First Street Gallery was founded in 1969 as a not-for-profit, and is a 501(c) 3 corporation. Located in the heart of Chelsea in New York City, it is one of the oldest artist-run galleries in New York. Its dual mission is to exhibit and promote the work of talented artists and to provide the public with an opportunity to see and learn about contemporary art in a highly accessible milieu, as in its partnership with Clearwater. The gallery’s professional artists are a stylistically diverse group who employ a variety of mediums and techniques: drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture and mixed media. Most commonly explored subject matter includes landscape, still life, and the figure, as well as mythic, personal, historical or political narratives.
