CURRENT EXHIBITION

Gallery Guide

Edison Price Lighting Gallery is currently exhibiting REFRACTION, a group multimedia exhibition featuring light-inspired artwork. Light’s ubiquity makes it a force beyond our scope. It is understood only through refracted forms—through color, vibrancy, ambiance, tone, and movement. These forms reclaim center stage in REFRACTION. 

REFRACTON features artists who work in, or are inspired by, light: Adrienne Moumin, Alex Rossini, Carlos Inclan, Christine Sciulli, David Chan, Francis Milloy, Garrett Carroll, Gene Lambert, Greg Day, Jason A. Cina, Jason Krugman, John Folchi John Procario, Kenny Greenberg, Leni Morante, Nargiza Usmanova, Peter Bynum, and Stephen Bickford.

REFRACTION was reviewed in the April/May 2017 issue of mondo*arc, the international magazine for designers with light. Read the full article here.

Gallery details

The Edison Price Lighting Gallery celebrates art that is local or light-based. Located in the Long Island City arts and manufacturing community, the Gallery is surrounded by urban artists who craft from raw materials. It is sited above Edison Price Lighting's metal-working factory, where sixty people too craft raw materials with their hands and machines. The two final works -- art and luminaires -- intersect in the Gallery. 

The Gallery joins over 450 art institutions illuminated by Edison Price Lighting. The only difference is here, we encourage you to look up, and reconsider the lighting. Though it has been designed to blend into the architecture, consider the luminaire's interaction with the art. And even consider the luminaire as the culmination of decades of design, and as art itself. 

The Gallery is dedicated to our founder, Edison Price (1918 - 1997), whose innovations – including recessed fixtures with spun aluminum reflectors, continuous lighting track, and wall grazing systems – illuminated many of the most beautiful spaces built in his time. This Gallery is an homage to a man who showed that product design and manufacture can, and should, be pursued as an art.
