Inaugural Lower East Side (L.E.S) Art Week 2018: Over 20 galleries will present female artists
This year, each gallery was asked to present either a solo or group show of established or emerging female artists.

NEW YORK, NY.- In October 2018, a list of prominent galleries on the Lower East Side will band together to host their inaugural Art Week. The twenty or so participating galleries are within walking distance from one another, allowing visitors to familiarize themselves with the neighborhood. A primary goal of the event is to begin to introduce each gallery’s unique artistic vision to new audiences. Throughout the week dedicated events will be held at the galleries, such as artist talks, gallery walk-throughs, performances, poetry readings, panel discussions, and more, all geared to help attendees become acquainted with the host gallery as well as get a better understanding of each gallery’s voice and the artists they represent.

“Motivated by our passion and desire to share our gallery platform, we were looking to widen our audience and show off the Lower East Side as a cultural beacon. We’ve decided to come together as a group of galleries to create LES Art Week, October 17-21. To make the week special, rather than just another week at our galleries, we decided to have a theme for the event. This year each gallery will mount an exhibit of a female artists or group of female artists within their space.” Lesley Heller of Lesley Heller Gallery and Bart Keijsers Koning of LMAKgallery

L.E.S Art Week has partnered with the game changing audio-guide developers, The Two Percent to offer an hour-long tour of participating galleries and their shows. This app will be available for purchase ($15) at and MP3 players available at Lesley Heller Gallery.
