Through an online viewing room, you can enjoy Tchotchke Gallery's inaugural group show 'When Life Doesn’t Give You Lemons', all from the comfort of your own home. On view until 30 October, the show is home to brand new works by 20 established and budding artists by the likes of Lisa Armstrong Noble, Maddy Bohrer, Sydney Bowers, Daisy Dodd Noble, to name a few.
Tchotchke Gallery is a brand new, imaginative gallery founded by Marlee Katz and Danielle Dewar, two former blue-chip gallery working women who have constructed a space that fosters well-established artists across the globe with inclusive exhibitions and educational programming to inspire collectors.
“Tchotchke aims to create a lasting environment where collectors can continually engage with artists and their artwork," says Katz. "Our goal is to cultivate a space for promising artists all while encouraging and supporting their ardent practice.”
The founders selected a program of artists that they strongly support, reflecting a common belief that will bring inspiration and comfort to both novice and seasoned collectors alike. Participating artists were asked what they consistently love and what keeps them motivated during times of uncertainty. When Life Doesn’t Give You Lemons is an exploration of what propels an artist to continually practice when the 'norm' becomes derailed.

Dewar adds, “We aimed to curate a selection of artists that not only resonate with us exclusively but also artists we knew would make an impact across the board, which we believe is paramount in an industry that is emphatically evolving towards a more positive and inclusive space.”
