Wallplay Debuts Intelligentsia Coffee Counter as Part of Jonathan Rosen’s “I Want” Gallery Show

Posted April 15, 2014 at 6:04 am

The sandwich board outside the Wallplay showroom on Orchard Street promises an experience that’s “better than Starbucks.” The confused or intrigued should note that the announcement – dropped Sunday morning – is related to the latest endeavor inside the former MOSCOT gallery space. It’s called “(Blank),” a permanent “concept counter” run by coffee entrepreneur Fabrizio […]

Red Royalty Gallery Opening at Long-Dormant 64 Delancey

Posted March 26, 2014 at 9:30 am

Even the rough-and-tumble Delancey Street is not immune to the all-out gallery assault. Showrooms are slowly trickling down onto the main drag. Enter the Red Royalty Gallery at 64 Delancey, situated right beside a Subway sandwich shop. Its signage just went up. This particular store has pretty much been a dead zone for any retail […]

Junior Projects Gallery Space Opening at 139 Norfolk Street Next Week

Last modified February 28, 2014 at 10:45 am

For roughly five years, 139 Norfolk Street was the domain of Grand Opening, an experimental space that housed some truly funky installations. The storefront showroom included interactive pop-up events like ping pong, a wedding chapel, a fashion runway, and even a drive-in movie experience. But it ceased operations last year. Now a new gallery is taking […]

Callicoon Fine Arts Inaugurating New Delancey Street Gallery This Weekend

Posted February 21, 2014 at 6:07 am

This Sunday, Callicoon Fine Arts will inaugurate its new gallery with an installation by Thomas Kovachevich. You read right. After spending almost three years at 124 Forsyth Street, the decision was ultimately made to relocate around the corner to 49 Delancey.

Pablo’s Birthday Opens New Gallery Space at 57 Orchard Street

Posted January 22, 2014 at 6:03 am

Lucas Zallmann’s pop-up “psychic refrigerators” in some ways predicted the future of 57 Orchard Street. The arrival of yet another in the crowded gallery refugee scene of lower Orchard Street. This latest entrant, a familiar face. Pablo’s Birthday, founded in 2002 by artist Arne Zimmermann to showcase up-and-comers, recently traversed neighborhoods to settle in the three-story […]

Legendary Willoughby Sharp Gallery Storefront Rediscovered on Spring Street

Posted January 21, 2014 at 10:24 am

Atop the entrance of the new Sergio Davila Boutique at 8 Spring Street, an old, familiar sign caught our eye (along with, it turns out, the attention of a MoMA curator. But, we’ll get to that part a bit later). The unearthed sign was for the Willoughby Sharp Gallery, which existed from 1988 – 1991. […]

The colorful newcomer, much like its predecessor, focuses on contemporary art. Julie Meneret Contemporary Art opens tomorrow with an exhibit by Moroccan artist Zakaria […]

‘Barbara’ Rolling Gallery Roves Streets of LES

Posted October 28, 2013 at 6:05 am

The sidewalk fixture resembles a dumpster, jet black steel and branded simply as “Barbara.” When we approached yesterday afternoon, outside Pianos, the dangling feet below and conversations within were what most caught our attention. Barbara is a roving gallery on wheels conceived by Guggenheim award winning artist Marvin Gates. This Lower East Side outing is […]

Bureau Gallery Debuts on Norfolk Street

Posted October 7, 2013 at 6:04 am

On its face, a floral shop beside a catering hall seemed a great match. Like peas and carrots, as Forest Gump would say. Nevertheless, Elizabeth Ryan Floral Design vacated 178 Norfolk Street exactly two years ago, and the space remained a rental void. As of yesterday, however, it’s now home to a veteran of the […]
