Inwood Art Works strives to showcase and celebrate the amazing local artistic talent by organizing curated contemporary exhibitions of established and emerging artists from the Inwood community. We hope to eventually establish a permanent gallery space as part of a cultural arts hub in Northern Manhattan.
Meanwhile we continue to find temporary exhibit space where we can, most recently a pop-up gallery on Broadway in which we hosted two major exhibitions presenting work from 59 visual artists including photographers, painters, and digital artists. There were more than 2500 visitors over the 34 days the unique gallery space was open during October and November 2017.
Focus on Photography celebrated the work of Inwood photographers including Robert and Robbie Bailey, Karin Dando-Haenisch, Bruce Katz, Stephen Mallon, Tom Okada, Luis Pons, Cristobal Vivar, and Bob Wagner.
Bridging the Invisible Divide was a local artist exhibition and fundraising auction for Inwood Art Works designed to bridge “The Broadway Divide” and present Northern Manhattan as a unified neighborhood. Over 50 current or former Inwood and Washington Heights visual artists were featured, including one talented nine year old!
During both exhibitions, Inwood Art Works organized dozens of live events in the pop-up gallery space, from visual artist panels and artist brunches to live music, improv, and film screenings, many of which were free to the community.
Artists with questions about submitting their work for consideration in our future events should contact us. And we’re also always eager to hear from local businesses or institutions that are able to host exhibitions of local artistic talent.
