The Joy Moos Gallery THE JOY MOOS GALLERY was established in 1967 in Montréal where it was originally known as GALERIE MOOS. Founded by her late husband Walter A. Moos (Wally), Joy Moos became co-director following their marriage. The gallery was active in Montréal until 1975.

In 1977, Joy moved to Miami, Florida, where she opened a small gallery in the Design District. In 1983, MOOSART INTERNATIONAL moved into a space designed by the renowned Miami-based architects, Arquitectonica. Later, the Joy Moos Gallery moved into a 3000 sq.ft. warehouse space, and worked from that location until Joy left Miami in 1999.

Originally exhibiting works by 20th Century Masters, incl.

Picasso, Calder, Miro, and Nevelson, in the 80’s “JMG” began to focus on contemporary, folk, and outsider art.

In Miami the gallery earned a reputation for introducing many fine emerging artists and for hosting innovative openings and exhibitions. Among the artists supported by the gallery is the now acclaimed Miami outsider artist, Purvis Young, whom Joy assisted in placing in galleries and museums worldwide.

The unique and evolving collection of antiques, artifacts, and artists’ works represented by the Joy Moos Gallery, now based in the Los Angeles area, can be accessed online, or viewed in person – by appointment.

Inquiries are always welcome.

At Joy Moos Gallery, we strive to make the “art of acquiring art” a joyful and satisfying experience.
