WALLWORKS NEW YORK TO OPEN NEW SPACE AT BRONX KREATE HUB THIS SATURDAY WITH GROUP EXHIBITION!
After five successful years on Bruckner Blvd., WALLWORKS NEW YORK is ready to open its doors at their new space at Bronx Kreate Hub this Saturday. On January 11, the new gallery space will hold a reception for their first show of the new year--a group exhibition celebrating the talent and creativity of The Bronx.
The Bronx Does It Better will feature works from Bronx-born artists, Bronx-based artists and artists whose work celebrates and elevates The Bronx. Titled after the Instagram hashtag that is utilized by Bronx-based businesses and creatives, The Bronx Does It Better is the perfect way to premier the new gallery space at Bronx Kreate Hub; a new building featuring affordable studios for creatives.
Highlights of the exhibition include four large-scale collaborative canvases featuring Tats Cru (Bio, Nicer, Bg183, How & Nosm), Crash and Daze that have only ever been displayed once in public. Alongside are photographs from Bronx powerhouses Joe Conzo, David Gonzalez and Ricky Flores; portrait and still life work from emerging artists Jadie Meprivert and Haley Robinson; illustrations from Olga Correa and urban plein air paintings of Bronx landscapes from Valeri Larko. On view will also be a selection of gallery exhibited artists MIST, MadC, FENX, Steph Burr, Br163, JM Rizzi and Nick Walker, in company with gallery-produced editions and various prints.
The opening reception, sponsored by friends from The Bronx Beer Hall will offer visitors the chance to take in the exhibition, the new gallery space and the opportunity to see Bronx Kreate Hub (limited studio spaces still available).
