About N.Y. Gallery Tours

With hundreds of galleries, New York City is the world’s center for contemporary art, and our Founder/ Director has been leading gallery tours for over 20 years.  You can join our scheduled tours on Saturday afternoons, or arrange a private tour any day of the week, just for you and whoever you want to bring.

For these tours, we select newly-opened exhibits of the most extraordinary contemporary art , then explain the artwork and lead the participants in lively discussion.

For artists looking to show in galleries, we also offer Artist Career Consults to help advance their career.


Rafael Risemberg, Ph.D. in art education, founded New York Gallery Tours in 2002.  A college professor for 16 years before leading art tours full time, Rafael was also the art critic for the New York Blade for 3 years.
