ABOUT HW GALLERY
WHO WE ARE
We are Naples, Florida’s most prominent art dealers, offering work by highly recognized modern and contemporary masters. Our presentations are exciting because they closely reflect art held in high regard in important galleries in New York, Chicago, West Coast and Europe.
In business sixteen years, HW Gallery delights in finding and offering works by Pablo Picasso, Robert Rauschenberg, Frank Stella, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Jim Dine, Joan Miro, Marc Chagall, Alex Katz, Alexander Calder, Marcus Jansen and others of high reputation. The Gallery also exhibits new paintings by abstractionists Mark Dickson, Ted Lincoln, Veron Ennis and others.
Owner Lauren Greenough and her Daughter Emily Greenough, work closely together.

How does Lauren Greenough define modern art? “Modern painting and sculpture have had a history of over a century. Through color, surface treatment, shape on a flat surface or with form in three-dimensional sculpture, modern art offers an exciting simplicity of technique or rendering, conveying unique ideas and elements through various styles from cubism to the present.”
Abstract art often avoids three-dimensional realism, she said, but may contain realistic elements handled in non-realistic ways. Colors and forms are individual artists’ unique choices. Lauren Greenough, familiar since childhood with abstract art, defines fine art as visual work created by artists solely for esthetic appreciation. This is not to be confused with commercial art used in business products, although pop artists used its designs, like Warhol’s Campbell Soup cans, in their work to break the hold of abstract expressionism in the 1960s.
Lauren Greenough, who worked in private art galleries before opening HW Gallery in 2000, is completely absorbed by her interest in today’s art and has passed this awareness on to her daughter Emily Greenough. Emily wrote an early school paper on Robert Rauschenberg, who exhibited in the gallery. Emily’s teacher declared the paper a model of its kind. Emily also studied art in college and has years of gallery experience curating exhibitions as well as selling, packaging and shipping art.
The art that mother(Lauren) and daughter (Emily) team offer is highly valued in the art world and often increases in value.
Hi I’m Emily Greenough and have been in love with the art world for as long as I can remember. From a young age seeing the beautiful pieces of art my Uncle Thomas created to the art my grandparents collected. I have also taken every art class in school that I could.
I have been fortunate in my life to have met and visited many artists and their studios. I have enjoyed being involved with some of the most influential artists of our time from Robert Rauschenberg, Darryl Pottorf, Frank Stella, Tony Bennett, Helen Frankenthaler, Dale Chihuly, Romero Britto, Chuck Close, Christo & Jeanne-Claude. I even have been able to meet Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s grandson. I have also been able to be involved with the up and coming artists of my generation as Marcus Jansen and many others.
