Rachel Uffner is the founder and director of Rachel Uffner Gallery since September of 2008. Uffner has been hailed as a front-runner of the resurging lower East Side art scene. She opened her eponymous gallery on the Lower East Side in September of 2008. Her rigor and tenacity have paid off. In the last six years, she has built an impressive selection of artists, whom she trusts to conceive interesting, original shows, and who in turn trust her feedback and judgment on their work. Two were featured in the 2014 Whitney Biennial. Earlier this year she relocated to a much larger Lower East Side space.
Uffner's ascent is based on her keen eye, her integrity, and her passion for artistic dialogue. Her curated exhibitions draw from contemporary as well as art historical sources, always reflecting the rigor of someone who is constantly looking and thinking about art from multiple directions.
After graduating from Washington University in St. Louis in 2000 with a bachelor’s degree in art history and painting, she earned a coveted job at Christie's. She found her calling in galleries when she started as a receptionist at the now defunct D'Amelio Terras in Chelsea, working her way up to director.

Major support for the exhibition is provided by the Nancy Hyatt Liddle Fund for the Arts of The Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region.

Additional support was provided by Office of the President and Office of the Provost, The University at Albany Foundation, the Alumni Association through the Grandma Moses Fund, University Auxiliary Services, the Ellsworth Kelly Foundation, Michael A. Boots in honor of Ann C. Mataraso, Carol F. Bullard, and William and Stevi Swire.
