Dino Eli Reopens Windows Gallery in Basement of 37 Orchard

Windows Gallery is back on the block.
The popular showroom shuttered last April after three years in business at 37 Orchard Street. Leasing signs are still in place. However, owner Dino Eli tells us that Windows is now making its illustrious return. At the same address, no less. The inaugural exhibit in the new basement space – where there are no windows – is entitled “EleMENTAL,” and features the work of gallery-represented talent (e.g. Michael Mars Wilson, Jessica Speckhard, Max Noy, et al). As before, the industry newcomer is championing “deserving emerging artists.”
The basement itself was previously home to the offbeat Ale et Ange boutique, which later moved to 40 Rivington Street in 2010 (has since closed). Dino Eli wisely began renting the flower-flapped cellar a year ago as a backup since “I knew rents were going up.” After the temporary artist subletters departed, he took over.
