Richard Timperio: The Dual Life of a Pioneer

Richard Timperio is a rarity because while he is painter of compelling imagery he is also a pioneering gallerist. In the late 1970s he was at the forefront of a small group of artists who left Manhattan to settle in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. By the mid 1990s he had created an alternative exhibition space as an “off-Broadway” production — he called it Williamsburg’s "Sideshow" to Manhattan. Over the years he has fostered the careers of many emerging artists while balancing his exhibitions with the more established New York School abstract artists. While he always painted, he sublimated his own work to promote that of his artists. We are pleased to show what has been until recently a private side of his life in art.
