Operating from the Chelsea section of New York City since 1999, MIYAKO YOSHINAGA recently relocated to an elegant Upper East townhouse space. Over the last two decades, the gallery has flourished as a premier showcase to promote established, mid-career, and emerging international artists with a focus on innovation and cross-boundary practices. MIYAKO YOSHINAGA also was and continues to be at the forefront in New York of establishing Japanese Photography as a viable and vital component in the international art arena. She introduced artists such as Issei Suda and Ken Ohara and fostered younger artists such as Emi Anrakuji and Yojiro Imasaka who have continued to gain in reputation and demand. MIYAKO YOSHINAGA values integrity and a close working relationship with artists and clients, while proudly serving the local and international art community through art fairs and collaborations with other galleries and institutions. The gallery provides an intimate and personal environment that is welcoming to both the seasoned and novice art collector and Miyako and her staff are on hand to provide information and background to the artists and their work. The gallery's belief in the longevity of art is evident by represented artists included in the collections of numerous renowned institutions such as The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and The Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.
