"Walk-Ins Welcome" Exhibition

Umbrella Arts

This event has ended.

People think of the East Village as a place to experience the “bohemian” life, like watching the movie or play Rent only now with expensive restaurants, bridal shops, and fancy little restaurants. To those that remember the East Village of the 80’s, the thinking is that gentrification has replaced the galleries and artists – it just isn’t true. Walk-ins Welcome celebrates the continuing East Village art scene in a salon-style exhibition that is constantly changing.

Many participating artists like Mark Kostabi, Liz-n-Val and others had some of their first exhibitions in the East Village. Conrad Vogel exhibits a stencil painting that he originally showed at Civilian Warfare. A number of the galleries or alternative spaces were started by artists, such as Helga Saelvetti at Public Image Gallery exhibiting a pastel and Christopher Chambers at Bohemia After Dark, the B.A.D. Museum, exhibiting a sculpture. One of the magazines capturing the scene was Cover, started by Jeffrey Cyphers Wright, who exhibits a collage from his new publication Live Mag!. M.Henry Jones and Atticus Jones is a father and son duo exhibiting a collage that brings together the past, present and future of the East Village.
