As owner and curator of Gallery Art, a full service fine art gallery located in Aventura, Ken Hendel has been assisting art lovers with their fine art needs for over 20 years. Mr. Hendel has always been passionate about buying and selling art. At first glance, Gallery Art, tucked in the corner of the Promenade Shops next to Nordstrom Rack, may appear to be a small gallery. However, upon walking through the front doors, guests are greeted with an 8,000 square-foot showroom of beautiful art and great deals. At every turn, Gallery Art customers are treated to exciting and diverse displays of original oils, mixed medias, limited edition graphics, bronzes, and glass sculptures by celebrated artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Tom Wesselmann, Robert Indiana, Peter Max, Salvador Dali and Leroy Neiman.

Mr. Hendel was born and raised in New London, Connecticut. He attended Bryant University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Management. After graduation, he became a Commodity Broker before turning his business acumen into establishing Gallery Art. Although Mr. Hendel is a licensed auctioneer and appraiser, his favorite part of the business is buying art, which is evident by his massive inventory.

He is an active, supporting member of the community and is always willing to extend his heart and his hand to those in need. He is an annual donor and supporter of the Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the Diabetes Research Institute, the Kids vs. Cancer Organization and the Humane Society of Greater Miami. Mr. Hendel has been a Founders Board Member of Mount Sinai and currently serves as a member of the executive board of the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce.
