Ceres, founded in 1984, is a non-profit alternative center dedicated to the promotion of contemporary artists. Located in Chelsea, the gallery has 2000+ square feet of gallery space at a premier  location in a destination building.

Ceres serves as a supportive base for a diversity of artistic and political views. The heart of our work is the exhibition season consisting of solo exhibitions and curated group shows.

We believe the arts provide an important social service and that there is an inherent power in art to enrich the quality and depth of people’s lives.
