Gallery History


Established in 1990, the James Cox Gallery at Woodstock is the culmination of forty years of professional experience in the field of American Art.  The owners have a long history of accomplishment dating from 1972 when The Cox Gallery first opened in Allentown, New Jersey.  In 1976, James Cox moved to New York City and assumed the position of director of the venerable Grand Central Art Galleries, a position he held until December 1989.

Seeking a more rural environment while maintaining ties to Manhattan, Cox established a compound in the historic art colony of Woodstock, New York.  On an expansive site, visitors are able to enjoy outdoor sculpture gardens, the Goetz studio and modern gallery facilities all surrounded by the Little Beaverkill Creek (renowned for trout fishing).

The gallery’s focus is on twentieth century (and now twenty-first century) American Art.  An extensive inventory includes works from the estates of five American painters and sculptors.  Additional selections of historic American art are always available and change weekly. James Cox represents the work of several fine artists.  See “Active Artists” for an overview.

The gallery is perhaps the only full-service art gallery in the Hudson Valley and, as such, offers myriad services including appraisals, restoration, estate management, auctions, research and consultancy in most areas of American art.
