Welcome from Gertrude!

We saw a very inspiring increase in the number of followers over the last 12 hours and thought it would be a great time to welcome you to our site and tell you a bit about what Gertrude is doing. Gertrude is a community for unique art experiences. We host Salons - intimate occasions to learn, discuss and collect art curated by today’s visionaries. Gertrude is based in NYC and is expanding quickly to bring our premier experience to the world.

Each Salon is a 1-hour long event, featuring a maximum of 10 works from one artist each time. The goal of Salons is to create an intimate atmosphere where people can gather around and learn, discuss and collect works. 

Our blog is the perfect extension of our Salons, meant to enhance your education and access to artists world-wide. We focus on artists Gertrude loves, as well as events and must-see exhibitions. As we grow, our Editorial content will be developing more to include interviews with artists, recorded studio visits, and maybe even live streamed events. Please let Gertrude know what you would like to see!

If you are interested in following Gertrude on other social media outlets, you can find her on twitter, Facebook and instagram. We are happy that you found us and look forward to participating in discussions on contemporary art with you through Tumblr!

Thank you Tumblropenarts for all of your support!
