NEW YORK—Ann Freedman, a former director of Knoedler & Company, New York, has announced that in the late spring she will open a new gallery, FreedmanArt, on the third and fourth floors of a townhouse at 25 East 73rd Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side (ANL, 6/29/10). Freedman will feature the work of artists the gallery represents—Lee Bontecou, Frank Stella and the estate of Jules Olitski—and also mount collaborative exhibitions, including special proj­ects and installations.

FreedmanArt’s inaugural exhibition, “Em­bracing Circles: 1959–1960,” will feature work by Olitski. Last fall, Freedman presented a version of the show in collaboration with Hackett Mill gallery, San Francisco. A show of new sculptures and drawings by Bontecou is planned for later this year, to coincide with the artist’s 80th birthday.

“I created FreedmanArt with a vision of working closely with highly accomplished artists in carefully shaping their careers and legacies,” Freedman said in a statement. Freedman resigned from Knoedler in 2009 after a 31-year tenure there (ANL, 11/3/09).
