Art Tour, LES/Soho from East to West
The stretch East to West from the Bowery to the West Side highway is an art lovers dream, especially someone who loves to discover new things. At 243 Bowery find Salon 94 a gallery known for its gutsy program and cutting edge style. Up to Bowery and Broome Street a stretch of notable galleries: Nicelle Beauchene, Jack Hanley, CANADA and Marlborough Gallery are all side-by-side on this creative block. Each gallery more daring than the next. There's sure to be something that catches your eye. As you head west down Broome to Broadway make a right and find Clifton Benvenuto at 515 Broadway. This super avant-garde gallery is full of surprises and satisfying artwork. Head back to Broome and walk to Wooster to find the inimitable Team Gallery at #47. Artists Suzanne McClelland and Ryan McGinley are among my favorites who show here. Keep on heading West to Van Dam Street, about a 7 minute walk, to Kate Werble Gallery. Kate is a young, ambitious dealer with a great eye and a penchant for conceptual art. She recently expanded her space, so her exhibitions will be even more ambitious. Just north up on Greenwich Street you will find Gavin Brown's Enterprise, known for its ahead of the curve exhibitions and cult followings. Next door at 630 Greenwich is Maccarone. Opened in 2001 by the fearless Michelle Maccarone who comfortably exhibits contemporary and historic work.
