Nicolas Auvray Gallery, formerly known as Galerie L'Atelier, is a vibrant art gallery located on 23rd street in Chelsea, New York. With its dynamic exhibitions and engaging programs, the Gallery strives to create an environment that sparks dialogue, inspires creativity, and fosters a sense of community within the art world, rooted in humanist and existentialist values.

Nicolas Auvray Gallery has evolved rapidly to feature an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary art forms, including paintings, sculptures, photography, mixed media, and installations, creating a visual tapestry that reflects the richness and complexity of the human experience.

After a successful corporate life as an executive and whilst developing a recognized photographic body of work, Nicolas Auvray wanted to showcase other talents he was crossing paths with. From there emerged a network of artists that formed the core of the gallery and continues to grow and evolve.

From emerging talents to established names, visitors can expect to encounter a spectrum of styles, themes, and techniques that will captivate their senses and provoke thought. Core themes that the gallery has developed thus far revolve around the relationship to Nature and Elements, developing a strong base of abstract art, and work looking at the human body and form.

The gallery endeavors to find young or developing talents and enable them to develop their language through gallery exhibitions and art fairs. For instance the gallery proposes Clement Denis, Marie-Chloe Duval, or Gerard Stricher in the USA. The gallery is also proud to represent established masters such as Anne Manoli, Marco Cingolani, Francois Weil, Peter Cassagrande, Eric Ceccarini or Jehsong Baak. In the last years the Gallery has also extensively partnered with European artists to showcase their work in the USA. In parallel, the gallery is committed to representing artists from various cultural, ethnic, and social backgrounds, providing them with a platform to showcase their work and connect with a wider audience and broadening the gallery’s artistic resonance.
