About The Peanut Gallery
The Peanut Gallery produces unique thematic pop-up exhibitions that are designed to engage a larger art community with meaningful talent and relevant art. We eschew the curatorial structure of conventional galleries by organizing exhibitions around subjects of popular interest reflected in the works of both emerging and established artists. Our pop-up exhibitions, together with our Virtual Peanut Gallery, provide a physical and online platform for our artists to reach a new audience and for our audience to reach a new awareness.
Our mission is to make art more accessible and more relatable to a more inclusive art community. The Peanut Gallery is about getting more people involved in showing, viewing, critiquing, acquiring, enjoying and talking about art. Whether you're cheering the art or throwing some peanuts, we want art to matter to you, and we want to help you discover the art that you will treasure.
