Former Wall Streeter Uses Investment Savvy to Sell Art in Purchase

Chappaqua’s Kenny Ackerman’s focus is on “investment-quality art” by well-known artists.

With the Neuberger Museum in Purchase, the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers, and even a children’s museum in Rye, there is no shortage of art in our county. Now Purchase boasts a newly expanded collection of modern, contemporary, and Impressionist art by world-renowned artists at Ackerman’s Fine Art Gallery.

Chappaqua resident Kenny Ackerman founded Ackerman’s Fine Art in 2010, after a 20-year career as a Wall Street trader. He recently expanded his gallery to include 3,500 sq ft of 19th- and 20th-century works by artists such as Cassigneul, Chagall, and Warhol.

Ackerman’s focus is on “investment-quality art” by well-known artists, rather than emerging art (by lesser-known living artists). “I think you will be hard-pressed to find another gallery in Westchester that carries the quality of art we do,” says Ackerman. Artwork in his gallery ranges from pieces worth $25,000 to $3 million.

With his blended knowledge of finance and art, Ackerman offers his international and domestic clients personalized expert advice and full transparency. While some of his clients are investors, most of his collectors simply love art. “I love educated collectors because it makes my job easier, but there is a level of satisfaction I get from educating people and helping them build great collections.”
