GALLERY MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION

Founded in 1974, PLEIADES is an artist run gallery maintained by its officers and members. The Officers: President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer & Assistant Treasurer are elected annually by the members. The gallery’s policy allows each member artist to assume an equal share of responsibilities in a collegial and professional environment.

Located in Chelsea, New York City, PLEIADES GALLERY is one of the oldest and most successful artist run galleries in Manhattan.

The mission of the Pleiades Gallery is to create, maintain and perpetuate a community of highly talented and committed artists, with a handsome, professional gallery for the exhibition of their works. It is the further mission of this artist-run community:

Foster a collegial atmosphere for art discussions, explorations and debates;

Widely publicize the Gallery’s events, news and accomplishments;

Stimulate and stir the sensibilities of the visiting public, art lovers, collectors and critics;

Encourage the sale of the exhibited art works.
