SOHO20 Gallery was founded in 1973 by a group of women artists intent on achieving professional excellence in an industry where there was a gross lack of opportunities for women to succeed. SOHO20 was one of the first galleries in Manhattan to showcase the work of an all-woman membership and most of the members joined the organization as emerging artists. These artists were provided with exhibition opportunities that they couldn’t find elsewhere. As a result of their involvement with the gallery, they were recognized more widely. The achievements of many SOHO20 artists have been reported in many notable publications.After 42 years in Manhattan, SOHO20 relocated to the Brooklyn neighborhood of Bushwick in August 2015; its informal, site-specific name—SOHO20 Chelsea—reverted to SOHO20 Gallery.
