A Chelsea Gem – A friend and fellow art lover, recommended I check out Primavera Gallery on one of my frequent gallery visits to NYC. I am happy to say that I was not disappointed.
It is an elegant and unassuming space - the better to show off some exquisite pieces - art deco furniture, paintings, Italian glass etc. I personally was quite taken with the jewelry which included seminal pieces by greats like Suzanne Belperron, Buccellati, Cartier, and Boivin among others.
To my luck, the charming and knowledgable Ms. Friedman was there that day and she spent a great deal of time answering my questions and telling me fascinating stories about each and every piece that caught my eye. It was a real treat to have one-on-one time with an expert who shared my enthusiasm.
After my trip, I checked out the gallery blog and was pleased to see that they do very informative little articles on a regular basis. I intend to make Primavera a regular stop on my trips to Chelsea. In the meantime, I will tide myself over with visits to the blog.
Primavera Galleries: perhaps the most elegant gallery in NYC – A curator friend referred me to this beautiful gallery when I recently visited New York City. I was greeted by a pleasant young woman who introduced me to the owners. It was a sunny day, and the large white space sparkled with light from the windows facing the Hudson River, setting off the beautiful and unusual collections of art deco furniture, paintings, vases and other objects. I was especially taken with the magnificent jewelry collection. Ms Friedman, an owner, took time to show me some of the most magnificent pieces. Her courtesy and expertise were most helpful. I bought a ring, a special gift for a special person. I'm planning to visit Primavera Galleries whenever I come to New York.
I highly recommend a visit to one of NYC's "gems."
A visit to Primavera Gallery is a must!! – I was just searching for nice place to take my daughter, who is coming in from out of town for the holidays, and came across this review for Primavera Gallery which I whole-heartedly disagree with. I have been a client of this wonderful gallery for many, many years and have NEVER had a bad experience. I have never encountered any rudeness or any unpleasant situation in this gallery. Everybody has always been very nice. I must say that I miss them so since they left Madison Ave- I just loved their beautiful windows always full of pretty things but they are now in Chelsea and I always look forward to my visits. Their spacious gallery is full of beautiful furniture and objects and breath-taking jewelry. A visit to this gallery is a must for anyone who loves beautiful things.
Regarding Primavera Gallery – I am the owner of Primavera Gallery, and I cannot believe the vile and disgusting "review" from Museum Girl (who is not a girl - I know who this person is). This was written by a disturbed person who has a grudge against us, and is trying to do us harm. We have been in business for over 40 years, and enjoy an enviable reputation, and we NEVER have sales.
The Rudest Place In New York City in 35 years of Collecting – I asked a friend of mine to go down town to see this gallery but she warned me that when they were on Madison Avenue, she had a terrible experience with rude staff.
Since I heard they were having a 50% off sale, I went alone. I have never seen or heard such rudeness nor terrible screaming anywhere in any store or gallery in my life!
The owner , who had a strong accent was screaming at this woman and yelling so nastily I really thought about calling the police. I was shaking and felt sick to my stomach that such abuse was taking place. The whole gallery had a horrid atmosphere. Why do such people exist and why did this woman not leave? I really felt so bad for her. Terrible.......
