A.I.R.Gallery Celebrates 40th Anniversary

The year 2012 is especially auspicious for A.I.R. Gallery as we celebrate 40 years as a feminist organization and exhibition space. Founded in 1972, as the first artist collaborative gallery for women in the United States, A.I.R.’s goal is to provide a professional and permanent exhibition space for women artists to present work of quality and diversity.

As we celebrate four decades of promoting women artists, A.I.R. Gallery proudly recognizes those who over the past forty years have contributed so much to the richness and diversity of the New York art world, and honors current members who continue the mission of A.I.R. by providing under-represented women artists with exhibition and curatorial opportunities.

A.I.R. Gallery celebrated in Spring 2013 with our 40th Birthday Party Event on Tuesday, March 19th from 7 - 9:30pm at A.I.R. Gallery. Thank you to everyone who made the evening a success! Pictures coming soon.

During our 40th season, A.I.R. Gallery has planned three major group exhibitions:

  • " 40/40," A.I.R. 40th Anniversary Exhibition curated by Lilly Wei,
    March 7 - 30, 2013
  • 10th A.I.R. Biennial Exhibition curated by Ingrid Schaffner, ICA, Philadelphia,
    December 6, 2012 - January 5, 2013
  • National / International Gallery Artists Exhibition curated by Catherine Morris,
    March 28 - April 21, 2012

The strong feminist spirit that thrives at A.I.R. Gallery has attracted artists, curators, collectors, and supporters since the gallery’s founding. Watch for further details of our up-coming anniversary celebrations and join us in honoring our history and envisioning our future.

We invite you to support A.I.R. Gallery’s programs and exhibitions by making a tax-deductible donation to our 40th Anniversary Fund. Our goal is to raise $40,000 to celebrate our first 40 years!

As we look to the future, think of what your support could do for women artists in our next 40 years!

“The women who have contributed to A.I.R. Gallery for forty years do not constitute a particular movement or school. Instead, the women are a cohesive, vitally important social force with a commitment to A.I.R. Gallery, and, by extension, a dedication to the social, cultural and political priorities that A.I.R. Gallery represents.”

–Catherine J. Morris, Curator, Sackler Center for Feminist Art, Brooklyn Museum
