Tiwa Select is a gallery and platform celebrating the ever-evolving culture of craft, and the unexpectedness of the handmade.

Tiwa Select champions self-taught artists and makers by introducing the functional objects that they make to audiences, and connecting time-honored traditions to a life lived in the present.

We are inviting a world that eschews over-production and excessive consumption; in doing so, we are pushing for the survival of traditional craft forms that are created with time, kindness, and humility.

Above all, we want to encourage people to absorb the beauty of everyday objects as they move through the world.

Tiwa Select acknowledges its presence on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Lenape people.

Tiwa Select is committed to making its website accessible to all people. If you are having difficulty viewing the content on this website, please email



Tiwa Select will be opening at 181 Mott Street, New York City, in early 2023. The space will host an annual program of exhibitions, principally celebrating artists with non-conventional art backgrounds. As well, 181 Mott will welcome in other galleries and initiatives though out the year for additional programming and events.
