Gallery Green on Bowery

Posted on: April 17th, 2009 at 8:22 am by

As it stands, the Bowery is swiftly becoming gallery central. Alas, the influx continues with no end in sight. A press release informs us that, on April 23, Gallery 151 will re-open at 350 Bowery. Entitled “Green Light Go,” the new month-long exhibition will feature artists from the Parsons MFA program.

“Green Light Go” is a response by this group of emerging artists to a pervasive feeling of hopelessness but also to a vision of hope on their part for the future of the arts as well the healing of the environment. Through dynamic use of space and materials in the context of conservation and recycling, this exhibition hopes to inspire people with a belief in the power of the arts to initiate change.

“Green Light Go” will be on view from April 23rd – May 23rd at Gallery 151, 350 Bowery. Hours are Wednesday – Sunday from 1:00pm-6:00pm or by appointment 212.675.5311

The event is sponsored by that new Village Green condo monstrosity at 311 East 11th Street, which is opening a realty office adjacent to the gallery.
