Establishing a collection means:

  • Having the pleasure of living with beautiful and meaningful artworks
  • Supporting artists at a specific moment in their evolution, and knowing that often the artwork you buy now will gain value and meaning over time.
  • Putting money towards what you believe in; such as supporting local spaces, and buying art by artists from diverse backgrounds.
  • Having a real relationship with the gallery you buy artwork from and being able to talk with a real person about the artwork and artists you’re interested in.
  • Starting a collection for favorite child in your life.

Gallery Aferro launches on Artsy.net! Please visit our Artsy page to find some of Aferro’s inventory gems and work by acclaimed visual artists such as Mona Hatoum, Tim Okamura, Kiki Smith and many others. 

Launching a new platform with Artsy supports our ongoing commitment to an experimental, accessible and dialogue-drive ethos. Our interest is in the mystery and possibilities of human creativity- where does the work come from? What is required to develop an expressive voice, and then to sustain it?

Our exhibits, events, collaborations, initiatives, legacy work, residencies and fellowships express a belief that we can hold a space for valuing and exploring more than what market forces would dictate. To continue to hold this space for revering and supporting process, we offer this new platform for collecting the wonderful artworks that arise from it.

We hope you will enjoy visiting many times to see what’s new, online and on Market Street.


Gallery Aferro is proud to have been the Curatorial Liaison to the estate of Gladys Barker Grauer and to have facilitated the posthumous exhibition of her artworks. As we approach our upcoming auction, the first in-person since 2019, “Before The Wave: Celebrating the Gladys Barker Grauer Legacy” we encourage collectors who are interested in her work to purchase a ticket to the event.  

“Daily Sacrifice to the Man” (pictured below) is one of Gladys Barker Grauer’s only large-run editions still available for purchase, and our Artshop online offering to accompany the “Before The Wave: Celebrating the Gladys Barker Grauer Legacy” auction event.
