Ed. Varie is an independent gallery and bookstore in the East Village’s Alphabet City. With the mission to bring artists in the early stages of their career to the large and influential art market in Manhattan, that is historically, and increasingly difficult to permeate, Ed.Varie has become an anchor for new artists, and a home to the contemporary art community.
Inspired by the fundamentals of open programming, Ed. Varie fosters all forms of contemporary art, and offers a platform for artists to explore new concepts and take uncharted risks in their practice. Ed. Varie exhibits and represents a wide range of artists, national and international; as well maintains a beautiful and highly curated bookstore of limited edition art books from independent and micro-niche publishers.
In the spring of 2012 Ed. Varie became a member of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts organization. Ed. Varie is now able to apply for grants, fundraise and accept tax deductible donations as a charitable non-profit organization! Financial contributions and donations allow Ed. Varie to continue to be a place holder for emerging and mid-career artist from all disciplines, from all over the globe to evolve and flourish with representation in Manhattan.
Donations can be directly made HERE and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
Ed. Varie is located in Manhattan at 618 E. 9th St. between Ave B and C. Just off Tompkins Square Park, you can take the L to 1st Ave; F to 2nd Ave; or 6 to Astor Place.
We are open Saturdays and Sundays 12-5pm, and as always, also by appointment.
