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 […]

SoHo’s Westwood Gallery Flocks to 262 Bowery

Posted May 3, 2016 at 5:10 am

The Bowery just added another gallery to its growing ranks. Bolstered by the presence of several showrooms and the International Center of Photography, the area is ripe for the picking. Next in line is SoHo’s Westwood Gallery. The twenty-one-year-old Westwood Gallery is poised to move into 262 Bowery. Build-out has been underway for a few […]

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. […]

Wall Street ‘Corner’ Building to be Transformed into Dynamic Art Installation

Last modified March 3, 2016 at 9:49 am

The former JP Morgan-owned building at 23 Wall Street is getting a major makeover come springtime. Although the city landmark nicknamed “The Corner” is nestled prominently on the southeast corner of Broad Street, it has remained abandoned for the last several years. Somewhat astonishingly. But the space is in the midst of a dynamic transformation thanks […]

The Bowery Notches Another Gallery with SoHo’s ‘Pop Gallery’

Posted February 29, 2016 at 10:44 am

Down at 195 Bowery, the Manhattan Stone Industry showroom is through. The tile supplier entered the scene in 2011, but will soon vanish from the streetscape. After four months of tombstone signage, landlord Thor Equities found its match. With the CitizenM Hotel bun in the oven, as it were, and gentrification all around, it seems […]

Sole Stalwart Sherman Shoes is Closing Shop to Make Way for Gallery

Posted February 29, 2016 at 5:00 am

​This Division Street sole stalwart is on its way out. Sherman Shoes, in business (at the same address) for nearly a century, is closing its doors in the coming days. And the store inventory is already cleared out; shelving is bare. The bad news has been quite a while in the making, apparently. Indeed, we had […]

Laurel Gitlen Gallery Calls it Quits After 7 Years on the Lower East Side

Posted February 26, 2016 at 10:13 am

After seven years of operations on the Lower East Side, the Laurel Gitlen Gallery is out of commission. The eponymous owner announced as much in an email blast to friends on Monday. Gitlin began as showroom/project space on the left coast in Portland, and eventually relocated to 261 Broome Street in 2009. Four years later, […]

Warholian Lineage Project Explores His Legacy at Henry Street Gallery [RECAP]

Posted February 23, 2016 at 10:23 am

It often feels like nothing exciting or creative can survive on the Lower East Side anymore and much of our history is being wiped out. Does anything feel adventurous and a little raw? (How many speakeasies and pop-up shops does a gal need, ya know?) So we tend to stop and take notice, encouraged when […]

Celebrating the Launch of ‘Custom Melodies’ Website at Chinatown Soup on Orchard Street

Last modified February 9, 2016 at 2:00 pm

You may have heard of artist Grey Gersten and his “Custom Melodies” exhibit  – a successful interactive exercise in writing anonymous biographical songs by New Yorkers, which showcased at the Mmuseumm last year.  Well, now he’s taking those songs digitally, giving the tracks a more accessible and permanent home on the internet, at www.custommelodies.com. We caught up with the man behind […]
