William Shearburn Gallery

St. Louis, US

Since 1992, William Shearburn Gallery has focused on the acquisition and exhibition of museum quality modern and contemporary American art.


William Shearburn Gallery’s program is multi-faceted. The gallery represents well known twentieth-century artists while also fostering a commitment to a younger generation of emerging artists. The gallery has mounted countless one person exhibitions over the years - Robert Motherwell, Cayce Zavaglia, Chuck Close, Jane Hammond, Andrew Millner, Bernar Venet, Joe Fyfe, Robert Rauschenberg, Tim Liddy, Joseph Havel, Ellsworth Kelly, Michael Eastman, among many others. Our exhibition program is supplemented by survey and group shows that investigate current themes in contemporary art within historic contexts.


Additionally, the gallery maintains a keen interest in the Post-War secondary market. William Shearburn Gallery actively advises and assists collectors and institutions in the acquisition and sale of artworks. The gallery also helps clients with the logistics of storage, conservation, framing and shipping. With years of experience, William Shearburn Gallery has a strong reputation as secondary market specialists who offer, research and source artworks of exceptionally high quality with discretion.

William Shearburn Gallery is once again excited to be presenting at the IFPDA virtual Spring Fair. We have been a member of the IFPDA for over 20 years and although our gallery program is no longer print specific, we continue to have a keen interest in works on paper and prints.

Some of the booth highlights include brand new monoprint, Scotch Tape Magic Tape by St. Louisan Katherine Bernhardt. Typical of Bernhardt’s practice, Scotch Tape Magic Tape is an expressive example of Bernhardt’s interest in the mundane iconography of contemporary life.

We are also featuring another brand new edition, Mel Bochner's iconic Thank You, a silkscreen printed with iridescent inks that change and shift colors as the viewer moves around the piece.

We are also excited to be exhibiting a brand new print/sculpture edition by Mary Heilmann entitled Geometric Spin. This beautiful and dynamic work is an homage to Heilmann’s fascination and appreciation of Kazamir Malevich.

We are also pleased to present a rich etching and aquatint, Red Sea III, by Robert Motherwell. Made in collaboration with master printer Catherine Mosely, Red Sea III is an exquisite example of Motherwell’s mastery of gestural abstraction.

We very much hope you enjoy our booth selection.
