Founded 1952

The George Adams Gallery traces its origin to the Allan Frumkin Gallery, founded in Chicago in 1952 and New York in 1959. George Adams’ association with the New York gallery began in 1980, when Mr. Adams and Mr. Frumkin formed a partnership, Frumkin/Adams Gallery, in 1988. Upon Mr. Frumkin’s retirement in 1995, the gallery assumed its present identity of George Adams Gallery. In 2005, after 46 years on 57th Street, the gallery relocated to West 26th Street in Chelsea and in 2021, to its first ground floor space on Walker Street in Tribeca.
