DUMBO’s Art Galleries Celebrate New Locations with Grand Reopening

The art season kicks off in DUMBO this weekend with the opening of new spaces for four of the neighbourhood’s galleries: KLOMPCHING GALLERY, Masters Projects, MINUS SPACE, and United Photos Industries. The galleries recently moved to the renovated Stable Building at the corner of Main and Water streets in DUMBO and will open new exhibitions on Saturday, September 12th, 6-9 p.m.

Previously located on 111 Front Street’s second floor, the four galleries moved to new ground-floor locations in the Stable Building in April of this year. Built in 1906 by Turner Construction Company as a stable for Robert Gair’s cardboard box manufacturing complex, the building is the one of the first examples of reinforced concrete construction in New York City. Now, over a century later, Two Trees Management Co. renovated the building to house four white cube gallery spaces with 16-foot ceilings and new storefronts with individual entrances. The renovation took place after Galapagos Art Space left the building to move to Detroit.

“We are so excited to open the new gallery spaces at the Stable Building. These galleries have called DUMBO home for years, and now they have prime locations on the ground-floor, where even more residents and visitors will be able to discover them and the incredible works on view,” said Lisa Kim, Director of Cultural Affairs at Two Trees.

Along the waterfront, A.I.R. Gallery, Porter Contemporary, and Usagi NY also occupy newly renovated gallery spaces along Plymouth Street. All DUMBO galleries will participate in a neighbourhood-wide gallery late night event next month on October 1st for the First Thursday Gallery Walk.

All exhibitions at the galleries are free and open to the public.
