DESCRIPTION

It's always amazing how quickly time flies, but then we all feel that- young & old- in this age of quick upgrades and electronic gadgets that are out of date before they wear out. Viridian Artists,INC's 10 years lease following our move from 57th st to Chelsea has just ended and I remember our beginning here too well, for it was Sept 2001. Because my studio is on Canal Street, I was under the path of the planes that morning. The gallery had just moved to Chelsea and I was without phone & radio. I walked to Chelsea to call my family and set up the gallery's computer so that I could tell everyone I was ok. The planes flew over my studio, the falling bodies were visible, the grey ash flying everywhere.

This September, many galleries are having shows to do with the 10th anniversary of this immense tragedy but we did our "Elegy" show to 9/11, thanks to the encouragement of our President Emeritus, Barbara K Schwartz, the year after it happened, incorporating an immense project of artists' proposals commemorating that tragedy, curated by the sculptor Mary Miss.

So let others commemorate that moment now and let us celebrate our move and next 10 years at our new location, 548 W28th St. Now the Highline has an entrance on our block and Viridian Artists,INC continues to move forward, as do the artists of today, responding to their realities and the realities of the world, whatever they might be.

And so our show to open this 2011-12 season is called "Moved". We have asked our gallery artists to select works that address the concept of "moved" in all its various ramifications, whether they be emotional, physical or other.

Looking forward to seeing you soon,

Gallery Director, Viridian Artists
