The Chelsea art district in New York is, without a doubt, a must-visit destination for everyone looking for high-end modern and contemporary art. It features hundreds of fine art galleries offering works by world-known and emerging artists alike. In this blog post, we want to draw your attention to one of them – the amazing Burning in Water Gallery that stands out from many others due to its innovative curatorial program focused on the work of living artists.
Burning in Water
Burning in Water is a relatively young contemporary art gallery that was founded by Dr. Barry Thomas Malin in New York in 2015. The first gallery space was opened in West Chelsea at 317 10th Avenue, but last year, Burning in Water expanded its operation by opening two more spaces in the famous Chelsea art district, both at 507 West 27th Street in the High Line Nine building that represents a somewhat hybrid between a gallery, museum, showroom, and art fair. Burning in Water also has an exhibition space in San Francisco that is part of the Minnesota Street Project located in the historic Dogpatch district of the city.
As it has already been said, Burning in Water is focused on the work of living artists, representing such talents as Valerie Hegarty, Eric LoPresti, Borinquen Gallo, Jesse Krimes, and Oliver Lee Jackson. This Chelsea-based gallery is indeed a great place to enjoy and acquire high-quality contemporary art in New York. Very recommended by Fine Art Shippers!
