Greene Contemporary News

02.26.2013 - R. Justin Stewart will be exhibiting at THE (UN)FAIR during Armory Arts Week, March 5-10. THE (UN)FAIR takes over an entire floor of 500 West 52nd Street, two blocks from the site of the 100th Anniversary edition of the Armory Show, Pier 92.

02.13.2013 - Greene Contemporary is making a comeback in a new and unique form. The new Greene Contemporary features a carefully curated selection of artists, exhibitions and projects developed to showcase un(der)represented artists. We are giving un(der)represented artists an online platform to showcase their work in an aesthetically pleasing way while also seeking out distinctive exhibition opportunities for them.

Greene Contemporary will produce monthly exhibitions beginning in March 2013. Greene Contemporary will also represent a vetted group of un(der)represented artists with a major goal of enhancing exposure and advancing careers. Greene Contemporary is seeking to break the traditional mold of a gallery by providing a dynamic e-venue for collectors, art lovers and exhibition seekers to engage with.

Greene Contemporary opened in March 2006 in Sarasota, Florida. Greene Contemporary moved to 9 Clinton St. on the Lower East Side of New York City in September 2008,. In August 2009, Greene Contemporary closed its physical space. Since 2009, owner/director Jonathan Greene has worked as Director of Business Development at Collectrium and most recently held the post of Director of Exhibitions at the Hunterdon Art Museum in Clinton, NJ.

Understanding that the landscape of the art world has changed dramatically over the past 5 years, Greene Contemporary seeks to uncover a new gallery model with a specialized focus on un(der)represented artists that exists virtually, at least for the time being. Please visit the website for information on upcoming exhibitions and our artists.

Greene Contemporary would like to extend its deepest appreciation to all of the wonderful people who have supported us since we first opened in Florida in 2005. As of August 2009, Greene Contemporary is closed. The past year at the new space at 9 Clinton Street on the Lower East Side was a great one, but one which was commensurate with the rest of the art world. The gallery has always been a labor of love, but in the end, the financial implications of trying to stay open were not worth the further risk in this market.

Although the physical space is closed, Greene Contemporary is in the process of adjusting the framework of the gallery to continue the entity in a different form. With an eye towards artist management, art advising, curation and consulting, Greene Contemporary will release a new business model soon. The website will remain the same and will continue to follow the artists we have represented as they move into new endeavors with Greene Contemporary, as well as with other galleries.

Our first collaboration is already in place as Greene Contemporary artists, Nathan Skiles and Heather Sherman, will have simultaneous solo ehxibitions at Sloan Fine Art, opening Wednesday, January 27 and continuing through February 20, 2010.

Greene Contemporary can not adequately express what the relationships we have built have meant to the gallery over the years. Through four years, nine art fairs and countless collective efforts for the arts, we have always remained humble and appreciative of where we were at. We hope to take all the friendships we have made with artists, collectors, galleries, curators and art fairs into the next phase with us.

During this transitional time, we ask that all inquiries and contacts be made via email.
