FOLEY brings together fine line and obsessive precision in the disciplines of drawing, cut paper, painting, and photography.

Michael Foley opened Foley Gallery in the fall of 2004 after several years of working with notable photography galleries including Fraenkel Gallery, Howard Greenberg Gallery, and Yancey Richardson Gallery.



Although Foley Gallery is no longer accepting submissions, we have an initiative for photographers that includes portfolio and career development options:  The Photo Community

Michael Foley


Michael Foley was born in Delaware and grew up in Croton-on-Hudson, New York.  He opened his gallery in the fall of 2004 after fourteen years of working with notable photography galleries, including Fraenkel, Howard Greenberg, and Yancey Richardson.

Art and photography have been a passion since his high school days as a staff yearbook photographer.  His personal art-making practice is equally inspired by collage, cut paper, and painting.  In 2006, he brought artists within these disciplines to the list of exhibiting gallery artists.

Foley went on to co-found The Exhibition Lab in the fall of 2009.  He is the founder of The Photo Community, which regularly offers workshops and critiques for photographers.  He gives guidance to fine art photographers in his weekly newsletter, The Photographer's Report on Substack.


Foley continues his interest in educating by serving on the School of Visual Arts faculty and the International Center of Photography, where he teaches and lectures on issues in contemporary photography.
