DESCRIPTION


RARE, founded in 1998 in New York City's meatpacking district, is dedicated to exhibiting emerging artists and to helping those artists build their careers so that they move from the emerging into the established category. While our commitment to our artists is long-term, our scheduling allows us to introduce new artists each year. RARE has moved to a different location in Chelsea on W 27 St. in between 10th and 11th Ave.


We work with artists who emphasize process and technique, not as an end in itself, but as a way of drawing out and amplifying the content of their work. The content itself focuses on highly specific and personal issues that tie into "the big issues" in the world at large, and yet are leavened with a dose of humor.

Needless to say, the presence of the artist's hand is a signature feature of the work we exhibit. One can readily observe the hand-made qualities, the great attention to craft and detail, the lack of slickness. This fact points up the most important quality of our artists and their work – sincerity in the approach to materials and processes as a means of expressing sincerely held beliefs and feelings.

While placing work in important collections is crucial to artists' career growth, we also believe in nurturing appropriate relationships with the media, museums, and consultants to provide our artists with other venues for exposure. In this way, we have been able to help many of them establish careers that are national and international in scope.

Our vision encompasses work primarily in the areas of painting, drawing, object-making, and installation. While we are most attracted to art with an edge, we must feel that it will have lasting importance. Such art is rare today, but we are grateful when we find it, and we always will continue to search for it.
