There’s a Britney Spears Mural in this Orchard Street Gallery for the MTV VMAs

Posted August 19, 2016 at 5:09 am

MTV is marking territory all over the Lower East Side. Indeed, just a few weeks after painting murals at First Street Green as category visuals for the upcoming Video Music Awards, the network also rented out an Orchard Street gallery in the name of the event. That would be the Van der Plas Gallery, which abruptly ended its […]

Orchard Street Gallery District Loses 3 from its Ranks

Posted August 1, 2016 at 5:10 am

The spine of the Lower East Side gallery district – Orchard Street South of Delancey – is down three galleries as of this month. Bosi Contemporary, Sasha Wolf, and Tracy Williams are all finished. Bosi Contemporary vacated its 2,000 square-foot retail space in June after five years at 48 Orchard Street. The requisite leasing signage currently […]

The Denny Gallery Opens Summertime Pop-up at Rehabbed 150 East Broadway

Posted July 15, 2016 at 9:19 am

The green is gone. And with it, tendencies to upscale a Chinatown property. You’ll recall that Michael Edelman and Parag Sawhney of real estate investment firm Penn South Capital purchased 150 East Broadway back in February for $4.45 million. They wasted no time overwriting the green facade with a darker hue, and installing its first retail […]

Behind an Eldridge Street Gate is this “Peek Hole” Gallery

Posted June 17, 2016 at 5:18 am

Chinatown has a unique gallery on its hands. Rather than some glass-faced store with white walls and little art, this two-month-old showroom resides behind shuttered security gates at 113b Eldridge Street. Take a peek through the holes in the grate to view the exhibit, which is an elaborate display of candles. A shrine of sorts, […]

Three Years on, the Garis & Hahn Gallery on the Bowery Folds

Posted June 15, 2016 at 5:17 am

When new condos open up – this could be anywhere – the typical tenant is oftentimes a gallery of some kind. Usually with two surnames separated by an ampersand. And with limited shelf life. Like Garis & Hahn at 263 Bowery. The 2,422 square-foot gallery debuted in the first half of 2013, joining Takamichi Hair […]

Derek Eller Gallery Debuts in Former Broome Street Garage

Posted May 18, 2016 at 5:15 am

The garage to gallery metamorphosis at 300 Broome Street is complete (for the most part). Where tune-ups and flats were fixed, a bland white-box showroom now entertains the wealthy. As expected, the nineteen-year-old Derek Eller Gallery jumped cross-town from Chelsea to open at this old Chinese auto mechanic. Its inaugural exhibition in the new space […]

London-Based ‘Hales Gallery’ Opens Outpost on Delancey Street

Posted March 22, 2016 at 5:12 am

Barely two years after its inauguration, the Red Royalty Gallery just faded from the Lower East Side landscape. Its former showroom at 64 Delancey Street, however, didn’t sit dormant long. Almost immediately after the departure, a likeminded business planted a flag. Quite literally – see the sign? This is now the home of Hales Gallery, […]

Chelsea’s Derek Eller Gallery Breaks Ground at Former Broome Street Auto Repair Shop

Posted March 15, 2016 at 5:10 am

The former Chinese auto mechanic at 300 Broome Street shuttered last October for a much richer clientele. Five months later, the prophecy has come to pass. Chelsea’s Derek Eller Gallery is finally making inroads at its new Lower East Side location. The nineteen-year-old showroom broke ground at 300 Broome Street within the last couple days. […]
