Acquavella Galleries to Open Palm Beach Exhibition Space

Opening November 1, 2020

Acquavella Galleries announced today its plan to open an additional exhibition location this fall in Palm Beach, Florida. The exhibition space will be located within the Royal Poinciana Plaza, a mid-century architectural highlight of the city. The Palm Beach space will be the gallery’s first physical space outside of New York City in its 99-year history and will host multiple public exhibitions in the coming months.

“The family has had a presence in Palm Beach and South Florida for years and has served as a second home for us. This space will allow us to interact directly with our clientele in the region, and connect with its growing cultural community by bringing our caliber of exhibitions directly to them.” explained Eleanor Acquavella, who is spearheading the project.

The inaugural exhibition for Acquavella Palm Beach will be the group show Masterworks: From Cézanne to Thiebaud, on view November 1 – December 20. Masterworks is currently on view at the Upper East Side location by appointment and on the online viewing room. The gallery is excited to welcome visitors back in a limited capacity to the New York space for Tom Sachs: Handmade Paintings, on view November 5 – December 18, 2020.
