What We Do:

The heart of Ceres is the exhibition season consisting of solo exhibitions and curated group shows. In addition to its function as a gallery and community network for women artists, Ceres presents a wide range of performances in such areas as music, poetry, and dance. Performance and gallery artists collaborate to curate programs for the season providing an important dialog between different disciplines within the New York community.
