NEW YORK, NY.- Joseph Gross Gallery
announces that the gallery is closing its Chelsea location, 548 W. 28th St, New York, with plans to relocate to San Francisco. Gross plans to continue participation at both international art fairs and pop-up exhibitions.
Joseph Gross Gallery has represented a stable of contemporary and emerging artists whose work exemplified the gallerys commitment to embracing pioneering concepts and diversity of practice. Joseph Gross states that while having the gallery space in Chelsea was a successful venture, I wish to focus my energies into spending time with my young family, particularly my newborn daughter at home in San Francisco.
Lynzy Blair, director, states Joseph Gross has been an important member of the New York art community for many years and a vital ally and contributing neighbor with his wonderful gallery. Due to the structure of our lease, Joseph was forced to make the decision immediately, leaving very little room for forewarning. As of January 8th, our location in New York City will be permanently closed. Though I will no longer be acting as director for the physical space, I will remain Joseph's East Coast representative, offering continued access to all JGG artists for our clients.
The gallery is the second New York space founded by Joseph Gross, a primary and secondary market dealer who also founded ArtNowSF in San Francisco in 2005 and ArtNowNY in Chelsea in 2012. Joseph Gross is known for curating exhibitions that challenge convention and bring the most cutting edge images and ideas by todays most exciting contemporary artists to the fore.
Joseph Gross has held numerous successful shows including work from Ron English, Alison Mosshart, Knowledge Bennett, Victor Solomon, Peter Gronquist, Lyle Owerko, an outstanding Wes Anderson themed show and many more.
The gallery will make every effort to keep the public posted in the coming days on should there be additional news to report.
