Blue Mountain Gallery, founded in 1980, is located in the heart of New York City’s Chelsea art district, and is sponsoring its second Annual Juried Exhibition in 2014-15. The gallery’s exhibitions are frequently reviewed in both the New York and national press. Our invitationals are part of the gallery’s outreach to the artist community. With this juried exhibition we are offering artists from across the United States, not only the opportunity to exhibit in an established New York gallery, but also to have their work reviewed by John Dubrow.

Recently, he had a mid-career retrospective at the Demuth Museum in Lancaster, PA.
