Ed. Varie is a Gallery and Book Store in Alphabet City. Inspired by the fundamentals of open programming, Ed. Varie fosters all forms of contemporary art, and encourages artists to explore new concepts and take uncharted risks in their Practice of Art. Opened in February 2010 under the guidance and support of founder Karen Schaupeter, Ed. Varie has become an anchor for emerging artists, and a home to the contemporary art community.
With a mission to bring artists in the early stages of their careers to the large and influential art market in Manhattan, Ed. Varie mentors and represents a wide range of artists, national and international; as well as maintains a beautiful and highly curated bookstore of limited edition art books from independent and micro-niche publishers.
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.
Happy Autumn Equinox and Fall Weather!
In order to maintaing the spontaneous nature of Ed. Varie we are keeping our head low and lips sealed about what we are doing in the upcoming months! I CAN tell you that we have some behind the scenes work to do, like web building and administrative homework that will keep us far from getting into (big) trouble!
****On a side note
If you know anyone looking to dig into the nitty gritty of gallery admin and archiving, or a great web developer interested on working on a rad project for major karma points, (and a little cash), please send them our way, info(at)edvarie(dot)com
Feel free to spread the word!
See you soon!
