Edward Thorp Gallery’s primary focus is to promote the work of emerging and established contemporary artists. It is also known for its diverse program within both the fine and decorative arts, including art glass, ceramics, folk art furniture, outsider and self-taught artists. After 25 years in Soho, the gallery moved in 2000 to a 6,000 sq.ft. space on the sixth floor of the Baron Building at 210 Eleventh Avenue in Chelsea. The Gallery has since relocated to 531 West 26th Street.

Edward Thorp Gallery has also promoted the careers of numerous artists of the twentieth century. Among those are: John Altoon, Christopher Brown, Eugene von Bruenchenhein, Deborah Butterfield, Eric Fischl, April Gornik, Eugene Leroy, Ken Kiff, Konrad Klapheck, Henri Michaux, Beatriz Milhazes, Elie Nadelman, and Richard Phillips.

The gallery now works with, among others, Markus Baenziger, Matthew Blackwell, Katherine Bradford, Neil Farber, June Leaf, Judith Linhares, Judith Simonian, and Shawn Spencer.
