Posted June 10, 2015 at 5:10 am

Yes, there are too many galleries on the Lower East Side. But, really, what’s one more, right? Lyles & King is one of the latest entrants to the scene, scooping up the long-vacant cellar space at 106 Forsyth Street. The new 1,500 square-foot showroom – forged by the collective mind of Isaac Lyles and journalist wife […]

The smallish showroom now resides on the […]

Andrew Edlin Moving from Chelsea Gallery Space to the Bowery

Posted June 4, 2015 at 5:17 am

The small colony of restaurant supply businesses on the Bowery is down another. The Soho Sammy supply company at 212 Bowery, which just consolidated its footprint earlier this year, is not long for the world. Its three-decade tenure comes at the expense of the Chelsea art scene. Longtime dealer and fair organizer Andrew Edlin ditched […]

Chelsea’s CRG Gallery is Moving to Chrystie Street Next Fall

Posted May 29, 2015 at 5:10 am

It’s a total cliche at this point. Small Chelsea gallery wooed by the Lower East Side packs up the showroom and moves. This narrative has been repeated time and again the last decade. The latest art house to hop onto this proverbial bandwagon – CRG Gallery. CRG Gallery will soon reopen in 195 Chrystie Street. […]

‘Solivagant’ Carves Out Tiny Gallery Space at 53 Orchard Street

Posted May 19, 2015 at 10:18 am

The de facto Lower East Side gallery district that is Orchard Street has a unique addition to its ranks. (Diminishing returns, anybody?) As of this week, there is now a tiny exhibition window carved out of the Chinese restaurant supply business at 53 Orchard. The approximate dozen-square-foot “window dressing” is the achievement of Solivagant, an […]

Munch Gallery Departs Broome Street After Almost 5 Years

Posted May 4, 2015 at 5:10 am

The overloaded gallery district south of Delancey is down one. Munch Gallery, a narrow showroom that debuted at Broome Street nearly five years ago, is no longer in the game. Owner Lilian Munch decided to close shop in pursuit of “bigger venues” and to “continue the journey” elsewhere. A “new chapter” is allegedly in the […]

The Con Artist Collective Celebrates 5 Years on Ludlow Street

Posted April 24, 2015 at 10:00 am

Con Artist is one of the few businesses on Ludlow Street in Hell Square that still caters to creativity. Something other than nightlife.

Comfort Diner Exhibiting Photography of Ann Sanfedele with ‘Around Here’

Posted April 3, 2015 at 5:14 am

The Comfort Diner on Grand Street needed some flare to spruce up its guts, so why not double as a gallery of sorts. In a nod to the neighborhood, the newcomer eatery tapped the archives of Lower East Side photographer Ann Sanfedele. The result is “Around Here,” a mixed bag of black-and-white and color stills […]
