Andrew Edlin Moving from Chelsea Gallery Space to the Bowery

The small colony of restaurant supply businesses on the Bowery is down another.

The Soho Sammy supply company at 212 Bowery, which just consolidated its footprint earlier this year, is not long for the world. Its three-decade tenure comes at the expense of the Chelsea art scene.

Longtime dealer and fair organizer Andrew Edlin ditched his thirteen-year headquarters on Tenth Avenue to relocate to the Lower East Side. He recently signed a lease on the space, and officially joins the glut of galleries headquartered in the Bowery midsection (New Museum, Sperone Westwater, Salon 94, and so on).

The change in scenery is an upgrade for Edlin, expanding exhibition space from 1,700 square-feet to roughly 2,500. A single summer show will close out the Chelsea premises, with construction set to begin inside 212 Bowery thereafter. Edlin hopes to open sometime in “early fall.”

Andrew Edlin specializes in exhibiting “outsider artists” such as Henry Darger and Marcel Storr.
