Gallery Closed is a unique public-facing experimental art space in Troy Hill, Pittsburgh, run by artists Phillip Andrew Lewis and Lenka Clayton. Conceived during the pandemic, the gallery is designed to be permanently “closed”, yet at the same time continuously open.
All exhibited work can only be viewed through two street-facing windows, the door always remains closed. At night the gallery is brightly lit, so that artwork is visible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Gallery Closed is for everyone and specifically embraces its accidental audience of neighborhood passers-by.
Gallery Closed’s first season featured the work of 27 internationally renowned artists including Philip Glass, widely regarded as one of the most influential living musical composers, photographer and MacArthur fellow Deborah Willis, and Pulitzer Prize winning artist Raven Chacon.
We are now fundraising to commission site-specific solo exhibitions by four artists/artist teams for Gallery Closed Season Two.
