YARES ART GALLERIES were founded in 1964 by Riva Yares in Scottsdale, Arizona. In 1991 Yares Art established a second gallery in Santa Fe, NM. In 2016 the gallery expanded to Palm Springs, CA and New York, NY. In 2019, Yares Art added 4000 square feet of exhibition space to its 5th Avenue NY venue. The primary focus of the gallery is Abstract Expressionism paintings from the 1950s and 1960s, with a strong focus on the Color Field School.
