Brenda’s interest in the arts was sparked as a child attending small-scale antique auctions with her great aunt and uncle. Since then, her passion for the arts has grown exponentially. Taylor opened her first gallery in Boston’s historic Back Bay at 81 Newbury Street in 1991. After four years on Newbury Street, Taylor relocated to New York City; first at 584 Broadway and then moving into 529 W. 20th Street.
Taylor has been a guest speaker at numerous academic institutions, including Brown University, University of Massachusetts, Cue Art Foundation, New York Foundation for the Arts and San Jose State University.
Brenda Taylor Gallery has appeared on BRAVO’s Gallery Girls as well as participated in numerous art fairs such as Art Miami and Seafair.
