The Painting Center is pleased to announce a benefit exhibition and party to celebrate a significant milestone—its 21st anniversary. For 21 years The Painting Center has been dedicated to deepening the conversation about painting by providing exhibition opportunities for emerging, mid-career, and under-recognized artists as well as through public lectures, an online artist registry, and internship opportunities. By mounting consistently high quality, rigorous, and thoughtful exhibitions, The Painting Center has gained a reputation as a serious and relevant venue for contemporary painting. 21 & Counting brings together works of 300 artists from the New York area and as far afield as Texas, California, and Canada. These artists are participating in this event as a show of support for the important work The Painting Center does, and to help ensure its continued viability. A preview of works in the exhibition will be accessible online through The Painting Center website. 50% of all sales will go to support The Painting Center’s programs. Please come and view what is sure to be a dynamite exhibition and celebrate with us on December 12th!
