LICARTISTS, INC. WILL OPEN ITS FIRST GROUP SHOW IN MANHATTAN, HOSTED BY ATLANTIC GALLERY, IN CHELSEA NEAR THE HIGHLINE IN JANUARY 2015.
ATLANTIC GALLERY IS ONE OF THE LONGEST ESTABLISHED COOPERATIVE ART GALLERIES IN NEW YORK CITY. AS ITS NAME SUGGESTS, IT BEGAN ON ATLANTIC AVENUE IN BROOKLYN HEIGHTS.

In 1974 painters and print-makers founded Atlantic Gallery in Brooklyn as an artists' cooperative. In 1979 Atlantic Gallery migrated to SoHo, and in 2007 to Chelsea, having added photographers and sculptors to its community of emerging and established artists. 2012 saw Atlantic Gallery move further west to the Landmark Arts Building at 548 West 28th Street, close to a stairway to the High Line. The historic building, which also has an entrance at 547 West 27th Street, is home to more than two dozen art galleries.
Born from the energy of ’70’s New York art scene, Atlantic Gallery exhibitions continue to focus on innovation and excellence. As an organization of independent artists, Atlantic Gallery is committed to supporting creative freedom and promoting professionalism.
THE INTERIOR DESIGN OF ATLANTIC GALLERY'S CURRENT LOCATION in the Landmark Arts Building was created by LIC-A member and President, CAROL CRAWFORD
