Weekend Recs : Well Hung
As the cold days of Winter come to a close, artists, gallery owners, collectors and creative people from across the globe begin their annual migration to New York City for the highly anticipated Armory Show. Here at +aRt (540 West 28th Street), at a brand new gallery in Chelsea, we will offer a fresh alternative to the congestion and attitudes by showcasing the diversity between artistic communities. “In an effort to create an exhibition platform for our friends during Armory week, we decided to revisit our past by opening up The Chelsea Chapter at +aRt. The Chelsea Chapter comes on the heels of The Stanton Chapter, an alternative art space we opened in 2008 in Lower East Side. ” – MINT.
