Crossing Art was established by Catherine Lee, a New York/Shanghai based art patron and collector with the opening of the original gallery in Queens, New York . It was founded with the belief that Contemporary art can broaden dialogues among cultures and discourses and should be shared with communities and not limit to certain locale and audiences.   

Since its founding in 2008 to 2014, Crossing Art has exhibited more than sixty exhibitions and public art projects in New York City.  It has worked cooperatively with organizations and artists worldwide to broaden artistic discourse, deepen appreciation, and connect audiences and communities. Drawing on its unique position bridging North America and Asia, it serves both artists and clientele through public art installations, exhibition programming, artist representation and various curatorial projects.

During the period that the gallery was in Queens, Catherine lee has contributed to many projects promoting emerging artists and projects. She has served as a trustee of Queens Council of Arts and Queens Library Foundation and awarded by New York Mayor Bloomberg the Rising Star Award. .

From 2014 to 2016, the gallery more focused on to curating public art projects in New York and in China. Then the gallery moved to Chelsea, New York and shares a gallery space with its subsidiary company Crossing Collective. It also has representative offices in Shanghai.  The gallery ethos is to promote great and innovative artists and to nurture the best talent from the a select group of contemporary artists whose work  and whose roots or work lies in the tradition and heritage from Asia and other cultures. It offers a unique perspective on the contemporary art world, with its mission to forge closer ties between the East and West, and to inspire the appreciation and understanding of art and design and its role in society.
