DESCRIPTION

VIRIDIAN ARTISTS PAST & PRESENT

October 21st - November 8thNovember 11th - November 29th, 2014

receptions: Thursdays Oct. 23rd  & Nov.13th  6-8PM

Chelsea: It is with pleasure and pride that Viridian Artists is featuring past and present Viridian Artists in two upcoming 45th Anniversary Exhibitions. These exhibitions will be occurring October 21st through November 8th and November 11th through November 29th, 2014. There will be receptions on Thursday Oct. 23 and Thursday Nov. 13, 6-8pm.

As one of the first artist-owned galleries in the New York City art world, Viridian began its existence in Soho when Soho was just beginning to be an art destination. In 1969, a group of Long Island artist formed a gallery just off West Broadway called Second Story Spring Street, the parent of Viridian Artists before SoHo was SoHo.

Viridian moved from there to becoming the only artist owned gallery on 57th St where it remained until 2001 in the NY Gallery Building. As the city was digging out from under the tragedy of 9/11, Viridian was moving to 530 W 25th in Chelsea where it remained until 2011, moving then to its current location at 548 West 28th Street.

Over the years some of the original artists have remained with the gallery while others have departed and then returned. With the gallery since its inception are Janet Bohman, Bernice Faegenburg, and Virginia Evans Smit. Barbara K Schwartz, Susan Sills, Oi Sawa, and Tazuko Fujii have been the gallery nearly as long. Other artists with the gallery since before 2000 include May DeViney, Renee Borkow and the Estate of Bruce Rosen.

The artists of Viridian draw from the complicated and often contradictory currents of modern life and contemporary culture to create their art. The gallery has always prized esthetic diversity and each Viridian Artist, past and present, has a particular approach to representation and a unique way of decoding reality.

As commercial galleries become artist-owned and cooperative galleries become more respected for their high quality art and the freedom they give their artists, Viridian has maintained that critical balance necessary to compete in today's diverse art community. Today, surviving the heyday of commercialism as art and art as real estate, Viridian continues.
