GALLERY HOPPING IN THE LOWER WEST SIDE

Dotted throughout a few streets in the Lower West Side are hundreds of independent galleries, each with their own concepts and stories to tell. During my October trip to New York, we spent a seemingly fleeting hour hopping from one to another, posing in front of the various exhibits and dancing through the studios. 

Each gallery had something rare and invaluable in New York City - space. Gaping white studios meant the art was the sole focus of your attention, not an easy task in a city known for its compact and loud industrial landscape.

The beauty of these galleries is that they are ever-changing. With new exhibitions every few weeks, there's a constant stream of inspiration. I'm reserving a long afternoon for this on my next trip, and highly recommend you do the same.

  3. I love how some of the galleries have industrial feel in them, it kind of makes the artworks all the more surreal.

    Visiting art galleries is really a great way to unwind. There is something calming at analyzing each brush stroke.

  11. I love visiting galleries! One day with our school went to see like 10 galleries in Barcelona and I felt very amazed, because they have a lot of variety, and I like the fact that the are very versatile, so when they change the artist of the exhibition, the space change a lot with the different artwork, and in New York must be more fantastic, because they can exhibit a lot more of artists!
