It’s hard to be an artist. It’s even harder to be a black artist or female artist or queer artist or any other artist that the majority of public audiences aren’t used to seeing, understanding, or valuing enough to invest in. DOMINIQUE GALLERY respects these artists and serves as a space where they can exist, be seen, and valued. While the physical space is important, creating a virtual space for artists and audiences to engage with one another is also hugely important and integral to the gallery mission.
