On May 7, 2011, the gallery participated in the 4th Annual Madison Avenue Gallery Walk. With the sun shining and more than 30 prestigious art and antique galleries on Madison Avenue between 57th and 86th Streets coming together to host a day-long series of Art Talks, it was the perfect day to be out visiting galleries. For the event, our Gallery Director Chris Santa Maria hosted two talks, during which he discussed the history of the Gemini G.E.L. workshop as well as an overview of our gallery’s “New and Recent Publications” exhibition.
The Gallery Walk benefits arts education in New York City’s public schools through The Fund for Public Schools, a nonprofit organization Chaired by NYC Schools Chancellor Joel Klein and Vice Chaired by Caroline Kennedy and Mortimer Zuckerman. One notable attendee was Brian Leong, an 11-year old student and budding artist from Brooklyn, whose self-portrait collage was selected to be viewed at the gallery.
