Thinking Big addresses the significance of both the physical and psychological impact of an artwork’s size in relation to its thematic concerns. Forty one gallery artists are included in this dynamic exhibition of paintings, prints, drawings and sculpture.

The accompanying online catalogue, available in late October, includes each artist’s thoughtful statements on the theme of bigness and an introductory essay by the critic Xico Greenwald.

This show serves as a reminder of the important role played by artist-run cooperatives over the past half century and builds on the recent interest in these galleries generated by the widely acclaimed exhibit “Inventing Downtown” at NYU’s Grey Gallery. Blue Mountain Gallery opened in 1980 as Soho was emerging as an art epicenter. Now located in the heart of Chelsea, its history and continuity form an important contribution to New York’s art world.
