Station Independent Projects is on the move after two years holding down a sliver space at 164 Suffolk Street. In twenty-four hours, the gallery is headed south to the fringe of Chinatown. There it will continue its programming with the experience of more than a decade and dozen artists.

The new space is somewhat hidden, and up a flight of stairs. It’s on the second floor landing of 138 Eldridge Street, and will open tomorrow (January 16) with an exhibit called “Frame & Canvas” by William Crump.

Leah Oates and Shane Harrington are the principals in Station Independent Projects. In their own words, the gallery “organizes exhibitions and events with a focus on artist advocacy and specializes in discovering new emerging and mid-career artists that are not represented by galleries and organizes shows to connect artists to broader audiences.”

The new showroom joins the Woodward Gallery just across the street, and further gentrifies this block of predominantly Chinese composition.
