Since 2015, Pamela Andrejev and Everett Mayo have been exhibiting genuine mid-century modernist and abstract art and representing the estates of such artists. Now they can boast a showroom. Their four-gallery and patio space, Andrejev Galleries, opened last November at 105 S. Main St., Louisburg.

As artists, curators and collectors themselves, Andrejev and Mayo like the two dominant mid-century currents, abstraction and surrealism, and have had access to a number of family estates of some mid-century artists. 

Andrejev Galleries features the works of such artists as Edward Christiana, Guy Danella and Helen Lowe Kendall, who found their places in abstract expressionist and non-objective abstract painting. For them, the New York of the 1940s was the dynamic center for new ideas and creative fellowship. 

As the decades unfolded, Speights and Mayo began exhibiting in the ‘60s. A visual intellectual, Speights finds her voice in op art, while Mayo finds his in surrealism. Photographer and gallery partner Andrejev has been exhibiting her work since the ‘80s. 

In addition to a brick and mortar location, the gallery has an online presence at andrejevgalleries.com, where clients can find a carefully selected inventory of modernist originals and explore print options. Online, clients have a wall preview where they can try out their selections in various home and office settings. 

Andrejev Galleries is open Thursday through Saturday, 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. and 4 to 6 p.m., and on Sundays from 2 to 5 p.m.

The space is currently hosting, through April 21, an exhibit by locally known artist Billy Farmer, who has created commissioned work for a number of Warren County residents. Farmer formerly maintained studio space in a building on Main Street in Warrenton. He works in acrylics, oils and watercolors.
