THE GALLERY, a new art / culinary project space in NYC, strives for togetherness and inclusivity. We would always like to embrace cultures from all around the world to inspire people. As we head into the new year, we’re delighted to present our new exhibition: EMBRACING 2022.

Featuring emerging female artists, their specialties include using threads to create conceptual artwork and multicolor painting on objects. Even in this day and age, there are so many issues that we have to deal with. From race to gender to politics to religion; we’re living in a society where it’s easier to close yourself off to people different from you. We cannot forget the importance of community and embracing beliefs and ideas from all walks of life. These artists embody that idea.
