The closures and social distancing brought on by the coronavirus pandemic resulted in Ceres Gallery being closed from March 16, 2020 to September 8, 2020, a period of almost six months. Ceres has never before been closed for more than two or three weeks in its more than thirty-five year history. The quarantine separated our artists from each other and, in many cases, from their studios, for a previously unimaginable period of time.
But the artists of Ceres are indefatigable and so they enthusiastically planned a grand group exhibition for the reopening. We now bring you that exhibition, titled Life As It Is Now, expressing for each of the participating artists, how these difficult circumstances have affected their work and their lives. Through the mediums of painting, drawing, printing, photography and sculpture, communicating their point of view employing abstraction, representation or figuration, Ceres artists bring you their interpretation of the present moment in time, a moment certainly unparalleled in our lifetimes.
The pandemic, the election, the environmental, social and political upheavals and how artists see our world will be on view for three weeks. There will be no opening reception but the exhibition is open to the public. It would be best, however, if you called the gallery in advance of your visit, 212.947.6100. We are equipped with everything to make your visit safe and edifying.
Ceres Gallery is following all COVID19 requirements.
Masks are required at all times.
We suggest you call before visiting.
