-2007) she was the independent art consultant/asset manager to J. Walter Thompson (JWT), overseeing an 8,000 piece collection ranging from period Americana and English furniture to Modern and Contemporary Art. This included inventory control, cataloguing, curation and sales. In addition, she created an in-house online 300+ item catalog of the most important artwork in the collection, an in-house exhibition schedule for artists who were JWT employees and a weekly NYC arts exhibition calendar.
In addition, Annette Benda Fox is an agent for collectors who decide to sell High End Fine Art, Furniture and Decorative Art through auction. Her experience as Consignment Services specialist for Sotheby’s affords her access to senior executives across the auction industry who historically offer her very favorable selling terms. She then administers the entire sales process, from delivery to cash disbursement.
