GALLERY 6/67 NAME CHANGE
Dear Friends of Gallery 6/67:
As of January 1st 2019, Gallery 6/67 will change its name to Erica Broussard. This change reflects the business’s focus on personal relationships, and its growth beyond an art gallery and into an increasingly diversified entity which provides a spectrum of art related services (sales, curatorial, artist development, collector consulting, etc.). In alignment with the adoption of this new name, this website will become ericabroussard.com and the Instagram account will become ericabroussardart.
A little over two years ago, I started Gallery 6/67 in a 98 square foot gallery with the simple goal of providing a venue for underrepresented and historically marginalized artists to share their work with the world. Today, thanks to the many wonderful people who share my passion for saying, “have you seen that amazing Artist” rather than saying, “have you seen that <fill in the blank> - American artist” this undertaking has steadily increased its reach and ability to assist artists.
The choice to use my maiden name, Broussard, is a nod to my Father, an ardent, African-American entrepreneur and fearless gambler when it came to pursuing his passion. As we do now, Erica Broussard Gallery will strive everyday to continue his spirit.
As always, thank you to everyone for your support.
We are very pleased to announce that Shasha Dothan was awarded the Israeli Ministry of Culture Prize for a Young Artist 2018. Congratulations!
אני שמחה וגאה לבשר שזכיתי בפרס אמן צעיר של משרד התרבות והספורט לשנת 2018. תודה לשופטות ולשופטים שבחרו בי. אני מקווה שבשנת 2019 אמשיך ליצור אמנות שמעלה שאלות מאתגרות ומייצרת דיונים .
CONGRATULATIONS TO MONICA IKEGWU FOR WINNING AN XL CATLIN ART PRIZE!
The XL Catlin Art Prize is a new juried art contest and traveling exhibition of 40 two-dimensional figurative works (paintings, drawings, and original prints.) The contest launches this fall through press, social media and direct institutional outreach.
The XL Catlin Art Prize in the US builds on a 10-year legacy of the XL Catlin Art Prize in the UK which recognized young artists through a prestigious London exhibition and catalog publication. The prize established a reputation as an insightful overview of emerging talent.
Contact Gallery 6/67 for more information about Monica’s work.
Very special thanks to the LA Times and Ada Tseng for her profile of the Super Sarap show and dinner in November. Please show Ada love and gratitude on Twitter @adatseng.

Queens International biennial - October 2018
Established in 2002, the Queens International highlights the contemporary cultural production of communities in the borough. Organized by Sophia Marisa Lucas, assistant curator at the Queens Museum, and the New York–based performance artist Baseera Khan, this year’s edition will explore systems of knowledge production in the digital and analog realms. Taking inspiration from the historical emergence of the public library and its ability to confront cultural changes brought about by the internet, “Volumes” will focus on the role of artists as “professional non-specialists” who are able to encapsulate our everyday virtual lives.
