About Our Gallery

“Art is to the community what the dream is to the individual.” Thomas Mann
Pearl River Mart has always drawn inspiration from its surroundings — the activism of Chinatown, the originality of SoHo, the unsurpassed energy of TriBeCa. Our gallery is a tribute to all those who, through their creativity, build bridges, understanding, and joy.
Our artists share our mission and vision. Whether New Yorkers by birth or choice, they come from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds, each with a unique perspective on identity, history, and culture.
They've taken us on their journeys as they've explored their identities. They’ve shown us how they maneuver through multiple worlds at once. They’ve focused their lenses on homes and the meaning of home. They’ve turned a gimlet eye to the future, and they’ve helped us remember and learn from the past.
