Where to start. 45 years in business is an accomplishment! Every year we reach new heights, and every day I learn something new.

I have so many people to thank. All our staff and interns, past and present, hundreds of artists who take creativity to a new level with each new work of art. To our clients, visitors and followers, we would not be here if it were not for you.  And we thank the media, who graciously covers our exhibitions throughout the decades.

Art is forever. Artists tell the emotional history of the times they lived. Artists know how to make much out of little, and the art lasts for centuries, if not millenniums. It continues to be a privilege to share this enormous center of creativity with all of you.

Through the length of this show we will be having meet and greets with several artists and zoom chats with the artists. We will also arrange a series of studio visits to our artists that live in the area. We would like to hear from you about what you would like so email us at art@zenithgallery.com

45 years in business is an amazing accomplishment, every year we reach new heights, and every day I learn something new. There are so many people to thank – all our employees past and present, hundreds of artists who take creatively to a new level with each new work of art, our clients and people who come to our gallery or buy online. We feel blessed to be in our 2nd generation of clients and artists. We also thank the media who has graciously covered us throughout the decades.

Art is forever, and artists tell the emotional history of the times they lived. Artists know how to make much out of little, and the art lasts for centuries if not millenniums. It continues to be a privilege to share this enormously deep well of creativity with all of you.

This commitment to celebrating the creative spirit of our artists is the core value at the heart of Zenith Gallery. As Zenith Gallery Owner, and celebrated artist in her own right, Margery Goldberg is fond of saying, “With billions of people on the planet, for someone to come up with an original idea and execute it in an original way is what has kept me in business all these years.”

Zenith Gallery offers much more than merely a white walled art gallery with a few dozen works of art. Instead, you step into a world that is a veritable kaleidoscope of art mediums and genres, with works ranging from abstract expressionistic to natural realism… with pieces that range in size from monumental sculpture to intricately wrought, one-of-a-kind jewelry. Our artists work in an array of materials, including: wood, clay, pieced metal, found objects and lighting elements, mixed media and mesh, cast glass, acrylic on panel, and more! These are seasoned professionals and shining stars just appearing on the horizon, all who offer creative takes on subject such as classisism; humor; romance; environmental awarness; social unrest; love and gratitude. Whose works are thought-provoking; meditative; quirky; bold, and tempestuous. It’s all here to be seen and experienced in this momentous exhibition.

The scope of this ever-evolving collection, with its intriguing juxtaposition of materials and themes is hallmark of our gallery, and has also helped cement our reputation. Whether you are new to collecting art or a long-time buyer, we are sure to inspire the collector in you. In short, we can confidently say that our collection is unlike anything you have ever seen before!

Many of our artists we have shown since we opened 45 years ago at our first location called Zenith Square, many of our collectors will remember those wonderful days of our art center with 50 artists studios and the gallery. As we find new incredibly talented artists we continue to add to our collection of unique and talented artists. Throughout our history, we’ve pushed boundaries and broken ground with an ever-changing selection of artworks.  Zenith Gallery is proud to represent nearly 100 artists with mastery in painting, sculpture, photography, mixed media, neon, jewelry, and tapestry. We regularly host exhibitions in our two locations, featuring art for sale by many of the area’s most sought-after artists in the genres of contemporary art, abstract art, and African American art.

Please join them for a wonderful celebration of these phenominal artists.
