"Solace..." is an artist-organized exhibit that acknowledges artists who turn inward, especially in times of turmoil, to find and inspire calm. 

As artists, we are dreamers. Like so many others, we may want to scream at the unfathomable world around us. Yet, rather than react, for artists the canvas is the platform. We find solace in our work and share that with others.
 
We know full well the temptation to retreat into our own minds. Indeed, without our imagination, we could not create. From childhood, art has been our refuge, but that does not mean that we have to escape into our own world.
 
“Solace” is art speaking. Art offers a place of thoughtfulness and community – a place for the dreams we wish for our world.
 
Gloria Naftali has been a secret guardian angel for over fifty years in Chelsea. It is through her generosity and the West Chelsea Building that the space which was formerly Robert Miller Gallery, is available. While much of the city has succumbed to greed and the real-estate boom, she stands nearly alone with this generosity to artists and to those who exhibit art. We would like to thank Gloria for protecting the artist’s sanctuary; this pop-up exhibition is her legacy.
