A.I.R Gallery

In 1972, a group of women artists founded A.I.R. (Artists in Residence) Gallery—the first artists-run gallery for women in the United States. A.I.R.’s goal is to provide a professional and permanent exhibition space for women artists to present work of quality and diversity. A.I.R. is an artist directed and maintained gallery, providing a sense of community for women and serving as a model for other alternative galleries and organizations. Through lectures, symposia and a Fellowship Program for emerging women artists, A.I.R. Gallery sustains a political awareness and voice, and brings new understanding to old attitudes about women in the arts. A.I.R. primarily accomplishes our goals through our exhibition programs: solo shows of Gallery Artists, sponsored solo shows for our Fellowship Artists, group shows of National & International Artists, and group shows designed to include a broader community of women artists such as our Generations invitational series and our juried Biennial Exhibitions. A.I.R. also meets our mission by addressing topics of concern to the public through lectures and symposia; by bringing the work of our exhibiting artists to the awareness of museums, collectors and critics; by working with interns and volunteers; and by making our archive of materials documenting the nearly 40-year history of A.I.R. available to the public.
