Note: Samuel Dorsky (1914-1994) opened Dorsky Gallery in 1963 in New York City and it remained in operation continuously until 2001. In its almost 40 year run, the gallery exhibited or represented scores of artists, including Nathan Oliveira. During his lifetime, Dorsky donated thousands of works of art to academic institutions and made generous contributions to benefit handicapped children. When the gallery closed in 2001, Dorsky's children established Dorsky Gallery Curatorial Programs, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting contemporary art to the public and continuing their father's philanthropic legacy. Dorsky's lead gift to SUNY New Paltz resulted in the creation of the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art in the center of the college campus.
