The art gallery revolving door continues to spin on the Lower East Side. Spoke Art of San Francisco has taken a space at 210 Rivington St., a building just to the west of Pitt Street.
According to its website, Spoke art specializes “in new contemporary painting, sculpture and illustration with an emphasis in accessible programming.” This past summer, the gallery ventured east for a Wes Anderson-themed group show in Chelsea. The pop-up event caught fire on social media and was sold out.
The first LES show opens tomorrow night from 6-9 with “Bob’s Burgers,” described on Facebook as, “an officially licensed art show tribute to the animated television series.” Be forewarned: 2500 people already say they’re attending.
The Rivington Street space was previously occupied by Kansas Gallery, which announced its closure recently after just one year on the Lower East Side.
The Spoke Art deal was brokered by Ryan Reszelbach of Constellation Real Estate Advisors. The asking price for the 900 square foot space was $7,000/month.
