Half Gallery was established by Bill Powers in 2008, on the Lower East Side. In 2013 the Galley moved to the Upper East Side, NYC, above the boutique owned by his wife- fashion designer Cynthia Rowley. The husband-and-wife duo founded Exhibition A in 2010, which produces Limited Edition Prints and Objects by Contemporary Artists. Additionally, Powers contributes regularly to ARTnews and the French fashion magazine Purple.
