Galerie Protégé is pleased to present NSFW, an exhibition of works by the staff and family of Chelsea Frames and Galerie Protégé. This is the fourth annual exhibition hosted by the gallery. Curated by Jaclyn Acker, President of Chelsea frames and Founder/President of Galerie Protégé, this multi-disciplinary show features works by Danielle Bullard, Rachel Covert, Lauren Gould, Allison Henri, Rachel Lenihan, Alcides Rivas, Christian Rogers, Victor Terrero, and Kara Verkennis with special guests Sam Fuentes, Don Miller, Ethan Millspaugh, and Robert Nugent.

 

Since 1983, Chelsea Frames has built its reputation as a premier New York custom framing studio specializing in framing for many galleries, movie production companies, architects and top interior designers. Having distinguished itself with its unique approach to custom framing, Chelsea Frames was hailed by Art Business News as being "a leading force in encouraging and supporting the art movement to Chelsea."  In 2011, the studio expanded to include Galerie Protégé, born from a desire to create a sacred place where emerging artists could exhibit their work in the heart of the prestigious Chelsea gallery district.

 

NSFW highlights the ethos of these two leading entities under the reigns of Acker.  Her curatorial efforts begin in the hiring process, making sure that her team understands the creative process at its pinnacle. The workforce behind 197 Ninth Avenue represents the highest level of professionalism in their work and in the art that they create. As a member of these institutions, the staff works behind the scenes to nurture the artistic ventures of others, meanwhile fulfilling artistic pursuits of their own in their lives outside of the studio. The result is a significant respect for they work that they encounter, and an ongoing development of their practice as a framer and an artist.

 

Please join us for the opening reception on July 16th between 6 and 8pm.
