Woodward Gallery News: New Exhibitions, Cafe Plan Still on Track

MOODY Products (Titles from L-R: Moody Cola, America Runs of Graff, Absolute Graff, AA Games) October-December 2011

There’s a new work on the facade of 132 Eldridge Street, the Woodward Gallery’s rotating street art exhibition space.  Moody presents “Products,”  an extension of the artist’s exploration of our “visual culture.”  You can read more about the project here.

There’s more news from the Woodward Gallery. On November 5th, Lady Pink. “the first woman of graffiti,” will open a major exhibition inside the main gallery space. The artist, who began painting subway trains in 1979, is now featured in the permanent collections of the Whitney Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and  the Brooklyn Museum. Lady Pink will be present for the opening reception.

One other note. Kristine and John Woodward told us recently they are moving forward with plans to open up a cafe inside 132 Eldridge. Another Eldridge Street spot, Panade, was operating out of the space briefly, but a partnership with the gallery fizzled. Last month, Community Board 3 decided not to support the gallery’s liquor license application.  But they are undeterred. We’ll keep you posted.
