Free Events, Free Things to Do in New York City!  Read More
New York gives you numerous choices when you are in a mood to attend an art gallery exhibition or be a part of an exhibition opening. Some sources say that there are more than a thousand of art galleries in NYC and, of  course, you do not have time to attend them all. But the good thing is that art galleries are usually located in clusters and so if you go to one of them, there is, basically, a 100% chance that you will be able to see art works, be that paintings or photos or scupltures, in many other art galleries located just nearby, whatever neightborhood you happen to be in.

The very first neighborhood where artist lived and art galleries thrived in New York City was Grenwich Village, which boated active art scene as far back as 1850. That active art scene did last: Greenwich Village was the place where Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney opened her Whitney Studio Club Gallery in 1914, which would become the Whitney Museum for American Art (now located in Chelsea).

With immigrants pouring into the city in larger numbers than ever before at the turn of the century, the wealthy families tried to outrun their spread uptown by moving to the Upper East Side. The art galleries followed the buyers and established themselves in the neighboorhood as well.

Midtown, Grenwich Village and the Upper East Side housed most of the New York art galleries for over 100 years. Those three neighborhoods continue to house many of Manhattan art galleries. Upper East Side art galleries are located mostly in the area between Park and Fifth Aves in the mid-70s. Midtown art galleries are clustered near Fifth Avenue. Many of them are on the 57th St. They usually represent big name artists.

Early in the 1960s artists started moving into the neglected commercial lofts of the cast-iron district south of Houston Street, known as SoHo. In the 1970s and ’80s SoHo was the City’s best-known art distric. But SoHo art galleries became the victims of the neighborhood's success which they themselves have created. Before the artists moved into SoHo, the neightborhood was an array of empty factories buildings and abandoned warehouses. Artists moved in as the premises had lots of light and space, and were dirt cheap. As the artists were right there, the art galleries sprang up. The neighboorhood attarcted crowds and so retailers decided to capitalize on the cool images that SoHo have attained. They flooded the area and it made the rents go skyhigh and made the area unaffordable to the artist community. This story repeats itself in many towns and cities all over the world, and so instead of dwelling on it, let us tell you which other neighborhoods have the galleries that you may want to atend. SoHo has become more of a shopping mall than a place to see intereating art work, although about 20 galleries are still located there. 

The first place that comes to mind when one talks about the artists' and galleries' flight from SoHo is, of course, Chelsea. That's where many of SoHo galleries had to run to when the skyrocketed rent forced them to leave SoHo in the 90s. Chelsea art galleries are located between 18th and 28th Streets going South/North and between 10th and 11th Avenues going East/West. If you start there you may end staying there, as Chelsea's list of galleries has about 200 names or so.

Another gallery district is the Lower East Side, which is located east of Bowery and between Houston and Grand Streets. The galleries here usually show up and coming artists. You can see there lots of local grown art. The neighborhood is filled with inviting bars, cafes and restaurants, and with small smart clothing shops. So you can combine gallery hoping with bar hoping and with shopping for something off the beaten track.

39 Exhibition Openings at New York Art Galleries (NYC)

There are over a thousand art galleries in New York, most of which are located in six Manhattan neighborhoods: Chelsea, SoHo, Midtown, Upper East Side, Greenwich Village, and East Village. It is almost impossible to list all the exhibition openings that take place in NYC art galleries. Here is a good sampling to start with.

Opening Reception | Partial Eclipse: Collage, Chance, and Humor


Partial Eclipse is the product of a yearlong dialogue between Anton Ginzburg and Dasha Shishkin. Informed by Exquisite Corpse - the surrealist game merging disparate ideas and images to form unexpected wholes - the artist employ collage, chance, and humor to reveal unanticipated relationships between their artworks. Though using seemingly different formal vocabularies, the artists share many themes and interests, with an eye on traditions of Russian Futurists and avant-guard artists, writers, and musicians, including collectives of the 1920s and 1930s, such as the multidisciplinary OPOYAZ and OBERIU.

Opening Reception | Sergei Volokhov: Theory of Reflection


This exhibition features selected drawings from the 1980s by prominent Russian artist Sergei Volokhov. These imaginative drawings on specially prepared paper are contemplations by the artist on Russian history and his personal memories. Sergei Volokhov was born 1937 in Moscow and currently lives and works in Brussels. He graduated from the Graphic Arts department of the Pedagogical Institute in Moscow. In 1969, Volokhov had his first solo exhibition at Café Blue Bird in Moscow, where a number of Russian nonconformist artists, including Komar and Melamid, Ilya Kabakov, Oleg Vassiliev, Erik Bulatov, and Pyotr Belenok also had their first semi-official shows.

Opening Reception | Pressed: Images from the Jewish Daily Forward:


For more than 120 years, the Forward has given an eager American Jewish audience a unique mix of news, culture and opinion. Published on the Lower East Side beginning in 1897, this Yiddish-language newspaper had a circulation of more than 275,000 in its heyday. Now a digital-only publication appearing in both English and Yiddish, the Forward maintains a vast archive tracing the history of the printed publication and the stories it covered. Pressed dives into this archive, presenting a selection of metal plates used to print images in the paper, along with contemporary prints made, using the historic plates, with traditional equipment at Bowne & Co., Stationers. For some, the pages of the Forward on which the images once appeared will be displayed alongside these images. Together these pictures of strikes and activists, Yiddish theater stars and baseball players, daily life and historic moments, present the history of this singular publication, its audience and Jewish life in America and around the world.

Opening Reception | i will not be just a tourist in the world of images just watching images passing by which i cannot live in make love to possess as permanent sources of joy and ecstacy: Group Show


Sharing a poetic approach in embodying experiences moving between the physical world and that of the mind, five artists have created works in media ranging from painting and photography to video and installation. Under the title taken from Anais Nin's diary, works navigate through multiple realms with different modes and densities of time, questioning and investigating borders between what is perceived as internal and external; and how these may fold and ripple into each other.

Over the course of her two-decades-long practice, Gangloff has become closely identified with her bold-colored, graphic portraits of friends, family members, and the occasional stranger. Her eighth solo exhibition at the gallery marks the artist’s first concentrated presentation of landscape painting. Begun during her eight-week residency at the MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire, earlier this year, the show will provide audiences with the opportunity to experience, in depth, yet another aspect of Gangloff’s practice.

Opening Reception | Irony, Madness, War: Stark, Visceral Images


17 paintings in a group of 30 are devoted to the ironic, the manic abuse of high authority - the madness of war. They are not elegant landscapes, comforting still lifes, or ambiguous abstractions that can never speak as do these starkly realistic and visceral images that provoke and maybe even inspire. This solo exhibition is the work of legendary art director, Amil Gargano, who began the serious study of art at the age of 9 and continued through his post graduate education at the preeminent Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. That study began directly after his return from the Korean War, which became the catalyst for this exhibition.

An exhibition dedicated to celebrating Michael Wolf’s life and prolific photographic legacy. Over his 40+ year career, Wolf intimately explored architecture and urban life from Paris to Hong Kong. He examined not only building facades as art objects themselves, but also the lives within these buildings. Bodies of work such as Architecture of Density, Transparent City, Tokyo Compression, and Paris Rooftops are all explorations of the realities of 21st century metropolitan life and the constant etching away of privacy.

The site-specific installation on the ground floor is made up of lines and connection points of circuit boards and resembles a complex subway map of a futuristic city.

Opening Reception | Alina Szapocznikow: Playful, Uncanny Sculpture


The visceral, playful, and uncanny aspects of the human bodily experience lay at the center of Alina Szapocznikow’s oeuvre. Born in Poland to a Jewish family in 1926, the artist survived internment in concentration camps as a teenager during the Holocaust. After the war, Szapocznikow trained as a sculptor in both Prague and Paris, returning to Poland in 1951. By the 1960s she was radically employing sculpture to render an intimate record of both her memories and her own body in the present. Pioneering in its use of new and unconventional materials (from tinted polyester resin and polyeurethane foam, to everyday items such as pantyhose, newspaper clippings, and grass), Szapocznikow’s art amounts to a powerful meditation on what she once described as ‘a fleeting instant, a trivial instant... our terrestrial passage.’

Opening Reception | Envisioning the Liquid Land: Forceful Artworks with a Sculptural Edge


Nicole Awai is a multimedia artist best known for her work that incorporates non-traditional materials—including nail polish, black resin, and found objects—to create forceful artworks with a sculptural edge that explore elements of the ‘American experience’. Her practice investigates the interaction between that which comprises the entirety of the Americas, and its relational influence on the United States. “The history of the Americas is about malleability; the shaping and reshaping of resources and culture. It is an evolving, and revolving phenomena of transformation through the movement of bodies and materials,” Awai states.

An exhibition of new work by Andro Wekua. Known for the multidisciplinary nature of his practice, Wekua has created a series of paintings and sculptures that continue his career-long exploration of the liminal space between objectivity and subjective interpretation. In works that are redolent with the artifacts of an ambiguous and undefined history, Wekua presents a series of tableaux that reveal themselves to us as emotionally familiar in spite of the artist's gestures of obfuscation and his conscious disavowal of the formal tropes of narrative.

Opening Reception | At 1000 Feet: Photographs from the Sky


A photographic exhibition by Dinesh Boaz. As a photographer, Boaz defies a traditional approach to perspective and instead situates himself quite literally in the sky above. The resulting work is breathtaking and arresting. Each image captured by Boaz offers his audiences a rare composition of both nature and civilization in all their complexity. Originally a recording studio owner and music producer in New York City, Boaz became an avid aerial photographer almost entirely by accident after he won a “doors off” helicopter ride over Manhattan that opened his eyes to a new realm of experience.

A solo presentation of new works by South Korean artist Lee Bul. This exhibition will feature recent mixed media paintings from the artist’s Perdu series that blend biomorphic and cybertronic forms, vividly yet delicately rendered in acrylic paint and mother of pearl. Among the most radical and internationally regarded figures in contemporary Korean art, this is Lee Bul’s first U.S. exhibition since two of her sculptures were featured in the 58th Venice Biennale. This marked Lee Bul’s second presentation in the Biennale; the artist was invited to return after representing her country in South Korea’s pavilion and receiving an honorable mention in 1999.

Hernan Bas’ fifth solo exhibition with the gallery will include seven large-scale paintings and one decorative room screen that feature a series of strange and seemingly obscure (or possibly forgotten) moments that have influenced American culture. This body of work illustrates Bas’ innate ability to highlight cult phenomena from the past that offer insight into the political and social concerns of today. Rather than focusing on a singular subject matter, as Bas has done previously, this series spans time periods and themes, providing a unique perspective on American subculture and a contemporary version of History Painting, which traditionally depicts a particular moment within a narrative.

Afro Syncretic presents the work of nine artists foregrounding the African roots of the Latinx diaspora. Collectively, the works center the vibrancy of diasporic blackness within Latinx culture urging viewers to confront dominant narratives of what it means to be Latinx. These artists are part of a contemporary reassessment of African influences in Latinx communities that rejects trends to separate and undermine blackness. They provide pathways to appreciate the richness of contemporary Afro-syncretic interventions, breaking through dominant views of history and inspiring alternative futures. Artists are: Lucia Hierro, Tiffany Alfonseca, Joiri Minaya, Carlos Martiel, Fabiola Jean-Louis, Patricia Encarnación, David Antonio Cruz, Melissa Misla, and Elia Alba.

An exhibition of works by the artist Petra Senn. 30 years have passed since the fall of the Berlin Wall. What has remained? What images, what emotions come to mind? Did we learn from it? And if so, what? Aside from the general media spectacle and flood of images that were born of this event, the individual memories have diminished and possibly faded. 30 years later, Senn reflects on the historic event and reappraises it artistically and conceptually.

Opening Reception | Mike Kelley: A Singular Approach to Painting


Over the course of his influential four-decade career, Mike Kelley generated a remarkably diverse oeuvre in an array of media, conflating high and low culture, critiquing prevailing aesthetic conventions, and colliding the sacred with the profane. This exhibition is the first in New York to focus on Kelley’s singular approach to painting as a conceptual medium. Featuring paintings from series that span a 15 year period, 1994 through 2009, the exhibition traces Kelley’s engagement with the medium through bodies of work including The Thirteen Seasons (Heavy on the Winter), a series of oval-shaped paintings on wood; Timeless Painting, which signified Kelley’s distinct return to painting in color.

She has exhibited at New York’s Georges Bergès Gallery and the Brooklyn Museum, and at other prestigious venues on four continents. As an abstract painter, her art combines the influences of a person who still feels a strong affinity for her native culture, while integrating her life experience outside of Japan in her work.

American Truth is a multi-centric survey of contemporary America through the lens-based work of a group of 20 artists. Exhibiting artists present objects and images that reflect a multitude of American experiences. With a focus on the moments that are often missed, ignored, polemicized, made invisible, or even erased by the mainstream media, this exhibition explores our collective understanding of others and ourselves as people living in America.

Opening Reception | Keith Sonnier: Rarely Seen Seminal Work


An exhibition of rarely seen seminal work by Keith Sonnier. Large scale works from the ongoing series Ba-O-Ba, which the artist began in 1968, utilize large panes of glass and Sonnier's signature neon tubing in a geometric composition that forms a confluence between the sculpture and the gallery wall and floor. Based on the Greek mathematical theory of the Golden Ratio, the series takes its title from the Haitian French dialect in Sonnier's native Louisiana for 'bath of color' or 'light bath.' They are quintessential examples of Sonnier's ability to masterfully synthesize architecture and light, speaking to a formal inventiveness that has defined nearly six decades of work.
