Kristy Bryce has been named gallery director at Eykyn Maclean in New York. Previously she had been the director of Craig F. Starr Gallery since 1998.
“Chris and I are thrilled that Kristy has joined us,” said Nicholas Maclean. “She will be expanding our exhibition program in New York and London, and with the wealth of knowledge and experience she brings, she will also focus on consignments and sales.”
During Ms. Bryce’s thirteen years at Craig F. Starr Gallery, she instituted a highly respected exhibition program focused on Postwar American Art. Notable exhibitions include Jasper Johns: Ink on Plastic, for which she co-wrote the catalogue with Nan Rosenthal; Robert Rauschenberg Silkscreen Paintings; Chuck Close Drawings of the 1970s; and Willem de Kooning Women, among others. She is the author of a catalogue raisonné of Charles Sheeler’s graphic works, and has published on Johns, Rauschenberg, and Barnett Newman. Ms. Bryce holds a B.A. in Art History from Columbia University, and is currently pursuing a doctorate in Art History at the CUNY Graduate Center.
The appointment of Kristy Bryce as director continues the momentum at Eykyn Maclean, whose inaugural exhibition, In Giacometti’s Studio — An Intimate Portrait, curated by Michael Peppiatt, opened to critical acclaim last fall. Ms. Bryce will oversee a program of regular exhibitions at the gallery.
Eykyn Maclean is a private gallery based in New York and London that specializes in museum-quality Impressionist and 20th century European and American Art. Christopher Eykyn and Nicholas Maclean established the gallery in 2006 after a combined 29 years at Christie’s, where they were co-heads of the Impressionist and Modern Art department.
