Lisa Cooley Gallery Relocating to 107 Norfolk Street

Posted on: January 9th, 2012 at 6:09 am by

Beloved Lower East Side venue Tonic vacated 107 Norfolk Street five years ago this April after a decade in business, but a replacement occupant never arrived to assume control of the stout one-story structure.  You may recall that the space just north of Delancey was briefly considered for dining-in-the-dark eating concept Dans Le Nor in 2010, but those plans quickly fizzled, and the venture chose Tribeca instead.  Otherwise, the storefront has been sitting pretty (empty) since an exterior facelift exactly one year ago.

Over the weekend, though, GalleristNY broke news that a local neighborhood gallery is presently moving to 107 Norfolk, and will reopen there sometime next month.  That’s right, the Lisa Cooley Gallery is relocating from its four-year-old digs at 34 Orchard Street, and in the process, will more than quadruple its footprint to 4,800 square-feet of wiggle room. The new HQ is designed by Ashe + Leandro, and will reportedly boast both a main level exhibition room and a basement showroom for screenings and private presentations.
