20th Anniversary Exhibit

Wessel + O'Connor Fine Art is pleased to celebrate 20 years in business with a 20th Anniversary Exhibition, featuring works from some many of the artist's they have shown over the years, including: Andy Warhol, Paul Cadmus, Horst, Robert Mapplethorpe and George Platt Lynes.

Currently located in DUMBO Brooklyn, the gallery has had locations in the Tribeca, Soho, and Chelsea neighborhoods of New York, all at pioneering points in their transformations.

The gallery first opened in the fall of 1985 in the heart of Rome, Italy, focusing on American artworks from the vibrant East Village art scene, giving the first European solo shows to artist's such as Mike Bidlo, Craig Coleman, Marcus Leatherdale, Walter Robinson and Rhonda Zwillinger.

Since the early 90's, it has had an extensive dedication to the burgeoning interest in photography, often with an emphasis on the overlooked. The gallery has had three exhibitions of the work of George Platt Lynes, and given the first ever gallery shows to 1950's Physique pioneers Bruce of Los Angeles, Bob Mizer of the Athletic Model Guild and Lon of New York, the latter two during their lifetimes.
