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 you may find of interest: the Exhibition Lab


We have also started a "virtual" mentorship and coaching program.  If you would like to learn more about this opportunity, please email the gallery and we will send you all the information that you need.  The program includes portfolio and career development options.

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.

Photography has 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 theses disciplines to the list of exhibiting gallery artists.

Foley went on to co-found The Exhibition Lab in the fall of 2009.  The Ex Lab is a study center for people involved in various aspects of fine art photography. 


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