Cheryl McGinnis of the Cheryl McGinnis Gallery! As an art dealer who in 1995 began one of the first "contemporary" salons in NYC, Cheryl McGinnis has always offered viewers an opportunity to participate in gallery talks, artists' studio visits, conversations with critics and curators alike. Says McGinnis, "The tradition of our contemporary salon continues. We feel strongly that art should be accessible to the public in order to further the discussion of contemporary art and art history."
