Dubbed the “secret gallery” of Murray Hill, Gallery35 has a venerable history. A committee of Community Church of NY UU, its first exhibition was held in September 1966 as part of the dedication of Community Church’s renovated brownstones at 26, 28 and 30 East 35th Street. During the next 20 years the gallery—then known as “Community Gallery”—celebrated diversity by exhibiting the works of Native American, Murray Hill and Chinese artists. One notable show featured a series of John Henry oil paintings by Harlem Renaissance artist Palmer Hayden.
In 2006, a small group of artists, largely members of Community Church, came together and began mounting an annual exhibition of their work. As artist membership grew, so did the number of exhibits—now up to 5 or 6 solo and group shows each year from September through June, including one featuring the work of displaced or refugee artists from such countries as Iraq, Burma and Haiti.
In 2010, the name of the gallery was changed to Gallery35 and later to Gallery35 at Community to reflect its relationship to Community Church. Today over 20 artists—from both the church and the larger community including Murray Hill—regularly exhibit at Gallery35. The artists’ collective includes several nationally known and award-winning artists working in a wide variety of disciplines – as well as artists who have had solo shows throughout the country.
