TIMELINE

   

Creating a new standard in services for the art collecting community.

Founded in 2003 in Jersey City, NJ, Mana Fine Arts is led by founder and director Eugene Lemay. A prominent business leader with more than 30 years experience, as well as an artist himself, Lemay built Mana Fine Arts into a high-end art handling firm throughout the 2000s.

In 2010, Mana Fine Arts secured a new, 2 million-square-foot, 35-acre campus at 888 Newark Avenue, and plans developed for an in-house crate shop, frame shop, and customizable storage and shipping capabilities. At the same time, Lemay envisioned galleries where private collections could be shown and studios where artists of all disciplines could work alongside each other.

In May of 2011, the company split into two entities: Mana Fine Arts, which provides full-service arts management to the contemporary art world, and Mana Contemporary, which curates world-class exhibitions, initiates enriching public programming, and organizes selective artist residencies. Together, Mana Fine Arts and Mana Contemporary provide all of the services and programming to make the world's first fully integrated arts organization committed to the artistic process. Recent expansions include Mana Contemporary Chicago and Mana Contemporary Wynwood (Miami). Today, Mana Fine Arts is known worldwide for its advanced techniques, international network, and dedicated staff.
