Sherry Leedy Contemporary Art opened in 1985 with the goal of presenting contemporary works of art of exceptional quality and merit. Celebrating our 33rd year, the gallery is now one of the oldest sustained contemporary art galleries in Kansas City and the Midwest representing emerging, midcareer, and internationally established artists making exciting and technically proficient work in all fine art mediums.
Gallery exhibition highlights include over 100 Solo shows with established and mid-career artists including Hung Liu, Peter Voulkos, Jun Kaneko, Rudy Autio, Therman Statom, Judy Onofrio, Chris Gustin, Tom Huck, Cynthia Schira, Jeff Aeling, Keith Jacobshagen, Larry Schwarm, Barbara Rogers, Michael Schultz, Dale Chihuly and others. The gallery represents the estate of Peter Voulkos.
The gallery has placed over 150 works of art in museum collections and gallery artists are represented in over 100 museums worldwide. As a full service, client oriented gallery, Sherry Leedy Contemporary Art is an important resource for private collectors, public institutions, corporations and first time art buyers across the globe. One example of the way that the gallery works together with clients and experienced gallery artists is on commissioned works of art, managing and facilitating all aspects of special projects and acquisitions.
