The  39th Street Gallery announces Trade.  An art exhibition based on exchange portfolios.

Featuring the work of:

Curated by Phil Davis

“Trade” is exchange; it means “commerce” and “profession.”  The exhibition Trade at the 39th Street Gallery intends to be all of those things.  It’s about working in the arts, meant to be transparent about placing the gallery and the Gateway CDC are at the center of all the things galleries do:  supporting artists, building relationships, creating discourse, and yes, funding the continuation of those efforts.  Based on the concept of an exchange portfolio and curated by Phil Davis, Trade brings together eight artists to each create a new edition of 12 artworks.  Every artist will receive one work by each other artist, becoming one another’s collectors and inevitably also one another’s promoters.  The remaining four works in each edition are available for sale – all at the same price of $250.  It’s a rare opportunity to collect work by established artists at such an affordable level.  Proceeds go directly to the artists and also benefit the Gateway CDC, which in turn supports arts programming in the 39th Street Gallery as well as work to continue developing the Gateway Arts District.
