The Bishop Gallery
The Bishop is a contemporary art gallery located in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn NY. Launched in 2012, The Bishop is an offspring of the Lamont Bishop Gallery in Washington DC. The owners, Erwin John and Stevenson Dunn were born and raised in Bed- Stuy. They decided a gallery at homebase was imperative for the ever changing borough.
The original idea for a gallery was birthed from the teachings and mentorship of Dr. Lamont Bishop. He instilled the ethos of business development and community development into the young owners. The Bishop operates with the notion of bringing accessiblity to the art community. Here, everyone is welcomed to view art or have their art displayed regardless of economic status or level of success.

Jumaane N’Namdi, director of N’Namdi Contemporary Miami and N’Namdi Contemporary Chicago, was introduced to the professional art world at the age of six. It was at this time in 1981, when his father, George, founded the G.R. N’Namdi Gallery in Detroit, Mi. Reared in the gallery business and amid an extensive family art collection, Jumaane developed his innate appreciation and understanding for the interrelationship of art, artist and collector.
Upon graduation from Morehouse College in 1997, Jumaane, begin his formal career in the arts at what was then the burgeoning G.R. N’Namdi Gallery Chicago. His discerning eye began to distinguish great pieces from good ones, making it possible for his art patrons to meet world-renowned artists and to develop some of the country’s most prestigious art collections. While under his father’s tutelage, Jumaane quickly assumed the directorship of G.R. N’Namdi Gallery Chicago and subsequently G.R. N’Namdi Gallery New York.
Continuing to forge ahead, Jumaane opened the N’Namdi Contemporary Miami and N’Namdi Contemporary Chicago. He continues to uphold the artistic standards of the master artists he has exhibited in the past, while expanding the gallery’s roster and making N’Namdi Contemporary a home for renowned cutting edge international artists.
