The Tobey C. Moss Gallery opened in 1978 with a modest showing of prints by John Sloan and Armin Hansen - from one coast of the United States to the other. As a member of the IFPDA/International Fine Print Dealers Association, our print inventory is extensive but we also offer drawings, watercolors, collages, paintings and sculptures. We favor American artists, particularly those active in California since the 1930s....through today. Abstraction is a special direction in the Gallery, in parallel with social criticism, kineticism, works by women artists and works by Mexican/Latin and African American artists. In addition, we offer occasional fine works by European, Asian and Early Master artists.

In 1999 Robert took over the Washington International Print Fair which had been running continuously for 29 years. The fair is still held in Arlington, VA but Robert renamed it to the Capital Art Fair and in 2015 the fair will be 35 years in operation. In 2007 the Shop purchased The Old Print Gallery in Washington, DC. The gallery is located in historic Georgetown just off M Street. In the Washington gallery there is a fine selection of American art between 1750 and 1950, contemporary printmakers, as well as a selection of antique maps.

Certainly this family has long been a major influence in acquiring and selling fine prints and works on paper. Works of art enrich our lives and the Newmans have certainly done that.
