Arcadia Fine Arts was founded in 2001 with a mission to exhibit highly skilled, representational artists. Originally located in the center of Manhattan’s creative, Soho District, the gallery attained international renown for featuring works that revealed their creators’ ability to paint and draw well in concert with unique, signature styles. In 2014 the organization evolved into Arcadia Contemporary. This shift of name and focus was motivated by the gallery's desire to spotlight artists who, while using timeless painting and drawing techniques, were focused on creating imagery reflective of the contemporary world.
In 2016 Arcadia Contemporary relocated to Southern California and found a permanent home on Colorado Boulevard, the famed, shopping street in Pasadena’s historic, Old Town District.
Now, after 5 years of featuring extraordinary, representational artwork on the West Coast, Arcadia is delighted to return to New York City in the Spring of 2021 with a new, showcase gallery on West Broadway in the very heart of Soho’s art district. Arcadia Contemporary proudly maintains its commitment to presenting virtuoso, realist works from an international array of artists who are creating genuinely unique, timeless and collectible artwork.
