On Clementine Gallery's closing


Neil Farber, Untitled, 2004
22.5 × 30 inches

Leave it to Chelsea Now to write the best article I've read on the closing of the beloved Clementine Gallery. Maybe the art press is too afraid to dwell on such stories. My favorite statistic in the article: the gallery needed to sell $80,000 worth of work each month to break even.

I chose the image above, from Farber's 2004 show at the gallery, in honor of our buying several of his works from the gallery in the 90s. I always loved sending people who were just starting out as art collectors to Clementine, as I knew Abby and Liz would treat them well.
