Sargent's Daughters was founded in 2014 on the Lower East Side. The gallery takes its name from the painter John Singer Sargent, who was an innovator working in a traditional medium. Accordingly, the gallery interest is in artists whose work combines the same qualities of tradition and cutting edge. In addition to exhibitions by represented gallery artists, Sargent's Daughters creates collaborations as a platform for exploring new conversations within a wider context and presents a strong female program, often highlighting overlooked artists working outside the established gallery world. The gallery has a history of granting young artists their first exhibition opportunities. Sargent's Daughters was the first to exhibit Jordan Casteel, Cy Gavin and Wendy Red Star in their debut NY solo shows, as well as placing works in major museums such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. The gallery produces catalogues to further the dialogue of the artists' work. Gallery exhibitions have been featured in The New York Times, ARTFORUM and Art in America, among other national and international publications.
