Polaroids of the Uprise Art team.

To celebrate 12 years of Uprise Art, our team counts off the gallery's milestones – big and small.

1Gallery dog: Sasha. She's kind of a big deal.

2Artist duos. On our roster, Jessica Haye and Clark Hsiao work collaboratively under the moniker The Collaborationist, while Adam Frezza and Terri Chiao show together as CHIAOZZA. Team work makes the dream work.

3Neighborhoods. Our gallery sits at the intersection of Tribeca, SoHo, and Chinatown.

4Locations. Since opening we've called four spaces our home. We started in our founder's West Village apartment, moved around the corner to Gansevoort Street (down the block from the Whitney Museum), headed downtown to NoHo, and then settled into our current location on Canal Street, where we've been for the past 7 years.

5United States Embassies. We've partnered with the U.S. Department of State to place artworks in locations across the world, including Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Mozambique, Pakistan, and Switzerland.

6Continents. Uprise Art artists live and work in 17 different countries, from South Africa to Singapore.

7Cities. We've shown at art fairs on the west coast, from San Francisco and Seattle, made stops in Houston and Miami, and traveled all over New York and the Hamptons. This past March we took our first trip out of the country, traveling to Art Central Hong Kong.

8Artist residencies. We've hosted eight week-long residencies for artists at MacArthur Place in Sonoma, California to gather inspiration and create new work.

9 — Days to open. During 2020, when most galleries closed their doors, we took the opportunity while our team worked from home to build out a dedicated exhibition space.

10Artworks on screen. You can spot artworks from the gallery in TV series such as Blindspot, Only Murders in the Building, and Making It, and films like Leave the World Behind, The Time Traveler's Wife, and Tick, Tick...Boom!.

11Artists represented in 2011. We now represent over 150 emerging artists, working in mediums ranging from painting to site-specific installation.

12Years of Uprise Art. We started with a single goal - to help people discover artwork they love. Over time, we expanded to a full calendar of exhibitions and art fairs, launched advisory services, and curated thousands of original works for the spaces where you live, work, and gather. Today, we continue to share artists' unique perspectives.
