Since Cross Contemporary Partners was successfully launched on July 1, we have had 225K total visits to our website, Artsy listings directed primarily by our social media platforms and the platforms of our advertising partners. Our second launch was on Sept. 15 and the final launch date is March 1, 2021 which will complete our capacity of 30 artists. All of our participating artists, viewing rooms and our digital exhibitions are presented on our website Cross Contemporary Partners. Cross Contemporary Partners also presents special projects in the "real world" as we are invited to curate in analog spaces- our latest venue was the Kingston Design Connection Show House that was open thru Dec 13th in Kingston, NY.
We are currently organizing a group exhibition of small works by all CCP program artists in the Joyce Goldstein Gallery in Chatham, NY for May-June 2021.
The Year-Long Program Agenda
We create digital exhibitions for each artist with1 solo exhibition with a 2-week promotion campaign which can then be embedded into the artist’s page on our website as well as on the artist's personal website plus 2 group exhibitions with at least one curated by an outside professional. So far, we have scheduled two curators: Dominique Nahas (January) and Anthony Haden-Guest (February).
We have created two virtual inaugural exhibitions of our current artists which can be viewed here and here. We have also introduced Viewing Rooms on our website which currently feature the political art of Sol Hill and John A. O'Connor as well as a Holiday Art Exhibition of work for under $1000 (also sponsored by Art and Object). Our latest solo exhibition features the paintings of Dellamarie Parrilli. Because of the pandemic, we have started to tape Instagram LIVE virtual studio visits- our first one with painter Francie Lyshak can be viewed here.
Our tools for promoting our artists, their events and 3-D Virtual Exhibitions are:

Articles about our program have been featured in Art News Daily and Culture Catch and our current viewing room for Art Under $1000 is featured in Art & Object and we were recently covered in Architectural Digest.
Our selling platform is Artsy.net and you can see how this looks here Although we have art sale goals, we don’t think any marketer or galleries can guarantee anything in this strange time but what we can guarantee is that your name and career will be well documented on the internet and affiliated with respected institutions, art magazines, press and platforms.
With our 3-D gallery, we hope to create interest with institutions in hosting our virtual shows in their space. We have a budget for advertising in relevant online arts periodicals such as Culture Catch, Art News Daily as well as our current placement in Art & Object and Art in America’s artguidepro.
We only have 5 placements left until we are at capacity. The cost for the year starting March 1 is $7500.00 ($3750 due Feb 1; $3750 due Feb. 28 and each artist receives a tailored program of at least 4 supported events (one every 3 months) as well as complete social media coverage on any and all projects they need to promote during that time.
This program includes a 500 Word Critic’s Essay, Artist Statement, Biography, 2-Page Press Release, 1 Page E- Release, and Pitch Letters to the Non-profit, Commercial, and Media Sectors for artists that sign up before March 1, 2021 ($2500 value)
