Since 1973 Heller Gallery has been recognized for playing a seminal role in promoting contemporary sculpture that employs glass as its touch stone medium. For nearly four decades Heller has exhibited the premier international artists working in glass and has been a valuable resource for artists, museums, collectors, public institutions and studios worldwide. Numerous artworks have entered prestigi

ous public collections as a direct result of the Gallery’s exhibitions and advocacy. New York's Museum of Modern Art and Metropolitan Museum of Art have acquired works from the gallery for their collections as have The Corning Museum of Glass, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art and numerous museums abroad, including Victoria & Albert Museum, Musee des Arts Decoratifs de Louvre, and Hokkaido Museum, among others. The artists who exhibit at Heller work in a broad range of styles and techniques and explore subject matter equally diverse. Some take on the material itself, testing its limits in monumental sculptures or exploring its fundamental qualities in works that play with the interactions of color, light, transparency and form. Others are more interested in delving into emotion and myth or commenting on art history and do so in more expressive styles, casting figurative sculptures, painting on glass or composing elaborate assemblages of objects and images. bi-level space located at 420 W.14th Street just down the street from the acclaimed new High Line Park. It is easily accessible by car, subway or bus: The West Side Hwy is two blocks away; there are several parking lots nearby and free parking on the street after 4pm. On foot the gallery is a short walk from the 14th Street stops on both the 8th Ave. With exhibitions featuring new work by both internationally acclaimed and emerging artists Heller Gallery remains a unique destination in New York City’s vibrant contemporary art scene.

One last week for Matthew Day Perez’s Accumulation show & also for Heller Gallery’s Chelsea location. We will be open through this Saturday, May 18. Please stop by to help us say good-bye to 303 10th Avenue, the space where we have been for the past 11 of the 51 years the gallery has operated seven sequential locations in Manhattan.

Matthew’s Gray Pool is one of three new pieces in which a thicker casting and a polished front surface create a tantalizing and elegant sense of depth. Like looking at a treasure you’ve just discovered at the bottom of the sea.

Congratulations to Norwood Viviano on the Delphi Award he is receiving today from the Smithsonian Women’s Committee in Washington, D.C! Happily, the celebration coincides with the release of his newest piece Mining Industries: Midtown Manhattan. The piece, for which the LiDar data long remained elusive due to security concerns, shows in spectacular detail some of the most iconic cityscape - New York City’s midtown Manhattan - with both the Empire State and the Chrysler buildings captured here.

And, if you are in the DC area tomorrow, Norwood, along with Visionary award recipients Judith Schaechter & Dan Daily, will be in conversation with Smithsonian American Art Museum and Renwick Gallery Director, Stephanie Stebich, on a panel titled Trio in Glass - 1-2pm at the National Building Museum.

Accumulation, our second solo exhibition of new work by Matthew Day Perez, features this four-part piece. It is part of the GRADE series which has evolved since 2019, when the first six-part piece was selected and included in Corning Museum’s 2019 New Glass Now exhibition. This latest iteration is much more dynamic with a satiny surface quality.

A Focus: Anja Isphording installation features six of the most recent works Anja made over the course of the last two years. Her singular and remarkable objects draw from nature in surprising and breathtaking ways, using colors and forms that juxtapose the strong and the delicate. If you are in Chelsea on this gray & windy Saturday, please stop in to see them in person.

This is the final week of Kim Harty’s exhibition Birthing Anatomies! Using her considerable skill as a glassmaker and the material’s innate ability to represent the complex physicality of human organ forms, her pieces provoke contemplation of the beautiful as well as the grotesque aspects of the human body. Her work in Birthing Anatomies deals with themes of reproductive justice and bodily autonomy, equal rights, and democratic freedom.

The exhibition runs through this Saturday, April 13.

04/08/2024

Working with Libenský & Brychtová pieces from private collections entering the secondary market over the past several years, we have had the privilege of continuing to be in daily touch with their work, and are remembering Jaroslava Brychtová, who passed away four years ago today.

Jaroslava was the quiet strength and the backbone in the creative partnership she and Stanislav Libenský shared. While she described their work as ‘my sculpture for your drawing’, intuitively subjugating her work to Stanislav’s vision, the pieces — many monumental in scale and always in spirit — would never take form without her. Corning Museum of Glass’ wonderful tribute to her in their IG post yesterday, recalls her contributions to the process of casting she helped pioneer. A feat that much more impressive, because during some of the most deadening years of Czechoslovak Communist ‘normalization’ (1968-89), while many blue-collar jobs were ‘gender-blind’ as a matter of socialist principle, the society remained heavily male-chauvinistic and yet she successfully ran an almost all-male team for more than two decades. Her quiet demeanor belied someone with courage, vision and tenacity beyond imagination. In her NYT obituary in 2020, Steven Kurutz wrote: “Though admirers and critics focused on the massiveness of her work, Ms. Brychtová insisted…that scale was not the biggest challenge. “It’s ideas that are hard to get to, not size,” she said.”

File this under ‘gone, but never forgotten.’

This is the first weekend of Accumulation, exhibition of new work by Matthew Day Perez, which just opened on Thursday. The ten new fused and cast glass wall pieces included in the show are physical manifestations of accumulated and dispersed materials - used as metaphors for identity, skilling, growth, and mutability. This is one of our favorite installation views. Open today till 6pm.

Please join us tomorrow 6-8pm for the opening of Accumulation, a show of new work by Brooklyn-based Matthew Day Perez. The new work focuses on Matthew’s interest in the mutability of material and ideas related to accumulation, piling, or collecting. Starting from detritus readily available in a glass studio each work is tethered by heat, time, and gravity to emboss, shape, or freeze particles into the glass. .

Ten more days to see our Michiko Sakano exhibition, featuring her new lighting collection title Droplets. Michiko says she wanted to go back to freeing her own process and making the glass the primary focus of the fixture. The resulting lights are a form that captures a sense of movement, like it is pushing towards something, a force in motion, not rigid and stiff.

The exhibition runs through March 23, 2024.

Today we are celebrating & honoring International Women’s Day with our current exhibition, Birthing Anatomies, work by Kim Harty.

Even though this collection of Kim’s work started with the impetus of the Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health decision, the work proves timely in the face of recent restrictive recent legislation and resonates broadly, echoing the words of Jamelle Bouie for the NYT: “You cannot disentangle abortion from reproductive rights. You cannot disentangle reproductive rights from bodily autonomy. And you cannot disentangle bodily autonomy from basic questions of equal rights and democratic freedom.”

Birthing Anatomies, our second solo exhibition of new work by Kim Harty opens next Thursday, March 7. The exhibition focuses on pieces Kim made over the past 18 months to address ideas around reproduction and the body following the Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization ruling.  The work grapples with themes of reproductive justice and societal perceptions of reproductive anatomy through abstraction.

Birthing Anatomies will open with a 5-7pm reception for Kim, who will be here in person. Please join us!

A singular voice among artists making with glass, Anja Isphording’s intricate, small scale cast sculptures resonate with her close observation of nature both in form and color. And so her newest piece, #193, which we finally received over the weekend, starts at the bottom with a warm reddish amber gently transforming, as the body of the piece rises, into an yellow-green olive color. A subtle transition over the spiraling ribs of an imaginary flower/pod. It is an ode to both nature & Anja’s imagination.

We are pleased to have a group of five works by Anja currently on view in the gallery. They are best seen in person!
