The New York nonprofit Carter Burden Gallery is moving to a new home in Chelsea, at 548 West 28th Street, #534. Scheduled to open Apr. 11, the new location will show abstract paintings by New York’s Barbara Coleman for its first exhibition.
Founded in 2009 and formerly known as Gallery 307, Carter Burden Gallery dedicates itself to promoting older artists. “Exhibitions are curated based solely on quality and impact and represent older artists, many of whom were important participants in the Abstract Expressionist movement of the 1960s in New York City,” said the gallery’s curator, Marlena Vaccaro, in a press release.
Previously located on Seventh Avenue in the Flower District, the gallery is a program of the Carter Burden Center, a nonprofit agency that promotes the well-being of senior citizens. It was founded by New York businessman, socialite and politician Carter Burden (1941-1996) in 1971, during his tenure as a city councilman.
