ABOUT THE TACHI GALLERY
The Tachi Gallery was founded by filmmaker Joseph Scarpinito to showcase art with a strong foundation in drama,aesthetics and traditional craft. A lifelong art collector whose collection spans thousands of works from around the globe, Joe's passion is for artwork both ancient and modern, which has a classical sense of beauty.
A risk-taker who has been on the winning side of many big bets in the New York arts and real estate scenes, Joe is now betting that there are more New Yorkers like him who are searching for a new take on old-school art values.
Tachi's collection currently includes work by Sasson Soffer, Jean-Pierre Roc-Roussay, Victor Wang, Jeanne Lorioz and photographer Evan Joseph, as well as a rare cache of forty Paul Klee lithographs from the 1920s.
The gallery is located on the corner of Laight and Washington Streets, the heart of historic North Tribeca, on the ground floor of The Pearline Soap Factory.
