Trygve Lie Gallery was established to contribute to the promotion of Norwegian, Norwegian-American and Scandinavian art to a broad audience in the city of New York.

On September 19th 2003, the Norwegian Ambassador to the US, Knut Vollebæk, officially opened the new Gallery at a private reception.

The Inaugural Exhibition - Norwegian Artists in New York - took place February 2004 with H. E. Kofi Annan, Secretary-General of the United Nations and Mrs. Annan as guests of honor.
