276 Bowery Becomes Arlette Tebele’s Pop-Up Art Gallery

Posted on: August 9th, 2017 at 5:09 am by

When area stores go vacant, the trend is almost always to install a temporary gallery of some sort. Increase the exposure (i.e. eyeballs) on the property to draw attention and hopefully net a new tenant.

And that’s exactly what’s happening over at 276 Bowery.

Sunrise Rainbow Kitchen Supply vacated the large Bowery commercial space earlier this summer after a four-year stint. On the heels of their departure – they moved down the block – the Brooklyn-born pop-artist Arlette Tebele is hosting a temporary gallery in the space.

Her website bio reads: “Just a girl who was born to dream – minus the sleep. I strive to constantly create fun, yet edgy art.”

This address was included in the massive Bowery real estate portfolio (11 buildings) that sold to Joseph Betesh for an astronomical $62 million in summer of 2013.
