Ricco/Maresca Gallery

          GALLERY MISSION AND HISTORY - 

Following in the footsteps of the legendary New York dealer Sidney Janis, Ricco/Maresca champions and showcases the art of self-taught masters working outside the continuum of art history. The gallery specializes in Outsider, Self-Taught, Contemporary, and historically significant American Folk art in various media.

Over a period of more than 35 years, Ricco/Maresca has helped blur the lines that have habitually separated conventional art-historical categories and “marginal” art. The gallery has carried out this mission through a pioneering program that emphasizes crossover between vernacular and mainstream traditions, the management of key estates (William Hawkins and Martín Ramírez among them), and seminal books produced with publishing partners such as Alfred A. Knopf, Little Brown and Company, and Pomegranate Press.

Ricco/Maresca Gallery was founded in 1979 on Broome Street, within New York’s then-emerging SoHo gallery district. The gallery relocated to TriBeCa in the 1980s and later moved to Wooster Street in SoHo—which had by then become an established contemporary art hub. In 1997, Ricco/Maresca became one of the first galleries to move to the new Chelsea art district and is currently located at 529 West 20th Street. The gallery participates and has participated in the Armory Show, the Outsider Art Fair (New York and Paris), Metro Curates, Art Chicago, SCOPE (New York and Miami), and AIPAD. We work closely with major museums and collectors, and offer services that range from curatorial advisory to collection management, installation design, and conservation.
