Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2008, the Phoenix Gallery is one of the (if not the) longest-lived cooperative art galleries in New York City. Currently in its sixth home since its founding in 1958 at 40 3rd Avenue, the gallery has included numerous prestigious artists in its membership including Isser Aronovici (founder), John Fischer, Red Grooms, Elaine de Kooning, Lenore Jaffee, and Ted Jones.
The gallery's holiday benefit is December 1st from 6-8 P.M. Tickets are $25 per person (available at the door), and the evening will feature light refreshments as well as live music provided by Adam Michael Tilford. In addition, the current exhibition includes 12”x12” works of affordable original art priced at $200 each. All proceeds go to the continued operating costs and programming of the gallery (a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization).
The event will be a lovely chance to meet member artists, mingle with fellow art lovers, and support a unique cultural institution in New York City’s art scene. If the holiday event is not an option, the Holiday Benefit Exhibition runs through December 22nd.
