Postmasters Gallery was founded by Magda Sawon and Tamas Banovich in New York's East Village in December 1984.
In 1989, the gallery moved to Soho and relocated again to Chelsea in September 1998. In October 2013, the gallery opened its new spectacular 6,500 square-foot space on 54 Franklin Street in Tribeca.
During its 38 years, Postmasters has represented and exhibited young and established artists who work across a range of mediums including painting, sculpture, video, digital, installation, photography and NFTs. Postmasters actively seeks new forms of creative expression and exhibits them in the context of traditional and nontraditional formats alike. The artworks are largely content oriented, conceptually based and, most importantly, reflective of our time.
"Leave it to two twentysomethings from Eastern Europe to found what would become one of the most forward-looking American galleries of the past 36 years. Passion for identifying what's next is what keeps Postmasters at the forefront of culture today." artnet news, 2020
