Garis & Hahn Set to Open Gallery on Bowery

Garis & Hahn have inked its first art gallery location on the Lower East Side.

The gallery that “mounts exhibitions focused on conceptual narratives and relevant conversations in contemporary art” will take a 2,422-square-foot space at 263 Bowery, between Stanton Street and East Houston Street. The gallery will consist of approximately 1,800 square feet on the ground floor and a 600 square foot lower level.

“[Mary and Sophie] were attracted to the Lower East Side/Bowery neighborhood as an alternative to Chelsea,” said Lee Block, a director of Winick Realty Group. “It is edgier and more vibrant and the art scene is growing with major galleries within a few blocks and The New Museum one block to the south.”

“The neighborhood as a whole is growing as well,” he added. “The area on Bowery south of Houston Street is hot now, with new retailers opening such as Anthropologie across the street from their gallery and multiple residential and hotel developments in the area.”

Mr. Block exclusively represented Garis & Hahn in the transaction. CBRE was on the opposite side of the table representing the landlord, D.N.P. 336 Convent Avenue LLC.

Garis & Hahn will host their inaugural exhibit, After The Fall, until February 16th. The exhibit showcases the work of seven photographers. The photographers are “exploring innovative permutations of the staged, the candid and the constructed,” a representative for the gallery noted in a statement.

Art crowd heads to The Bowery

The Garis & Hahn art gallery has leased its first location at 263 Bowery.

The Lower East Side storefront, located between Stanton and East Houston Streets, consists of 1,789 s/f on the ground floor and 633 s/f in the lower level.

Gallery co-owners Mary Garis and Sophie Hahn were drawn to the Lower East Side for its burgeoning art scene, where galleries that are gravitating away from Chelsea are bringing some of the latest, cutting-edge art.

“The LES arts scene has gone from fledgling to flourishing in the past few years, with no signs of slowing down,” Hahn said. “[In the LES] there are new galleries with exciting programs and outlooks on contemporary art and we can only hope to add to this vibrant art scene, promoting great art, educating collectors and supporting artists.”

Winick Realty Group director Lee Block, who represented Garis & Hahn in the lease transaction, noted, “Sperone Westwater is on their block and The New Museum is a block away. The area is hip and the activity on Bowery north of Houston is trending south. There are a lot of new developments and hotels coming to the immediate area.”

CBRE represented landlord D.N.P. 336 Convent Avenue LLC in the lease transaction.
