Galleries Host Successful Inaugural Lower East Side Art Week

Oct 22 2018

Foot traffic was way up this past weekend as twenty-four local galleries hosted the first Lower East Side Art Week. The event invited visitors to familiarize themselves with the neighborhood, the galleries, and their artists to celebrate the unique richness of the Lower East Side’s art scene, as both a hub of fine art and non-conformism.

Conceived by Lesley Heller of Lesley Heller Gallery and Bart Keijsers Koning of LMAK Gallery, the event set itself apart from regular programming by asking galleries to present exhibitions focused on female, established and emerging artists.

Lower East Side Art Week was covered in major art press outlets, such as the New York Times, ArtForum, Art I-D,  and more.
