    About Pellas Gallery

    Pellas Gallery is a contemporary art gallery located in Boston, MA whose primary goal is to discover the best new emerging artists with a focus on local talent. Pellas also has a commitment to showcasing global talent, exhibiting works from prominent West Coast artists as well as international works from Japan, the UK, China and more. F Alfredo Pellas IV and Isabel Arguello are partners at Pellas Gallery and art collectors themselves.


    Pellas and Arguello view every work at the Gallery as both an object of beauty and as an appreciating investment for collectors. Pellas decided to take the risk of opening the largest gallery on Newbury Street in Boston in November of 2019, because both Pellas and Arguello saw there was something new their beloved city of Boston needed in its growing arts scene.


    Both Pellas and Arguello gained an eye for art through training and traveling the world with presidents of art advisories and senior art directors to see all the most important art fairs from KIAF in Seoul, to Art Basel Hong Kong, to Frieze and the Armory Show in London. This helped them develop a keen eye of appreciation for contemporary art culture and the current market to be able to make investment decisions on their own. Many of the artists Pellas has collected have appreciated tenfold; Pellas also collects the artists the gallery represents. The mission of Pellas Gallery is to give the people of Boston the opportunity to buy the latest and best new contemporary art from around the world.
