An artist herself, Grace Miceli began Art Baby Gallery as an inexpensive way to continue her love of speaking to other artists and observing their work that she gained in art school. And though Grace has an impressive portfolio, filled with art us LE SIGH ladies greatly admire, she admits to the newness of her curatorial ideas, but shamelessly. The name "Art Baby" exudes playfulness and is reflective of the gallery's freshness and also the young, undefined nature of the art displayed.
It's original, new, and though I've made it sound like it has a more-or-less rigid theme, it really doesn't; digitality, yes, but innovation, yes times two. Art Baby embraces its lack of boundaries, and will press on with the same exuberance we adore. "I've found some online galleries take themselves pretty seriously and act more as a digital mirror to spaces you might find in Chelsea, and I'm pretty sure that's the opposite of what I'm doing," Grace said. "I mean, I had an exhibition solely dedicated to cats."
