Offer Waterman opened his first gallery space in Chelsea, London in 1996. Now based in a five-storey building in the heart of Mayfair, the gallery has developed an international following for its exceptional 20th Century and Contemporary art.
Previously the historic William Morris & Co showroom, the new gallery at St. George Street provides a reposeful and understated exhibition space on three floors, with a library and research centre on the fourth. The gallery's experienced and approachable team are dedicated to helping collectors, at all levels, develop remarkable and individual art collections.
Offer Waterman places considerable importance on the production and delivery of historical exhibitions. From Frank Auerbach, Early Works in 2012, to the 2015 presentation of David Hockney, Early Drawings and the 2016 exhibition Robert Rauschenberg: Transfer Drawings from the 1960s and 1970s. Offer Waterman is a benefactor of museums and arts organizations and has provided support to numerous museum exhibitions, most recently the Tate's David Hockney retrospective.
After twenty years in business, the gallery's primary aim remains the same - the sourcing and presentation of exceptional works of art. We are continually expanding our inventory and over the coming years we hope to offer an innovative exhibition programme which will complement our participation at the major international art fairs.
