Nicelle Beauchene and Jack Hanley Galleries Replace Greenberg Display on Broome
Neighborhood galleries are multiplying quicker than a gremlin in a bathtub. Within the last month or so, no fewer than four showrooms opened across the Lower East Side. Now a pair of already-established showrooms is poised to take over a longtime commercial business on Broome Street.
The 85-year-old Greenberg Display at 327 Broome Street had been a longtime photogenic favorite here at Boogie, thanks to its awesomely eclectic display of mannequins in the window. We must have at least a hundred shots of the exterior. And how not? The all-ages family of plastic models, forever in pose, added a unique touch to this burgeoning gallery block between Chrystie and the Bowery. But their presence here no longer fits with the agenda and move-out is currently in full swing.
Gallerist reports that the Nicelle Beauchene Gallery is departing its longtime perch at 21 Orchard Street, and will be joined by Tribeca transplant Jack Hanley in the same building. Both contemporary art dealers will share the bi-level, 4,000 square-foot space, alternating use of the ground level and upstairs exhibition room.
The new space is slated for a December launch.
