The First Black Woman-Owned Art Gallery Opens in New York's Chelsea Neighborhood

Andrea Blackstone, Black Enterprise, June 3, 2021

As the world begins to slowly reopen for business and pleasure, an art dealer and curator opened an art gallery in New York. According to its website, the Nicola Vassell Gallery is committed to discourse that widens the lens of the history and future of art. The New York Times reported that Vassell opened her own exhibition space on Tenth Avenue in the heart of Chelsea. The rare contemporary art gallery represents a bold business move, especially in light of doom-filled predictions about the future of brick-and-mortar galleries and pandemic-enforced efforts to build online sales, according to The New York Times.
