Compared to its Orchard Street brethren, Ludlow is noticeably bereft of art galleries. At the top, it’s all bars and boutiques; south of Delancey is more dominated by mom-and-pop commercial businesses. 65 Ludlow, however, is making the switch to showroom.

Dormancy defined this non-descript storefront for years, always jailed behind drawn security gates and a leasing sign. No longer. For a solid month-and-change, contractors gutted the grimy space and delivered an antiseptic new white-box sheen. Spying the literature stapled to the interior yielded the identity of the forthcoming tenant – the William Holman Gallery.

Conceived earlier this year in New York City and Salt Point, the William Holman Gallery specializes in the work of “contemporary American and international artists who share our interests in painting, sculpture, drawing and conceptual work in all media.” The art purveyors also represent the estates of US Army veteran Olin Dows and onetime Harper’s Bazaar editor Carmel Snow.

Inaugural exhibition at 65 Ludlow Street is Nine Artists, which kicks off October 4. According to press materials:

This is a celebration of the work of nine very accomplished artists who will showcase the Galleries first season – Peter Bonner, John R. Cunningham, Michael J. Davis, Nicolette Jelen, Anthony Brownbill, Tom Judd, and Massimo Lippi, Sally Tittmann, and and Robert Seyffert.

This inaugural exhibition will be followed by in-depth exhibitions of each of these talented individuals. The exhibition will include drawings, paintings, sculptures and a conceptual installation.
