“I started doing the Calicornucopia exhibits back in 2012 – the first year Calico was open. The main thing I had in mind was accessibility to art. These end-of-year shows always present works priced $300 or less, and this seems to be a very approachable price point. I get folks that are new to buying art coming into Calico for the first time as well as seasoned gallery-goers that recognize what a good deal they may find.
As a gallerist, this big group show is an opportunity to introduce new artists each year to the core group I typically work with, which sometimes leads to future exhibition ideas. It’s also fun to install 100 or more pieces of artwork in my small gallery here in Greenpoint and a nice way to wrap up another year of exhibitions.”Scott Chasse, Founder and Director
With the available art priced at $300 or less, sales are cash-and-carry, or you can purchase online via the Calico website. The gallery will also be open for other available art-for-sale on Saturdays and Sundays from 1-5pm (except Christmas weekend and New Year’s Day).
