The number of guests allowed inside the gallery at one time will be limited to 10 and each guest’s time will be limited depending on attendance demand.

Artists are entirely responsible for delivering, installing and de-installing their own work. Work can be either for sale or not for sale.

Ceres provides a general postcard for Exposure and sends out an e-card for each week of the exhibitions.

Ceres does not take commission on sale of work.

Ceres Gallery is a feminist, not-for-profit, alternative gallery in New York City, dedicated to the promotion of contemporary women in the arts. Ceres provides an exhibition space that enhances public awareness and helps remediate women’s limited access to commercial galleries. It also serves as a supportive base for a diversity of artistic and political views. Over the years Ceres has encouraged not only artists but writers, musicians, dancers, poets and storytellers to perform in the gallery and take risks with their work that might not be possible in a commercial setting. The members of Ceres Gallery believe the arts provide an important social service – that art has the power to educate, enhance and enrich the quality and depth of people’s lives.
