In 1969, a group of eighteen adventurous young New York artists, looking around the contemporary art world and thinking back to the 10th Street days of the 1950s, founded a new cooperative gallery on the Bowery, and named it Bowery Gallery after its location. In 1972 the gallery moved to Greene Street, in 1980 to Wooster Street, in 2000 to W. 25th St. in Chelsea, and in 2021 to its present location on W. 27th St. in Chelsea. From its beginnings, the gallery has been a force for the expansion of art’s traditions in a venue unconstrained by commercial pressures. Exhibitions at Bowery Gallery have received notice in The New York Times, Arts, Art in America, Modern Painters, ARTnews, artcritical.com, Vogue, The New Criterion, The New York Sun, The Observer, and The New Republic.
An annual international competition and juried show, sponsored by Bowery Gallery in August, has been juried by such notable artists as William Bailey, Rosemary Beck, Nell Blaine, Natalie Charkow, Lois Dodd, Rackstraw Downes, Louis Finkelstein, Janet Fish, Jane Freilicher, Bill Jensen, Gabriel Laderman, Wilbur Niewald, Paul Resika, Joan Snyder, Kyle Staver, John Walker, and Ro Lohin; and art critics Lance Esplund, Jed Perl, Martica Sawin, Karen Wilkin, and Janice Nowinski.
