As of today, I am officially a member of the Ward-Nasse Gallery, which is a nonprofit, artist-run art gallery for “visual, spoken and performing artists” in Soho/NewYork City. Here is their website, opened to my page. I have long wanted to have a representation at a NYC gallery. Not a famous one, but a legitimate one, with a mailing list of 10,000 and thousands of visitors a year.
Here is one of my newest images, though it’s poor quality. It’s being rescanned right now and I’ll insert the new scan next week, after it’s returned and I work on it a bit.
Here is some background from Wikipedia:
The Ward-Nasse Gallery, founded by Harry Nasse, first opened as a commercial art gallery in Boston during the early sixties. When Harry Nasse moved to New York in 1970, he switched to artist-run cooperative status for the gallery. All modes of contemporary art are exhibited, from traditionally executed works to more experimental art forms. Artists from across the country share walls with artists from Europe, Asia and South America.
Because Ward-Nasse Art Gallery presents mostly group exhibitions, for the more than 40 years of operation the full list of artists who have exhibited is quite extensive, and numbers in the thousands. Some New York City artists who have started their careers or who continue to exhibit at Ward-Nasse are Laurie Anderson, performance artist; Jessica Diamond and Mark Dion, both represented by the American Fine Arts Co.; Paul Laffoley, represented by the Kent Gallery; Daniel Ouellette, represented by the Alexander Gallery; Harvey Quatman, represented by the McKee Gallery; Nicholas Arbatsky, exhibited at Artist’s Space and the John Baer Gallery; Amy Ernst, exhibited at the Anita Shapolsky Gallery; and John Miller, represented by metro Pictures ; John Marshall, Perry Hoberman, Harris Barron, Horst Liepolt, Amanda Fraser, Anthony Coffey, Olan Montgomery, Petr Šálek and many more.
Thanks again to Ward-Nasse. May it bring in sales!
Postscript: Ward-Nasse has just moved to New Jersey. Read about it here. Nothing else has changed, though, except the location.
