About the Gallery

Locus Media Gallery was established in 1998 by Sam P. Israel, a New York City lawyer with a political point of view, and a commitment to integrating art with a social consciousness. Read about Sam Israel in New York Lawyer by clicking here.

The gallery exhibits artists working in a variety of styles and mediums including painting, works on paper, sculpture, photography, and video. The philosophy of the Locus Media Gallery is to combine a strong relationship to the artists that it presents, with a gallery schedule that reflects thematic concerns.

Benefit evenings have been held at the gallery space to raise funds for numerous organizations. Recipients of these efforts have included The New York Foundling Hospital, Girls Write Now, The Asia Society, and The Dream Big Literacy Program.

Locus Media Gallery has been the setting for readings by authors and poets, and performances by actors and musicians. These activities were an integral part of the visual art presentations, and have been chronicled in The New York Times - From Dickens to Dinosaurs, The New York Times, Friday, December 4, 1998, New York Magazine, and Time Out.

In 2003, Marcia G. Yerman joined the gallery staff. Ms. Yerman has been involved in the artworld for over twenty years. She received her BFA from Tufts University, and a Four Year Diploma from the School of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. As a curator, she has sought to bring women artists to the attention of the public through diverse projects. As an artist, her work chronicles her emotional universe through personal iconography.
