Art from Tribal Cultures

Opening Reception:  Thursday, June 7, 6 – 8 pm

Hours of Operation: Tuesday – Saturday, 10 am – 6 pm

The title of the show “It’s All Spiritual” reflects the belief that all great art - to some degree or another - has a spiritual component and that nowhere is this seen better than in the tribal arts from remote cultures throughout the world. Here the spiritual and functional collide and the result is a formal beauty which can be appreciated universally.


On June 7th through July 27th, Betty Cuningham Gallery will host an exhibition of Tribal Art curated by Alan Steele in the gallery on West 25th Street in Chelsea, New York.

The objects come from a variety of regions and cultures including Native American, Meso American, Melanesian, Polynesian, Indonesian, African and Chinese.  Each piece has been selected by Alan Steele for its unique qualities including rarity, age, intrinsic beauty and relevance to contemporary art. The pieces have been gathered from many important private and public collections.
