Historical Note:
The Lorence-Monk Gallery, founded in 1985 by Susan Lorence and Robert Monk was located at 568-578 Broadway, in the SoHo section of New York City. Prior to establishing the gallery, Susan Lorence was the American Director of the Petersburg Press and Robert Monk was the Director of Castelli Graphics.

The Lorence-Monk Gallery promoted the work of contemporary and emerging artists, featuring a diverse selection of paintings, prints, sculptures, and photographs. The gallery held rotating exhibits organized by theme, individual artists, and group shows. Among the younger generation of artists represented by the gallery were: John Beerman, Jasper Johns, Jürgen Partenheimer, Alan Saret, Carole Seborovski, Alan Uglow, and Günter Umberg.

Beginning with its inaugural show "A Print Survey, 1960-1985," the Lorence-Monk Gallery became a major venue for the graphic arts, including lithographs, etchings, screenprints, and woodcuts. Exhibitions featured the work of prominent artists, many who had worked in other media, such as Richard Artschwager, David Hockney, Jasper Johns, Bruce Nauman, and Barnett Newman.

The gallery's exhibitions included sculpture and object installations, offering the works of Kim Jones, Laurie Parsons, Ursula von Rydingsvard, Sandy Skoglund, and others. The Lorence-Monk Gallery promoted independent publishers of prints, portfolios, and books, including Peter Blum Editions, Diane Villani Editions, and the Universal Limited Art Editions (ULAE). Several exhibitions were organized by independent curators, such as Marvin Heiferman, Clarissa Dalyrymple, and Christopher Sweet. Also there were exhibitions held in conjunction with other galleries, including Leo Castelli Graphics, Jim Kempner Fine Art, and the Robert Miller Gallery.

The gallery closed in 1992. Susan Lorence continues to work as a New York-based independent dealer. Robert Monk is Director at the Gagosian Gallery in New York City.
