The Sacred Gallery in New York is great for so many reasons. Located on 424 Broadway, 2nd Floor (at Canal Street), the space houses a really cool tattoo parlor as well as an art gallery. Everyone you’ll encounter at the Sacred Gallery is really cool and every month, they have a new exhibit showcasing great art. On February 5, 2011, the gallery hosted The Tata Gala (Best of the Breast). Featuring the work of 20 artists, the mixed media show was quite cool. Even better, the opening night reception was a benefit to raise money for breast cancer research! As the name of the show suggests, the exhibit celebrates the female body and the art was quite titillating (sorry, I couldn’t resist).

Dark Visions in Print and Other Images. Now showing at Sacred Gallery NYC through August 29, 2010.
It’s always a pleasure to take a trip to the Sacred Gallery in New York. If tattoos are your thing, the best artists in the business can fix you right up. If you want to see great art that is very affordable, once again the Sacred Gallery has something to satisfy every price range. Their latest exhibit “Dark Visions in Print and Other Images,” features approximately 100 artists and over 150 works in the exhibit. What you’ll see is a collection of macabre images from the most well known artists in the print-making field. The mixed media exhibition features silkscreen, etching, monoprint and other printmaking processes.

I attended the gala opening night party and I had a blast. There are so many great pieces in the exhibit, it’s easy to get overwhelmed as you peruse the gallery. Luckily for us, “Dark Visions” is running until August 29, 2010, so head on down to the Sacred Gallery which is located at 424 Broadway (2nd Floor) at Canal Street. You can see many more images from “Dark Visions” at the Sacred Gallery’s official website (link is above). Special thanks to Kevin at the Sacred Gallery for passing on his knowledge about the artists and works in this exhibit.
