Since its inception in 2011, Chesterfield Gallery has built a vast and ever-changing collection of some of the most important Contemporary Glass of the 21st Century. The Gallery's collection acts as a living history of glass, offering genres and styles of blown glass from Murano to American flameworking. Maintaining diverse and extensive holdings, the Gallery includes such masters as Chris Ahalt, Joshua Bernbaum, David Colton, Kiva Ford, Sidney Hutter, Yoshinori Kondo, Daisuke Takeuchi, and Christopher Windsor on its roster of artists. More recent additions include Dan Friday and Michael Schunke.
Chesterfield Gallery founder, Simon Abrahms, has been a leading pioneer among gallerists, curators and historians in the creation and development of the modern market for Contemporary Glass. Originally known as Chesterfield Glass Art, Chesterfield Gallery was the first gallery to regularly exhibit flameworking and pipemaking, which are now accepted as important elements in the high-end glass art landscape.
Originating in West Hartford, Connecticut, the Gallery would move to Northampton, Massachusetts, where it featured a flameworking studio and artist-in-residence, David Colton. In 2016, Chesterfield Gallery relocated to 109 Norfolk Street on the Lower East Side of Manhattan and then to its current appointment-only home at East 92nd Street on the Upper East Side. Consistent with its former downtown space, the uptown gallery features a flexible yet intimate space, favoring salon-style pop-up exhibitions overlooking Central Park.
