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.
