Photi Giovanis opened Callicoon Fine Arts in May of 2009 in the upstate New York town after which it is named as a seasonal, weekend gallery while also working full time at Metro Pictures in New York City. Previously Photi was employed by P.P.O.W Gallery. The gallery program in Callicoon combined artist's local to the area with artists from New York and elsewhere, including a group exhibition of over 20 German artists with André Butzer and Ulrich Wulff. Noted solo shows include those by Daniel Gordon, Carol Hepper, Ajay Kurian, Nicholas Buffon, Ben Berlow, Glen Fogel and two person shows by Francis Cape and Paul Kennedy, and Dave Miko with Nellie Bridge. Project room shows included installations by Trisha Baga, Margaret Lee, Mary Lucier and Ruby Sky Stiler.

In December of 2009, after being open for only a few months, the gallery participated in the NADA Art Fair, Miami, and was awarded the prize for best booth. This success prompted a move to the Lower East Side in September of 2011. The gallery's exhibitions and artist representations include Etel Adnan, Sadie Benning, Nicholas Buffon, A.K. Burns, Glen Fogel, James Hoff, Thomas Kovachevich, Benjamin Kress, Luther Price and Jason Simon. Upcoming exhibitions include Hervé Guibert and Ulrike Müller.

Gallery artist Etel Adnan participated in dOCUMENTA (13) and A.K. Burns and A. L. Steiner's film Community Action Center has been screened at MoMA, the Art Institute of Chicago, SFMoMA and the Warhol Museum as well as at local community centers across the US.
Callicoon Fine Arts artists are currently or will be exhibiting work at The Carnegie International, Kunstmuseum Basel, the New Museum, International Center for Photography, NY, Project Art Center, Dublin, Bard Center for Curatorial Studies, the Hammer Museum in LA, MASS MoCA and White Columns, NY.

ABOUT ARTVETTING.COM is introducing a new concept to the art world. An online forum where artists can access some of the critical market makers and taste makers who appreciate and understand the subtle workings that comprise the business of the art world. Each month we invite artists to register ($20 fee to cover costs) and upload five samples of their work plus a CV and 250 word artist statement. From these submissions we curate a group of ten artists who will be vetted by an art world professional.

• Round One was vetted by Hudson, owner of Feature Inc., on Manhattan's Lower East Side
• Round Two was vetted by Isaac Lyles from Derek Eller Gallery.
• Round Three had vetting from Brian Clamp, gallerist and owner of Clampart in New York City
• Round Four was vetted by Susan Inglett, gallerist, print publisher and art fair founder
• Round Five was vetted by Adrianne Rubenstein, gallery director at James Fuentes Gallery, NY, founded by Lis Ivers (formerly director at Marianne Boesky Gallery, Matthew Marks Gallery and others) and Dan Peyton, photographer and collector, aims to reach out to artists at all levels in order to provide information about how their work is seen by the decision makers who can guide and nurture artistic talent. A resource for artists, collectors and curators, will archive each group of work and over time create a critical mass of reviewed contemporary art.
