NEW YORK — Like many big-city art galleries, Williamsburg, Brooklyn-based NURTUREart is on the lookout for new artists, as well as curators. The gallery, which is a nonprofit entity, was started in 1997 by George J. Robinson, a former high school teacher and art dealer. The gallery puts on lecture series and exhibitions, and also offers a unique free service that allows an artist to register his or her artwork with the gallery so that independent curators and interior designers can find art to suit their visions.

“Our goals are aimed at the public,” Robinson said. “Curators need artists, artists need curators and the public needs both. It’s a symbiotic relationship between art and the public.”
For its 18th exhibition, running through Dec. 21 at the NURTUREart Gallery in Brooklyn, featured works range from found-object sculptures to photography, painting and collage. The 12 artists are Kristin Anderson, Sandra Bermudez, William Crow, Rebecca Hackemann, Deidre Hoguet, Stephanie Brody-Lederman, Patrick Meagher, Keiko Miyamori, Hyungsub Shin, Yuken Teruya, Marina Tserarskaya and Peter Walsh.
