Waterfall Gallery presents “Sea Beyond”, a Makoto Fujimura solo exhibition. It will feature Fujimura’s recent works, a monumental “Sea Beyond”, a 33’ triptych done only with Japanese oyster shell “gofun“ executed in Brehm, Fujimura’s studio in Pasadena, and “Golden Sea - A New Song”, which took two years to complete in Fujimura’s Princeton studio with unique gold/silk layering technique. Also included in the exhibit are brand new “Walking Upon Sea” large painting, small watercolor series “Mercy’s Gardens”, and Lichtenstein editions of new silkscreen “Golden Sea” prints.





Hidden away as a gem in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, is the Waterfall Mansion & Gallery. Kate Shin, founder and developer, envisioned a space that brought art into the frame of lifestyle: "Artful Living." 

Before the being converted into the contemporary art gallery it is today, 170 E 80th Street was home to Leslie and D.D. Tillett, two of the most influential textile designers of the postwar era. Their prints were associated with the likes of Claire McCardell and Jacqueline KennedyFor two generations, the Tillett family artisans and craftsmen used the carriage house as a residence and studio since the 40's. In honor of the heritage of the property, Kate Shin designed the facade directly from a painting of the original building. The home was redesigned to be a state of the art modern gallery. With five floors including a professional grade kitchen, spacious terrace, and rooftop with a skyline view, every area of the house was designed to house prolific contemporary artworks in the context of a high-end modern home. 

Each room is thoughtfully curated with Sculpture, Paintings, Photography, Mixed Media, Installations, Ceramics, and Video Arts. The 20-foot indoor waterfall provides a stunning impact while giving the entire gallery space a peaceful and unique environment for art viewing. 

A breathtaking 22 foot indoor waterfall serves as the heart of the gallery space.

Our vision is to create dynamic and powerful artful experiences by working with the artists to create prolific contemporary work.  We then work to curate exhibitions that showcase and tell provocative and strong stories and empower people through art education. We build a platform to connect artists to the top 1% of collectors, culture and taste makers, and international opportunities.
