About:
Upstream Gallery was founded in 1991 by artists who came of age in New York during the 50’s and 60’s. The gallery continues a long tradition of artists presenting their own work, from the independent Impressionist salons and exhibitions of 19th century France to the artist-run galleries of mid-century Manhattan. Our founding artists created a vibrant gathering place where community comes together, celebrating art in many forms.
