Bowery Gallery juried show on exhibit

The Bowery Gallery  is proud to present the 25th Annual Juried  Exhibition which runs Aug 2 – Aug 20.

We all are accustomed to competition in sports and politics,  ( Olympics !  Elections!!!) but in the art world,  competition  takes its own  unique form. The Bowery juried show had    386  applicants this year ;  39 pieces were chosen.

Many thanks to  Martica Sawin, our juror, who  admitted early on that she wished she could  include all the work submitted.  There were many, beautiful pieces –thank you Martica Sawin for taking this on and to all the artists who applied.

Congratulations to the artists in the exhibit. Here are some views of the gallery at  the opening reception and artists with their paintings .

The Bowery Gallery is a co-operative gallery, wholly run by its artist members. Our mission is to exhibit work of the highest quality from independent artists.  Just a little of our history: on October 31, 1969, a group of artists joined to form the Bowery Gallery. The gallery has been in continuous operation ever since, and is one of the oldest in NYC.
