O'Delle Abney (featured to the right holding the camera) is a former gallery owner (WORLD FINE ART GALLERY 1992-2010), artist (MFA in Painting from CARNEGIE-MELLON UNIVERSITY), agent (WORLD FINE ART AGENCY) and videographer (NYC GALLERY OPENINGS).
NYC GALLERY OPENINGS got it's start when O'Delle was reaching out to galleires in primarily the Chelsea Art District of Manhattan where his former gallery was located. He used video recordings of gallery openings as a means of networking himself to local galleries to find exhibition opportunities for the WFA agency artists.
As the videos gained recognition soon galleries were asking for monthly coverage of their shows. As a result a subscription service was born in addition to complimentary coverage of shows of interest.
