A sudden and significant increase in studio space in the mid-1980s meant that Azaceta was not only able to paint on a much larger scale than before, but also allowed him to explore the themes of his paintings and drawings in three dimensions.
Update Tuesday, June 30th:
As New York City begins to re-open, in accordance with the phase two guidelines, so will the gallery. In the interest of protecting the health of our visitors and staff, we will be requiring appointments and limiting the number of guests in the gallery at any time. Please check our home page for more information. While we look forward to welcoming you back, we understand that not everyone is ready or able to return. Through the rest of the summer we will continue to update this page with news and stories about our artists and our current and upcoming exhibitions.
In light of the evolving public health crisis surrounding the novel Coronavirus, we have made the decision to temporarily close the gallery to the public. We are continuing to monitor the situation and plan to resume normal operations once it is safe to do so. For now, the health of our staff, artists, visitors and colleagues remains the utmost concern; we will be working remotely and remain available via phone and email.
While we will miss the conversations we enjoy with all of our visitors, as we adjust to this current reality, please look to our website and social media feeds for more information. In the coming weeks we will be posting additional content, featuring not only our current exhibition of paintings and drawings by Luis Cruz Azaceta but works by all of the gallery's artists. This page will be a living archive of those posts, updated regularly. By scrolling down to the News & Press section of this page, those who are not on social media or missed the original can easily find them. We look forward to connecting with you all.
