Beginnings — (est. August 2012) is a series of buildings, materials, exhibitions & events presenting contemporary art in a welcoming environment.
The End is the last night at 110 Meserole Ave, our lovely Greenpoint home for the past year. It's been a great and satisfying run—so we’ve decided to stop. New mental, spiritual and geographic priorities have arisen—the gallery evaporates in waves of heat. Time does a cycle. Time does a flip.
Let's be honest, doing a one-year gallery was never the plan, because there was never a plan. We love and respect longer lasting institutions, but time is tricky and time is weird. Letting go of this location feels right for us, right now. We’ll keep Beginnings — as a thing, continue to produce the video series and probably think up some other projects. It’s impossible to stop. How could you ever stop something called Beginnings —?
The End is a big group show, a nice room of images and forms. Please join us in our small storefront gallery on a hot, humid, sweaty, New York summer evening. As it was in the end, so it shall be in the beginning, or whatever.
Thanks — love & peace.
