James Fuentes Gallery Moving to 55 Delancey

Posted September 2, 2010 at 6:12 am

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.
