11th Annual Benefit Art Show

Introducing artist Bipasha Hayat’s newest exhibition.

New York: After a challenging year, Galleria On Third, now in its 22nd year, is proud to announce its 11th Benefit Art Show (first one in over two years) as they introduce artists Bipasha Hayat’s newest exhibition Monolgues beginning November 22 – December 12, 2021. Money raised will benefit the New York Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.

Located in Murray Hill, Galleria on Third was founded by Shadin Hossain, who came to this country over 28 years ago. He has built one of the City’s top framing shops and galleries and prides himself on customer service and quality work, garnering him some of the most positive google reviews in New York City.

This benefit art show will feature Bipasha Hayat, an award-winning artist, actress, and playwright for Bangladesh. As an artist, Hayat has had solo exhibitions at NY’s Transform Gallery, as well as in Seoul, Korea, Rome, Italy, and Dhaka, Bangladesh, winning Honorable Mention Award in the 17th Asian art biennale in Bangladesh. She has been invited to present her work in over 50 group shows throughout the world, including Warsaw, Poland, Seoul, Korea, Bangladesh, Alliance Francaise de Dhaka, Athens, Greece, Rogue Gallery in New York, and Bangladesh Embassy, Bangkok, Thailand.

“I have been very blessed to be a part of such an amazing city, who welcomed me so many years ago. I am thrilled to introduce Bipasha Hayat our audience. Her work is powerful ad thoughtful. I am also happy to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association, which does such great and necessary work.” Galleria on Third owner, Shadin Hossain “While living in Libya as a young person, I observed the ruins of the Ancient Roman civilization firsthand. These remnants resonated with me and would become the foundation for my art. It’s as though these ancient remains told my story amongst these old stones and unidentified writing. At its essence, my work is the reflection of memories, past, and present, resonating in one constant continuum. I am honored to be featured in Galleria on Third’s Benefit Art Show and to support the work of the Alzheimer’s Association.” Artist, Bipasha Hayat

Galleria on Third / Shadin Hossain began hosting Benefit Art Shows over 15 years ago; the goal was to raise money and awareness by selling art to benefit a variety of charities, including World Vision, Smile Train, Bellevue Hospital, Clean Water Initiative, and many more. His dedication to helping others garnered him the title of NY1’s NYer of the Week as well as landed him on the pages of the New York Daily News (‘I don’t know what I can give this city, but I’ll do my best’) and has helped his shop stay on top of a fluctuating market.

In addition to their charitable work, Galleria on Third (3rd & 36th Street, NYC) has also featured the work of up-and-coming artists, as well as celebrated artists including Romero Brito, DeLaVega, Marc Tetro, and fashion icon and TV personality Carson Kressley and news personality Sandy Kenyon.

About Galleria on Third’s Shadin Hossain

Shadin Hossain migrated from Bangladesh to New York City when he was 17 years old. He arrived without knowledge of the culture or the language and was thrilled to be employed in any job that would have him. After many years he landed a job that would soon become his career; he was hired by a small framing shop. Art has always been a lifetime hobby when he was in Bangladesh, but working in NY left little time to work on his craft, but his enthusiasm for art was a determining factor in his success at the framing shop, and he truly excelled beyond expectations. Shadin followed his American dream and opened his own farming gallery, and is celebrating 22 years in business. After years of advising and framing other artist’s work, Shadin has finally returned to his youthful passion and is creating his own original artwork. He has developed a process that transforms fine art prints into sophisticated three-dimensional designs that have been received by his patrons with great enthusiasm. He continues to develop mixed –medium pieces that are eye-popping, unique, and whimsical that truly encapsulate his sense of charity and generosity.
