Waterfall Mansion & Gallery is honored to announce our newest group exhibition, “Infinite Grace,” an exhibition exploring themes of foreignness, belonging, and community. This selection of international contemporary artists is timed to coincide with the opening of Babette’s Feast at the Theatre at St. Clement’s in New York City. Waterfall artist Makoto Fujimura was part of the initial production of Isak Dinesen’s iconic story and will serve as a co-curator of our exhibition, “Infinite Grace.” “Infinite Grace” presents a creative journey inspired by the story of Babette, a refugee whose selfless giving and joy shows a community to embrace true abundance.
Hidden away as a gem in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, is the Waterfall Mansion & Gallery. Kate Shin, founder and developer, envisioned a space that brought art into the frame of lifestyle: "Artful Living."
Before the being converted into the contemporary art gallery it is today, 170 E 80th Street was home to Leslie and D.D. Tillett, two of the most influential textile designers of the postwar era. Their prints were associated with the likes of Claire McCardell and Jacqueline Kennedy. For two generations, the Tillett family artisans and craftsmen used the carriage house as a residence and studio since the 40's. In honor of the heritage of the property, Kate Shin designed the facade directly from a painting of the original building. The home was redesigned to be a state of the art modern gallery. With five floors including a professional grade kitchen, spacious terrace, and rooftop with a skyline view, every area of the house was designed to house prolific contemporary artworks in the context of a high-end modern home.
Each room is thoughtfully curated with Sculpture, Paintings, Photography, Mixed Media, Installations, Ceramics, and Video Arts. The 20-foot indoor waterfall provides a stunning impact while giving the entire gallery space a peaceful and unique environment for art viewing.
Our vision is to create dynamic and powerful artful experiences by working with the artists to create prolific contemporary work. We then work to curate exhibitions that showcase and tell provocative and strong stories and empower people through art education. We build a platform to connect artists to the top 1% of collectors, culture and taste makers, and international opportunities.
