A. Jain Marunouchi Gallery, located in the New York Gallery Building, was incorporated on October 2, 1997. Prior to 1997, the gallery had its roots as Jain Gallery, a well-known New York City gallery that was founded in 1980. Jain Gallery was initially located in New York’s prominent and industry-based Decoration & Design building, the epicenter of the city’s décor and design world. During its initial years, the gallery established many formidable connections with collectors, decorators, and public clients who continue to support the gallery to this day. By the mid 1990s, Jain Gallery’s management decided to focus heavily on the representation of Asian and European art, expanding beyond its traditional line of American artists. The gallery joined forces with a number of Japanese institutions and established itself in a prominent SoHo location at the birth of the downtown art movement in New York City.
For a number of years the gallery flourished as a destination for established and emerging artists alike. It helped make art more accessible to the public and promoted its works through various publications and art fairs. As the 90s came to an end, the art market began to shift from SoHo to Chelsea and Midtown Manhattan. It was at this point that the gallery moved to its current location at New York’s Gallery Building, a ten-story complex that houses some of the city’s finest and most well-known galleries. For the past eleven years A. Jain Marunouchi Gallery has exhibited and represented a diverse range of artists whose works span continents, genres, and mediums.
A. Jain Marunouchi Gallery is an institution that has been committed to exhibiting and representing fine artworks from prominent and emerging artists alike. The gallery has come to offer an extensive collection of contemporary artwork with artists from Asia, Australia, Europe, North America and South America. A. Jain Marunouchi Gallery has represented many fine artists at the international art fairs in Belgium, Los Angeles, Melbourne, New York, Switzerland, Tokyo and Yokohama. In addition, the gallery’s artists have been featured in Art in America, ArtNews, Asian Art Now, World Art, Art & Asia Pacific and The New York Times.
The new millennium has witnessed a surge in the popularity of contemporary art, both in the United States and abroad. In conjunction with its traditional art offerings, A. Jain Marunouchi Gallery continues in its passionate quest to promote and represent both emerging and well-established artists from across the globe. With a majority of the gallery’s artists residing in the Americas, Asia and Europe, A. Jain Marunouchi Gallery is certainly staying true to this focus. The gallery’s most recent efforts to establish the internet’s most refined and thorough art database, ArtLiaison, promises to follow in the gallery’s mission.
