HARBOR'S FIRST SHOW
RIDGEWOOD WELCOMES NEW GALLERY
SAT. 1-12-13 TROUTMAN ST. RIDGEWOOD, NY
The former 17-17 Troutman artist loft-warehouse work/live space & home to many, is now fully renovated and is becoming even more populated with yet another upstart art gallery hoping to make good in Queens' little "Artsy Wood", and hopefully grab some headlines to boot.
Harbor opens it's door (#258 if you were curious) with an inagural group show titled EMERGENT SYSTEMS. I hadn't heard about the opening and after introducing myself to Anna Ortiz, one of Harbor's co-founders, I was whisked into a whirlwind of introductions to not only the other co-founders, but all (or most) of the artists involved in the show. This, by the way, is my favorite type of whisking (also my favorite type of whirlwind for that matter).
Packed house, and it's great that Ridgewood is pulling in crowds like this. It doesn't hurt to have multiple openings going on in the same building on the same night, as well as multiple artists and curators involved in one show, each with their own invited guests.
A very detailed line drawn computer aided map.
An interesting abstract with a carton of Newports glued onto it.
Attractive lettering near the entrance. This place, although new, means business. This is how we do it in Ridgewood.
The hallway leads down to Parallel Art Space, with one of the other two openings of the night in the same building.

Really a diverse group of artists represented in this show, and an interesting presentation for a new gallery right out of the gate. I look forward to future shows, and see them filling a gap left by a few of the other galleries that fell away in recent years.
Just another day in the life of an art juggernaut.
