GALLERY HOUSE IS PROUD TO PRESENT:  Between Senses

(An Art and Design Exhibition - Brooklyn, New York)

According to World Health Organization, unintentional poisonings and toxins kill an estimated 355,000 people globally each year. People inevitably absorb dangerous toxins. Toxic substances one can hardly see, smell, hear, touch or taste have subtly merged into our daily necessities: food, water, clothes and beauty products. Those affected may not understand how our senses can be influenced by such exposure both physically and emotionally.

Gallery House Fellows of Fall 2016 are curating an exhibition Between Senses, which includes works that give tangible forms of the idea of senses by taking a visitor on a toxic free sensory journey through carefully selected and curated works of art and designs. Original works will be raffled off and auctioned to benefit the Brooklyn Fashion and Design Accelerator (visit http://bkaccelerator.com/ ) and MiA Collective Art (visit http://www.miacollectiveart.com/), both New York-based organizations that support designers, artists, and entrepreneurs to inspire positive impact in the world.

Gallery House is a unique, private gallery located in an historical Brownstone dating back to 1877, and is used to host fundraising and fine art exhibitions at absolutely no cost. The only parties that financially benefit from our exhibitions are the artists and charitable organizations involved. Visit www.galleryhouse.org

When: Thursday December 1 - 15, 2016, from 7pm -11pm

Location: Gallery House, 272 Clinton Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11205

Receptions: Thurs., December 1st, Thurs., December 15th, 2016 or by appointment anytime.

GALLERY HOUSE IS PROUD TO PRESENT: "Masks of Courage: Defying True Identity"

(Fine Art Group Exhibition - Brooklyn, New York)


Original works will be raffled off and auctioned to benefit the Natalia Ponce de León Foundation, a Colombian organization that supports acid attack survivors and works towards the end of acid violence. 

 

Opening Receptions: Thursday April 28th & May 5th, 2016 and by appointment.


“Masks of Courage: Defying True Identity” will take the viewers through a journey that separates the sense of self worth from external attributes of identity, to ultimately confront them to the reality acid attack victims experience.

 

The show challenges the collection of attributes that defines how we see ourselves, and how others perceive us. Our face, body, language, relationships, what we wear, like and own, paints an image of who we are. But what happens when we take those things away? Who are we then? In that spirit, we are delighted to work with artists who inquire and/or answer the question: “Who am I?". Selected art works will be donated and all profits will go to the non-profit Natalia Ponce de León Foundation.

 

When: Thursday April 28th and May 5th, 2016 from 7pm – 11pm


Where: Gallery House, 272 Clinton Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11205

About the foundation (Natalia Ponce de León Foundation)

Natalia Ponce de León Foundation defends, promotes and protects the human rights of victims of chemical attacks. Natalia Ponce, a 35 year old Colombian, had a liter of sulfuric acid thrown over her face and body, March 27, 2014. She suffered 3rd degrees burns on a quarter of her body. Less than two years later, she has founded this organization and successfully campaigned for the amendment of a law that prosecutes the attackers, protects the victims and regulates acid sale.

We are committed to assisting folks in building lives outside of detention, to breaking down the barriers that prevent folks from building fulfilling and strong lives, and to keeping queer families together by demanding an end to deportations/ detention/ policing. We believe in creating a narrative of thriving, not just surviving.

GALLERY HOUSE IS PROUD TO PRESENT “EARTH” (Fine Art Group Exhibition)
Opening Receptions:  February 25 & March 6, 2010 and by appointment
 
Two original paintings will be raffled off with the proceeds donated to MillionTreesNYC

Brooklyn, NY: Gallery House is proud to present “EARTH,” an environmentally themed group exhibition. This exhibition in both form and function is meant to celebrate and highlight the challenges our planet is currently facing. It is critical for our own survival that we learn to put a priority on the environment’s needs. Many of us have become so immersed with day-to-day responsibilities and possessions that we have begun to neglect the stage that our lives play out on. “EARTH” refocuses the viewer’s attention to nature through the medium of art.
Two receptions will be held during which one original painting will be raffled off with the proceeds donated to MillionTreesNYC, a public-private initiative between the City of New York and New York Restoration Project to plant and care for one million trees across New York City by 2017. The gallery will be open by appointment from February 5th through March 12th.

About MillionTreesNYC
MillionTreesNYC is a citywide, public-private initiative with an ambitious goal: to plant and care for one million new trees across the City's five boroughs by 2017. By planting one million trees, New York City can increase its urban forest - our most valuable environmental asset made up of street trees, park trees, and trees on public, private and commercial land - by an astounding 20%, while achieving the many quality-of-life benefits that come with planting trees.

The New York City Department of Parks & Recreation (Parks) will plant 60% of the trees in parks, on streets, and in other public spaces. The other 40% - coordinated through New York Restoration Project (NYRP) – will be planted by private organizations, homeowners and community organizations. Parks and NYRP are working with community partners to assess tree planting opportunities on schoolyards, public housing campuses, health care facilities, business districts, commercial and residential developments, front yards and other private lands.  For more information about MillionTreesNYC, visit www.milliontreesnyc.org or call 311.

GALLERY HOUSE IS PROUD TO PRESENT STYLE OF NATURE
BY JONATHAN LEVY

50% of all proceeds go to Council on the Environment of New York City (CENYC)
Brooklyn, NY: Gallery House presents STYLE OF NATURE by Jonathan Levy

Gallery House will open its doors to the public with a solo exhibit Style of Nature by Jonathan Levy.  After July 24, the gallery will be open by appointment. Through Jonathan Levy’s work (www.styleofnature.com), he attempts to glorify Mother Nature and her creations. His paintings reflect imagery found in nature, representing mankind’s collective beginnings marked by the patterns and movements that exist around us. Ranging from the repetitive design of a flower, to the rhythm and flow of the ocean, Levy’s work, through subject matter and process, reflects the unpredictable temperament of nature. In the spirit of “green,” Gallery House is marking its Grand Opening by donating 50% of the proceeds to CENYC. “Our partnership with Jonathan Levy and Gallery House for Style Of Nature reflects a shared vision of preserving the natural beauty of New York City,” said CENYC Executive Director Marcel Van Ooyen “Like Jonathan’s philosophy, everyday CENYC staff, volunteers, and the youth we serve roll up their sleeves to create and preserve green spaces, plant trees, and restore habitats and shorelines in hopes of contributing to a healthy environment.”
