When VolaVida gallery folded at the end of September after three months in business, one of its principals splintered off to create something similar. Gallerists Laura Reich and Marc Leader held onto the space at 240 East 4th Street, and rechristened it 212 Arts. Its inauguration is tonight, with new artwork by John “Crash” Matos, Dain, Adam DARE, Al Diaz, T-Kid 170, Damon Johnson, Flood, Hektad, Nicholai Khan, and Zimer.
Here’s more from a recent press release.
212 Arts is a New York City based gallery and artist management agency specializing in urban art and street culture. 212 Arts functions under a very simple mission statement; we strive to bring prolific urban art to the masses. Although our artists work in different mediums and styles the bottom line is we at the gallery feel it is art worth owning, and we would never show a piece we ourselves would not be proud to display in our homes.
As for VolaVida, according to its Facebook page, they’re scouting a new space on the Lower East Side for November.
Here is a sampling of artwork from the first show…
