About Hexton Gallery Aspen
Hexton Gallery Aspen opened its doors in 2018 with a solo exhibition and large-scale mural project for artist and activist Shepard Fairey. The gallery moved to its newly-renovated location at 477 E. Cooper Ave in 2021 with an expanded program from today's leading mid-career and established contemporary talent. In addition to its annual exhibitions and art fair participation, the gallery publishes and represents artists and institutional projects in the areas of editioned printmaking, sculpture, and artist books.
Hexton was founded by Robert Chase in 1995, expanding upon the Chase family's long-standing role in gallery development, artist representation, and extensive work in 20th century master prints and figurative sculpture. The original gallery was located at 78th and Madison on New York's Upper East Side, moving to Chicago several years later. Upon its relocation, the gallery focused primarily on funding artist projects and co-producing exhibitions for galleries and institutions internationally. In addition, Hexton’s Art Advisory assisted collectors in the acquisition and sale of significant post-war and contemporary paintings.
