| The Grady Alexis Gallery provides a showcase
for established artists, as well as those who are new to the New
York art scene. The Gallery started out in 1979 with a display of
two paintings, generously donated by legendary artist Frank
Stella. It was later renamed in memory of resident artist Grady
Alexis following his tragic death.
Although El Taller is primarily a center of Latin culture - many
Gallery exhibitors are of Latino heritage - visual artists from
all cultural backgrounds are welcome to display their creations
at the Gallery.
Among the many artists that have exhibited at Grady Alexis
El Taller has also worked with other organizations to create art
exhibits. For example, we partnered with Westpark Presbyterian
Church to offer a series of art exhibits as part of A Project of
Latin Music and Art on the Upper West Side.

The arts deepen our understanding of the human spirit, extend
our capacity to comprehend the lives of others, allow us to
imagine a more just and humane world.
I have enjoyed the fantastic art exhibitions here.
This is a unique and special space.

I have had wonderful experiences at El Taller, and have met
people of incredible quality, I also was able to show my artwork
there and had a good turn out. I am just one of many hispanic
artists who get to show their art at this wonderful space.
