In the next month new paintings, limited edition prints and drawings, alongside retrospective work, will be displayed in dedicated exhibition spaces in Glasgow, Newcastle upon Tyne and New York City – three cities where Alex has already had highly successful museum exhibitions.
The popularity of his work in these three cities (and in other post-industrial cities) can partly be attributed to his depiction of everyday characters, blue-collar workers and brooding, romantic industrial landscapes.
Alex has already opened his permanent gallery in New York City on 5th Avenue in Manhattan’s prestigious Chelsea Flatiron district.
As Alex’s first permanent exhibition space, the gallery will display orginals and limited edition prints of the most sought-after paintings from his ‘Everyday Heroes NYC’ paintings and sketches, alongside works from the ‘Youth and Manhood’ and ‘Gadgies’ collections.
“The opportunity to open in New York arose from my successful Fire Department New York Museum and pop-up exhibition of ‘Everyday Heroes NYC’ work. Working closely with the NYC Fire Museum – Official Museum of FDNY, and with the Vulcan Society, which promotes diversity in the Fire Department, I created a series of paintings of firefighters and their families that resonated strongly with New Yorkers”.
“The reception my work received, and the opportunity of a superb gallery space in Chelsea, prompted me to realise my dream of having a gallery for my own work in Manhattan” said Alex “and I’m looking forward to the New York gallery going from strength to strength”.
Located between 19th and 20th Street at 144 5th Avenue in Manhattan, the Alexander Millar Fine Art gallery is now open and is welcoming friends and collectors, old and new.
New York Gallery Opening Hours:
Mondays & Tuesdays – closed
Wednesdays to Saturdays – 11am – 6pm
Sundays – 11am – 5pm
The Alexander Millar pop-up gallery will return to Glasgow’s Princes Square on Buchanan Street for November and December. Fans will be able to enjoy (and purchase) pieces from his signature ‘Gadgies’ collection, the ‘Tide and Time’ portfolio, ‘Youth and Manhood’ works and paintings, drawings and prints from recent work that features golfers.
The third exhibition this year is a permanent display of work in Newcastle upon Tyne’s newest art gallery, with a dedicated exhibition space for Alexander Millar paintings and sketches. The Hancock Gallery (opening November 2018) is only a stone’s throw away from The Hancock Museum – the city’s most famous museum.
“This new gallery, in a completely renovated townhouse, also gives me the opportunity to display highly sought-after sculptures and paintings from my private collection” said Alex.
