Founded over thirty years ago, Blue Mountain Gallery is a non-profit cooperative and exhibition space, located in the heart of New York’s Chelsea gallery district. Administered entirely by its artist members, the mission of the gallery has evolved from an advocacy of the figurative tradition to a broader and more eclectic interpretation of contemporary painting, printmaking and sculpture. An ongoing schedule of one-person exhibitions by individual members is augmented each year with poetry readings, lectures, panels, invitational exhibitions and juried shows. The exhibitions and programs are designed to provide the greater artist community with a gathering place for ideas, inspiration and support for our peers.
