55 Delancey Street

An iconic handball mural from one of the local greats is again on display. Strolling down Delancey Street this past week, you may have noticed the fifteen-foot replica of Lee Quinones‘ “Lion’s Den” mural. It’s fastened to the facade of the James Fuentes Gallery as part of his one-man show there. The “Lion’s Den” dates […]

After Brennan & Griffin Gallery relocated to Norfolk Street last year, its former headquarters on Delancey Street remained vacant. The only action during its year-long dormancy was when Petee’s Pie used the space for its busy Thanksgiving rush last November. But now, more of the same is on the way. An art gallery from midtown […]

James Fuentes is busted. The dark faux-brick exterior of his eponymous gallery on Delancey Street now sports some interesting 3D definition. Sculptures by the hand of artist John Ahearn. In anticipation of Ahearn’s appearance in the upcoming group show at 55 Delancey, a unique series of seven different busts (aka “life casts”) presently protrudes from […]

Some musical chairs on the local gallery front. Back in February, the Laurel Gitlen Gallery terminated its tenure on the Lower East Side. The eponymous owner had operated the showroom at different locations during the seven-year run. The latest being 122 Norfolk Street. So, after just over a month of vacancy, the storefront scored a […]

Delancey Street is an unlikely place for galleries. It’s loud, polluted, and known more for utilitarian business. Tell that to James Fuentes. His eponymous gallery just doubled in size shortly before the new year. Its re-inauguration transpired back in November when the sidewalk shed was carted away. Sheathed in ten-plus feet of faux-brick, the new […]

The James Fuentes Gallery moved to 55 Delancey Street in the fall of 2010. It arrived an immigrant on the Lower East Side from the shores of St. James Place. Operating a subtle showroom the last four years, time has come for an expansion. It appears they’ve just annexed the adjancent space, previously home to […]

Indoor-Outdoor Flooring Supplies wasn’t long for the Lower East Side.

As if we needed further affirmation of the gallery district that has become the Lower East Side, W magazine has a sprawling writeup on the whole scene, bringing it mainstream. The prose is more a proclamation that Chelsea now has a run for its money.

In due course, the mostly-dormant 55-D Delancey will carry the distinction of being the only gallery on Delancey. A pioneer. Since Creative Sign, Inc. relocated down the block last October, the storefront space has remained largely dormant. Well, aside from the brief designer pop-up C’est Beau back in July. Now artist James Fuentes is on […]

In October 2009, Creative Sign, Inc. moved just two doors down from 55-D Delancey into the gut-renovated cornershop of 55 Delancey. After the dozen-yard re-location, 55-D gained a highly conspicuous “for rent” banner, yet remained dormant until now. Hello, pop-up!
