A Brooklyn native, Richard Michelson is a prizewinning poet and children’s book author who settled in Northampton 30 years ago. Now several of the artists he represents are nationally known and many more have helped turn his into a ‘destination gallery’.”

“R. Michelson Galleries represents America's most respected sculptors, painters and printmakers. The corporate division has decorated hundreds of spaces, from law offices and restaurants to hospitals and colleges...Michelson has helped to launch and still consults to a number of galleries across the U.S. Northampton is his home base and he is more excited than ever about the increasing stature of the city as a recognized, lively center for the fine arts.”

Richard Michelson is “one of the region’s most important arts advocates.”

—The Valley Advocate “Best Art Gallery Citation”— Reader’s Poll

The R. Michelson Gallery in the center of Northampton's Main Street is … a palatial showcase of the region's finest illustrators/artists and a testament of one man's devotion to a standard of excellence and reverent affection for a handful of iconic artistic practitioners.
