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 […]

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 […]

Bloggers Tom and Lorenzo Celebrate Book Release with Party at Emmett McCarthy/EMc2

Does being a real New Yorker mean never getting starstruck? Sure, we pass paparazzi favorites on the street all of the time, but, well, we’re just not that into them. Our versions of “celebrities” are witty, sharp, offbeat and, most importantly, interesting. This reporter has her own list of favorite local heroes, but they don’t […]

Recap: Con Artist Celebrates 4 Years on Ludlow Street

Posted April 29, 2014 at 10:16 am

When the Con Artist Collective debuted in 2010, its mission was simple yet ambitious. Co-working space for Lower East Side artists at a reasonable price point. The office – a cramped and dank dungeon at 119 Ludlow. Four years later, the creative company is bursting at the seems, with over 250 members and a brand-spankin-new storefront […]

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 […]
