Staley-Wise Gallery was founded by Etheleen Staley and Takouhy Wise in 1981, and opened with a solo exhibition of Horst P. Horst photographs at their original gallery space at 111 Wooster Street in SoHo, New York.  In 1990, the gallery moved to a historic landmarked building at the corner of Prince Street and Broadway which was originally designed by Thomas Stent for John Jacob Astor in 1883.  The gallery remains in the building and expanded the exhibition space in 2017.

Staley-Wise Gallery works with museums, private institutions, and collectors worldwide and continues to exhibit and represent the masters of fashion photography in addition to an extensive collection of Hollywood portraiture, landscape, still-lifes, and nudes. 

Please feel free to visit us when you are in New York City.  Admission is free of charge.
