About Central Features

Central Features Contemporary Art is a gallery that promotes the intrinsic value of art-making in contemporary society, with a featured emphasis on the artist's role in environmental stewardship and social progress. Through a rigorously curated exhibition and event program that borrows from commercial and non-commercial practices, Central Features asks: How might art translate and transform the human condition in a relevant, discernible, and local context? Gallery artists, patrons, and collectors are those who are invested in the aesthetic side of a responsible life on Earth. 

Please note: Central Features does not accept unsolicited proposals.
