BEDFORD ART GALLERY
Bedford Art Gallery is an online art gallery and exhibition space that was founded by Jessica Leigh in 2016 and located in Brooklyn, New York.
Leigh holds a B.A. in Fine Arts, Studio from The University of Texas at Austin and has over a decade of experience curating private and corporate collections globally.
She most recently held the position of Sales Manager for the global online auction platform Bidsquare in New York City. Prior to Bidsquare Leigh was an Auction Specialist in Post War & Contemporary Art with a specialization in Prints and Multiples at Artnet Auctions in New York City. Prior to joining Artnet, Jessica worked as an Art Consultant for Martin Lawrence Galleries in NYC and Weinstein Gallery in San Francisco. Leigh was a member of the Brooklyn Museum Council for Feminist Art and Contemporary Art in 2015-2017. Her experience, expertise and passion for art have naturally progressed to the creation of Bedford Art Gallery.
Bedford Art Gallery encompasses Leigh’s love for both Street Art and Fine Art. BAG will be exhibiting works by both established, emerging and local artists. The gallery provides an exhibition space for the NYC community that began on Bedford Avenue in Bedford-Stuyveston, “Bed-Stuy” Brooklyn and is now located in the similarly culturally thriving and creative area of Red Hook, Brooklyn. BAG has already provided both local and international creatives with a much needed space to practice and exhibit their talents. BAG has held Pop-Up exhibitions for local NYC city street artists What will you leave behind and El Sol. Bedford Art Gallery has also sponsored educational culinary events “The Art of Raw Food” with Holistic Chef and Educator Kim Brewer from Australia.
With the launch of the online store, a collection of rare street and pop art works are now available for sale by: Keith Haring, Mr. Brainwash, Warhol, Banksy, KAWS among several others. Just ask!
