Jonathan Ferrara Gallery is proud to announce that as of January 1st 2024, the gallery name has changed to FERRARA SHOWMAN GALLERY with the ascension of long time gallery director Matthew Weldon Showman to full partner.
Jonathan Ferrara Gallery was founded in 1998 by artist and activist Jonathan Ferrara as a forum for the exchange of creative ideas from artists working in mediums from painting to sculpture to video and installation art. Over its 25 year history the gallery has fostered a national and international reputation for discovering, embracing, and promoting artists from New Orleans, the United States, and around the world. The gallery has played an instrumental part in helping New Orleans become an international destination for contemporary art.
Gallery director Matthew Weldon Showman has been an integral part of the gallery’s success and growth since joining the gallery in 2011. With a keen eye for great talent, an enthusiasm for artist development, and exceptional skills in cultivating and advising clients, Showman has become an invaluable asset to the gallery. And thus, his ascension to full partner is a natural evolution in his role at the gallery.
As the gallery embarks on a new chapter and a new name, Jonathan Ferrara and Matthew Showman remain committed to continuing to develop new artists, further the careers of the gallery’s established artists, and present new and exciting thought-provoking exhibitions. The gallery will remain in its current location in the heart of the Arts District New Orleans and will continue to work with artists and clients around the world.
