‘Lazy Susan’ Gallery Hangs it up After 4 Years on Henry Street

Posted on: December 30th, 2019 at 5:03 am by

The Lazy Susan Gallery is calling it quits. No more art at 191 Henry Street after showcasing unique exhibits for the last four years.

Turkish illustrator Gizum Vural closed down the joint with the final installation, “Talking Lines,” which included her colored pencil pieces. Today, the gallery is hosting a fire sale of artist supplies, and lighting and infrastructure items, in addition to dead stock of zines and items from the gallery over the years. Most of it for one to five dollars or so.

Lazy Susan opened at 191 Henry Street in December 2015. It took over from the Rebecca Jampol Projects annex.

Yet, all is not lost. Word on the street is that gallery owner Brian Shevlin, whose roots go deeper with the years-running Con Artist Collective, is currently scouting area locations for a replacement space.
