Since then there have been over 150 exhibitions, and Mr. Siegel’s now historic Fifteen Questions, “Is Beauty the Making One of Opposites?” first published in the opening announcement of the gallery and reprinted later that year in the Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism, have been the basis for selecting and exhibiting work.

PRESS RELEASE FOR "THIS GREAT, DIVERSE CITY--HOW SHOULD WE SEE IT?: CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHS - March 31, 2011 through September:
The Terrain Gallery is proud to show the work of twenty
photographers whose images capture the rich diversity
of people, cultures, neighborhoods, architecture, and
feelings in New York. Through images in black and
white and color, and comment by the photographers
and others, this grand, historic city is shown as having
“a oneness of quiet and tumult, profundities and mischief,”

to get to the whole world, and New York,” he said, “is a
good place to begin to be fair to reality as such.”
