Gallery House is a unique, private gallery space that is used to host fundraising, fine art exhibitions at absolutely no cost. The only parties that financially benefit from our exhibitions are the artists and charitable organizations involved. This historical Brownstone dating back to 1877 is being meticulously restored while being graciously used by artist. Gallery House is a Clinton Hill program of the DGT Foundation, Inc.. Gallery House is dedicated to the sharing of ideas pressing our world today by giving back to the local community through our hosted receptions. We aim to gather and communicate said ideas through art, music and other types of artistic expression.
The Gallery House Program
The Gallery House Program is a semester-long fellowship program for Pratt Institute students in all fields of study taught at Pratt. The program is provided in coordination with the Center for Career and Professional Development at Pratt Institute.
Participants will gain real-life experience in curating, planning, promoting, setting up and managing an exhibit of creative works. Each exhibit is set up to benefit a local charity selected by students of the program. Fellows will each receive academic credit or a monetary grant at the completion of their semester project, and may be invited and selected to participate in subsequent events with Gallery House.
Gallery House’s 2016 Fellowships are awarded to Åsa Maria Camnert, Aigerim Mukhambetova, and August Ou. As the team of three, they are collaborating with Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator (BF + DA) and MiA Collective Art to present an exhibition that will artistically and financially benefit the participating artists and organizations for their future project opportunities.
