Paddle8 partner gallery Lisa Cooley will open up their new space at 107 Norfolk Street, one block east of Essex between Delancey and Rivington with a group show opening on March 16 and running through March 25th. 107 Norfolk, designed by Ashe + Leandro previously hosted venerable avant-garde music venue Tonic. The 4,800 square-foot gallery, which features dual exhibition spaces and fourteen foot wood-beamed ceilings, will host a series of major works by each gallery artist for its inaugural exhibition. Titled after the Frank O’Hara poem, Today, the show functions as a celebration of expansion and new beginnings for one of the LES’ premier programs.
Cooley herself commented “I am thrilled that we are able to stay in the Lower East Side, and even happier that my friend, Kerry Schuss, will be taking over our wonderful Orchard Street space. The Lower East Side is the gallery neighborhood of our generation, without a doubt. I am thrilled to cement our position here, to give our artists a chance to grow and thrive with the resources and the space they need. Also, I look forward to watching as my talented colleagues also grow and expand and build our neighborhood into an even stronger part of the New York art community.”
This brief but promising exhibition will include work by Michael Bauer, Alice Channer, Andy Coolquitt, Cynthia Daignault, Josh Faught, Frank Haines, Alex Olson, Jon Pestoni, Alan Reid, Erin Shirreff, and J. Parker Valentine.
Today runs from March 16-25 at Lisa Cooley (107 Norfolk Street).
