Artist Member News: Gwen Shockey
Gwen Shockey has been a member of Amos Eno Gallery since 2013. Her work was recently added to the collection of the Leslie Lohman Museum located at 26 Wooster Street in New York, NY.
Shockey's work is featured in Expanded Visions: Fifty Years of Collecting, the inaugural exhibition in the newly renovated and vastly expanded Museum space, Expanded Visions: Fifty Years of Collecting, is a historic collection show with approximately 250 works on view. Expanded Visions mines the rich cultural coffers of the Museum's collection to trace the evolution of our institution, amid decades of shifting social conditions. The exhibition presents a survey of the collection initiated by the Museum co-founders, Charles Leslie and Fritz Lohman, who have spent more than 50 years amassing artworks that speak directly to the LGBTQ experience. Their early efforts yielded one of the most unique archives of work that would have otherwise been lost or destroyed, which comprises the core of the Museum’s collection that now houses more than 30,000 objects.
We are proud to have a relief print by Shockey currently on view in Chromacide: An Exhibition in Grayscale.
