Gallery Project in Transition

"We're changing, not closing."

"A little piece of New York," is how Lois Kane described the Gallery Project when she passed along the news that it had closed its Fourth Avenue location. (Kane has sharp eyes for openings and closings--she wrote this column from 1987 to 1997.) Kane regretted the apparent loss of the sometimes very strangely themed exhibits at Gallery Project with titles like "Post Apocalypse" and "Quantified Self."

"We're changing, not closing," writes Gloria Pritschet, co-founder with Rocco DePietro of the nonprofit gallery. "Gallery Project is a gallery of ideas, not a location. After eight years, we felt we were finished with the 215 South Fourth site," which has hosted, she says, seventy exhibits and more than 1,700 artists.

"We're currently developing an exhibit, Drones, and have begun artist selection. We are looking ... for an optimal site. We'll post updates on the website (thegalleryproject.com)."    (end of article)
