Gallery 2014, an exciting, new nonprofit concept established to bring the community together to celebrate, enjoy, learn and acquire exceptional artwork of emerging artists from around the globe, is a host venue for the worldwide April 27 Slow Art Day. The all-volunteer event has a simple mission: to help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art.Â At Gallery 2014, participants will look at five works of pre-assigned art at Gallery 2014 for 10 minutes each, and then meet together over lunch to discuss their experience at the nearby Cinquecento Pizza Gelato & CafÃ©. To sign up and for more information, visitÂ www.slowartday.com.Â Slow Art Day began after founder Phil Terry spent 30 minutes looking at Hans Hoffmannâ€™s 1943 paintingÂ FantasiaÂ at the Jewish Museumâ€™s 2008 exhibitionÂ Action/Abstraction. The experience sparked an idea to help those outside the art world better appreciate museumsâ€™ offerings.Â Also on the same day, April 27, Gallery 2014 will be holding their free open house from 6-9 pm. Visit www.gallery2014.comÂ for more information. Participation in Slow Art Day is free. Attendees will pay for their lunch at Cinquecento Pizza Gelato & CafÃ©.
