As a result of the shuttered doors of our galleries, Hunter East Harlem Gallery is bolstering digital outreach and remote networking during the quarantine period of the Coronavirus pandemic. Due to an influx of requests from our network: we have decided to focus on our specific arts community: Uptown artists (Upper Manhattan and the Bronx), Socially Engaged artists and Hunter College MFAs.
From April 20th onwards, HEHG will be conducting digital studio visits with artists in our community as a gesture of service and as a networking tool during this isolating time. We have invited very special guest curators to join us during these meetings.
We are viewing these visits as mutual networking opportunities — where we can introduce the talented artists of our community to amazing curators, and to the initiatives of HEHG.
If you are an Uptown artist (living or working in Upper Manhattan and/or the Bronx), a Socially Engaged artist, or a current Hunter College MFA student and you are interested in participating in a virtual studio visit, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to your website and tell us (in less than 250 words) why this program appeals to you (capacity is limited).
