Nicola Vassell Opens First Black-Owned Gallery in New York's Chelsea

Artlyst, June 1, 2021

“It’s time for a black owned gallery to inhabit the art world in New York in a really strong dynamic way, “ Nicola Vassell declares. And certainly, the May 20th opening of her gallery could not have been any more fabulous or fortuitous. With New York City just lifting many Covid restrictions, the crowd gathered for the opening represented the city at its most diverse, multicultural and dynamic mix. From fellow gallerists, artists, scenesters to social influencers, an awesome crowd spilled out onto the street.
