NEW YORK, NY.-
Lesley Heller Gallery is moving to the dynamic Lower East Side and will become Lesley Heller Workspace.
This new dual-exhibition venue combines a commercial gallery with an independently curated project space. Using this framework, Heller will provide an opportunity to experience the work of established and renowned artists alongside the work of emerging talents. The Workspace seeks to create a vibrant cross-generational dialogue about art and culture among collectors, curators, artists and critics alike a rare undertaking in a commercial gallery setting. Heller will offer her clients a broad range of artistic expression to choose from and will encourage the building of diverse and compelling collections.
Gallery One will hold a solo show by Catherine Howe and gallery two will show The Wells Street Gallery Revisited: Then and Now curated by Jason Andrew. The latter show is a juxtaposition of works from the late 50s and the present by artists associated with Wells Street Gallery, one of Chicagos early vanguard galleries. Artists include: Richard Bogart, John Chamberlain, Ernest Dieringer, Judith Dolnick, Robert Natkin, Aaron Siskind, Ronald Slowinski, Gerald van de Wiele, Donald Vlack.
Both shows open on January 20 and run through February 28, 2010. Lesley Heller Workspace
is located at 54 Orchard Street New York, NY 10002
Lesley Heller Workspace highlights the work of emerging and underrepresented, mid- and late career artists through a program of concurrent solo and curated exhibitions in two separate spaces within the gallery. The gallery acts as a forum for exploring the fundamental ideas, issues and concerns in contemporary art and as a launching point for these artists and their ideas. We seek to create a vibrant cross-generational dialogue about art and culture among collectors, curators, artists and critics--a rare undertaking in a commercial gallery setting. Therefore, we offer our clients a broad range of artistic expression to choose from and will encourage the building of compelling diverse collections. To facilitate the exploration of these ideas and to further engage the art viewing public the gallery hosts public openings, artist talks, poetry readings and other events.
