About

Daniel Cooney Fine Art is a contemporary art gallery in Chelsea specializing in photographs and illustration.

We opened our first office in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in August, 2003 and in June of 2004 we relocated to the Chelsea District of Manhattan. Our goal is to exhibit emerging and under recognized artists and to further the career of the select group of artists that we represent. We are dedicated to making both primary and secondary market material available to the collecting community at affordable prices.

We seek to represent artists that are beginning their journey as art makers or artists that have committed their lives to their work but have not exhibited extensively. The artists we represent are varied and approach the process of art making differently. The key element that all of our artist’s posses is a maturity, sincerity and dedication to their work and their lives as artists.

We pursue many avenues to ensure the success of the artists and the gallery. We work with many important private, public and corporate collections in addition to art consultants and our fellow dealers. Additionally, we conduct online auctions of secondary market material in partnership with iGavel.com so that we can better support the exhibition schedule at the gallery. Through the accessibility of the internet our auctions introduce us to many new collectors and dealers from all over the world.

Daniel Cooney has over twenty years of experience as a gallerist, curator, auction specialist and instructor. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the State University of New York at New Paltz and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He has also taken appraisal classes at NYU. He taught photography at the School of Visual Arts, Parsons, The Fashion Institute of Technology and the University of Illinois and has lectured widely on contemporary and historical photography. He began his gallery career at the James Danziger Gallery and continued as Associate Director of the Julie Saul Gallery. Before opening Daniel Cooney Fine Art he was the Director of Online Photographs at Sotheby’s.
