SMARTS Gallery is dedicated to showing the
work of international artists and designers who reside in
New York. We are part of NY SMARTS, which
serves the broader aim of providing international artists
and designers resources through which they can most fully
engage in the New York arts and design scene. These resources
- Language training by tutors who have a solid background
in art and design.
- Lectures and events to help non-native artists gain exposure
to important and relevant knowledge.
- Career development services to help international artists
effectively present their work to prospective galleries,
museums and grants.
- The SMARTS Gallery which offers our
international and American community of artists a venue
to display and promote their work.
- An on-line forum where international artists can share
information on events and issues of concern to them.
NY SMARTS is as much about its community
as its services. Our tutors, lecturers and consultants have
solid credentials in art and design, and many are drawn from
New York’s top art museums, art magazines and art schools.
Interaction between our students and staff fosters a two-way
exchange of artistic vision that transcends the limitations
of any particular language or culture. In this way, it is
our hope that NY SMARTS will inspire its
community, leading students and tutors alike to develop strong
new expressions in art and design.
Artists and designers come to New York to share a dream:
to learn English, to develop their art, and to be part of
the world-famous New York art scene. NY SMARTS
brings all this together — what better way is there
to fulfill this dream than talking about art with artists,
learning English by working with them, and making connections
within the New York artist community?
