With the summer season a distance memory, life in the "off season" starts to settle in on the East End. The less crowded months are when most of the movement (and changes) in the East End gallery scene start to happen. Here are three major changes gallery goers in the know should be aware of.
Grenning Gallery Moves to Main Street
Grenning Gallery has relocated to 26 Main Street in Sag Harbor, just in time for the holidays. Now located next door to Sara Nightingale Gallery, the Grenning Gallery has Black Swan Antiques as a new cozy neighbor. The pair of businesses share a common entrance and an easy flow between the two while maintaining distinct identities.
Wasting no time in celebrating their new shared space, Grenning Gallery opened its annual "Gems of Grenning Gallery" on December 1, 2018 in its new location. New works by gallery artists Ramiro, Anthony Ackrill, Stephen Bauman, Marc Dalessio, Ben Fenske, Sarah Lamb, Maryann Lucas, Edward Minoff, John Morfis and Nelson White are hung salon style on their freshly painted walls. If you look closely, it's easy to see a wave (of change?) portrayed in the installation of landscape, still life and contemporary realism paintings.
"Gems of Grenning Gallery" remains on view through January 6, 2019.
Grenning Gallery is now located at 26 Main Street, Sag Harbor, NY 11963. www.grenninggallery.com.
Keyes Art Moves to Sag Harbor
Keyes Art is also on the move. The gallery just closed up shop in East Hampton, NY at the Circle, where it opened in May 2018, headed to Miami to catch Miami Art Fair Week and to present "Bert Stern: Wynwood Walls," and is now preparing for its Grand Opening in its new location in Sag Harbor, NY.
Find the gallery in January 2019 in the shop adjacent (and sharing an internal passage) to the American Hotel, diagonally across the street (and about 1/2 block) from its new neighbors Grenning Gallery, Sara Nightingale Gallery and Tulla Booth Gallery with Romany Kramoris Gallery thick in the mix.
Keyes Art holds its first exhibition there on Friday, January 4, 2019, from 6 to 8 p.m. The Opening Celebration doubles as a birthday celebration for gallery artist Nathan Slate Joseph so it's bound to be a special evening.
Keyes Art is now located at 53 Main Street, Sag Harbor, NY 11963. www.juliekeyesart.com.
Quogue Gallery Adds Second Location in New York
Quogue Gallery has been coming into its own since its founding in 2014, the gallery has attracted a devoted base of art collectors. In 2018, Quogue Gallery offered an extended season of curated exhibitions (on view right now is a group show of Quogue-based artists who includes painter Holland Cunningham. Catch it through December 31, 2018.).
In a nod to their growth, the Quogue Gallery opens a New York City space this month For the inaugural exhibition, the gallery picked two strong artists who form a daisy chain across time from abstract expressionism to contemporary abstraction.
Opening on Wednesday, December 12, 2018 with a Reception from 6 to 8 p.m., is "Melinda Zox & Harry Bertschmann." The exhibition remains on view through January 31, 2019.
