2016-2017 Exhibitions

What We Do:

The heart of Ceres is the exhibition season consisting of solo exhibitions and curated group shows. In addition to its function as a gallery and community network for women artists, Ceres presents a wide range of performances in such areas as music, poetry, and dance. Performance and gallery artists collaborate to curate programs for the season providing an important dialog between different disciplines within the New York community.

Lynne Mayocole and friend Irene Christensen have both had long-time obsessions with creating accordion drawings. Lynne has invited Irene to help her "paper the walls" with the results.

November 1 - 26, 2016

Pamela Shields
Project "S"

The artist invited friends to take anonymous "selfies" of their own vulvas, from which she created large charcoal drawings exploring this most private part of a woman's body.

Carol Goebel

Richly colored glazed surfaces of wood-fired clay sculptures thrust upward in the constant motion of growth and form.
