New Neighbor: Pen and Brush

Next week, Pen and Brush officially opens in the Flatiron District with their inaugural visual arts show, “Domesticity Revisited,” and the publication of two novellas, a short story and three poems on its website and publishing platform. For over 121 years, Pen and Brush has been the only international nonprofit organization offering an outlet for women in both the literary and visual arts in the city of New York. 

For the last three years, Pen and Brush underwent a relaunch of its mission to provide a platform to showcase the work of excellent female artists and writers to a broader audience with the ultimate goal of effecting real change within the marketplace. As part of this relaunch, the organization has relocated from Greenwich Village to a 5,500 square foot, state-of-the-art gallery space at 29 East 22nd Street in Flatiron. 

"Pen and Brush is honored to be joining the vibrant Flatiron community.  One of the reasons we selected this location for our new facility and headquarters is because of the dynamic mix of art, culture, media, food, and business that the neighborhood has cultivated.  We couldn't be happier to be opening our doors here to continue furthering our mission of gender equality in art and literature" said Janice Sands, Executive Director of Pen and Brush.

To celebrate the grand opening, Pen and Bush is holding a series of events - to attend simply email rsvp@penandbrush.org with the name of the event in the subject line.

  • October 7, 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.: Flatiron Partnership Preview
  • October 8, 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.:  Re-Launch Opening Party and debut of “Domesticity Revisited,” a group show featuring four international contemporary artists: Jee Hee Kang; Yun Koung Shin; Tricia Wright; and Michela Martello, as curated by Rick Kinsel (Executive Director, The Vilcek Foundation).  These four artists present pieces that deal with traditional notions of domesticity that are spiritual and biographical in orientation, relating to the objects, ideas and sensations around the theme of home. According to Kinsel, “they seem to be pointing us, in visual terms, toward a new world, one more generous in its allowance of all artists – male and female – to enjoy greater freedom, flexibility, and opportunities in the practice of their art.”
  • October 13, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.:  Publication Launch and Readings
  • October 15, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.:  A Talk at P+B by Bina Sarkar Ellias, Founder of International Gallerie
