For the last 30 years, Blue Mountain Gallery has provided artists a gathering place of ideas where painters can communicate visually and verbally and find the support and inspiration of their peers. The gallery’s longevity in the everchanging and chaotic world of New York galleries is witness to its value and to the loyal dedication of its members. On occasion artists like to surprise the viewers of their work  and Blue Mountain’s members hope that Off-Balance will provide some food for thought.

The Blue Mountain Gallery is a non-profit cooperative artists’ gallery that was founded more than 30 years ago. The original mission of the gallery was to show the work of strong representational painters and to stimulate the representational tradition of painting, which was almost totally absent from New York’s commercial galleries in 1980. Over the years the mission has grown to include both representational and abstract painters. To accomplish this, the members regularly view the slides of artists for inclusion in the gallery, exhibit their work and invite the public to openings of the shows and educational talks. The gallery has held public poetry readings by such notable poets as the late Kenneth Koch, collaborations between poets and painters with the poets reading their work, and occasional dance recitals. It has held small works invitationals and juried shows to encourage larger community involvement for new and emerging artists as well as showing artists from Japan, Finland and Germany, and participating in an exchange show with the Galerie Mani in Berlin.
