Yares Art Galleries were originally founded in 1964 by Riva Yares in Scottsdale, Arizona. In 1991, a second gallery was opened in the historic city of Santa Fe, New Mexico. In 2016, Yares Art inaugurated its largest gallery space at 745 5th Avenue in New York. Additionally, a mid-century modern home was built in Palm Springs, California, to host private viewings and events. The primary focus of the gallery is Abstract Expressionism paintings from the 1950s and 1960s, with a concentration on the Color Field School.
