Posted November 13, 2014 at 10:09 am

The prominent artist became the prorprietor of the former Zito Studio Gallery at 122 Ludlow, which closed in 2006 (it’s now Cocoro salon). He’s still active on the local streets, periodically commissioned to paint a gate mural, most recently for Gallery Bar […]

‘Butcher Block’ Plans Scrapped, Castor Gallery to Open at 254 Broome Street

Posted November 7, 2014 at 6:03 am

Looks like those plans for the Butcher Block on Broome are out to pasture. Last month, Community Board 3 had approved its standard beer-wine stipulations for the new bistro concept at 254 Broome. Workers, meanwhile, already began the process of cleaning the store, what we believed was prep for the restaurant. The window leafing proves […]

Explore the Artistic Side of ‘Madness’ at The Lodge Gallery Tomorrow

Posted October 28, 2014 at 9:30 am

How does one define madness? Is it chemical or environmental (or a bit of both)? Is a little madness necessarily a bad thing? And, as an artist, how does one interpret the theme of madness and its place in contemporary culture? The Lodge Gallery currently investigates some of these questions in its soon-to-end “Madness” exhibit. […]

James Fuentes Gallery is Expanding Its Showroom on Delancey

Last modified July 23, 2014 at 10:01 am

The James Fuentes Gallery moved to 55 Delancey Street in the fall of 2010. It arrived an immigrant on the Lower East Side from the shores of St. James Place. Operating a subtle showroom the last four years, time has come for an expansion. It appears they’ve just annexed the adjancent space, previously home to […]

Neighbors Irked by Penis in the Window of 52 Kenmare [NSFW]

Last modified July 23, 2014 at 9:42 am

The Rivington Design House – no longer on its namesake street – is making waves. Their new headquarters at 52 Kenmare Street currently boasts a poster of a naked man in the window. Flaccid penis and all. The public nudity display is actually part of Bek Andersen’s gallery installation at the Rivington Design House called […]

Satanic VECTOR Gallery Relocates to 154 East Broadway

Posted July 14, 2014 at 6:06 am

Clinton Street is no longer the center of the occult, home of the devil. Satanic sachem JJ Brine has taken his rather photogenic VECTOR Gallery to another circle of hell. That of East Broadway in Chinatown. Squeezed from its former perch, VECTOR now has a new home at 154 East Broadway, where it will continue […]

The Stephan Stoyanov Gallery on Orchard Street Has Shuttered

Posted June 30, 2014 at 6:05 am

The gallery district that is lower Orchard Street just lost a popular showroom. Stephan Stoyanov Gallery closed its headquarters at 29 Orchard just a couple weeks ago without much warning. We are told the eponymous owner had been struggling of late. Meanwhile, the security gates are shuttered and a leasing sign tops the storefront. Stoyanov […]

AMO Studios Opens ‘Creative Venue’ at 106 Eldridge Street

Posted May 7, 2014 at 6:03 am

Another Bushwick business is seeking refuge on the Lower East Side. AMO Studios opened their new storefront showroom a couple months ago at 106 Eldridge Street, applying additional pressure of gentrification on a predominantly Chinese-oriented block. The space is so subtle it’s quite easy to miss … if not for that huge red-neon ring placed […]

Posted May 6, 2014 at 6:08 am

Over at 20 Clinton Street, the former “LOHO Beauty Supply” combination just changed its tune from hair to art. The two-store footprint is now home to another Chelsea-based gallery. It’s an annex of the Marianne Boesky Gallery. Far from her flagship locale, “Boesky East,” as it’s known, debuted this past Sunday, just in time for […]
