Neighborhood galleries will stay open late tonight for Third Thursdays, a monthly event from the LES Business Improvement District showcasing the Lower East Side’s flourishing arts scene. Galleries will be open until 9pm and the New Museum is offering free evening admission. The Lo-Down has been profiling a participating gallery each month.
We recently stopped in to chat with Alix Sloan, owner of Sloan Fine Art, at her gorgeous gallery space on the corner of Rivington and Norfolk. Sloan’s current exhibition is titled “Kin,” it’s a group show of work from painters Mia Brownell, Nicole Etienne, Clare Grill, Greg Hopkins, Noah Landfield, Jean-Prierr Roy, Jonathan Viner and Jeremy Wagner.
“My program leans painting heavy,” Sloan tells me, towering over me but standing gracefully, surrounded by an intriguing collection of paintings that were presented as part of the New Museum’s recent Festival of Ideas.
