Through its first decade, Thatcher Projects has continued to present a mix of internationally established artists alongside promising young talent. The gallery exhibits a range of mediums with a focus on abstract painting and process. Over time, the exhibition program has broadened to encompass both abstract and figurative idioms, all united by a pivotal attention to concept.
Owner/director Margaret Thatcher brings a long history of integrity and professionalism to the development of the gallery exhibition program, and to the positioning of the gallery in the art community. Throughout most of the 1980’s Ms. Thatcher served as Administrator of Dia Art Foundation, working with Dia-supported artists and the founding Board of Directors to develop the institution’s public programs, including: The Lightning Field (Walter De Maria), Chamberlain Gardens (John Chamberlain), the Dan Flavin installation at Bridgehampton, and various other projects. In the 1990’s, until opening the gallery in 1998, she acted as advisor to art collectors building new contemporary collections.
