Stopping by Sozo gallery last week, we were warmly greeted by Hannah (the owner) and her assistants. They were busy hanging art and getting things ready for an opening yet let us know about the exhibit, explained they were signing a lease for their new location, and invited us to come back the next evening for the reception. We returned to find a remarkable transition with beautiful paintings, photographs, and sculptures curated throughout the gallery. Artists spoke about their art and Hannah and her staff created a welcoming atmosphere. It was a delightful evening!
All the reviews are about the owners, or cleanliness, the space, the location. These are irrelevant. Its about the art the choose to exhibit. I dont care how nice the owners are. Im looking at art. Sothe first criticism: like all local art galleries they present them as retail. It looks like a retail space. Pictures, Ill call them, crammed in. Walls covered in pictures on top of pictures. Tableswith clothes. Is the problem that women own these galleries? This is why these so called galleriesdont last long. I visit NYC galleries yearly. Which is what these gallery owners should do. Not to mention how mundane the art isthats another conversation.
Small, vibrant gallery featuring an individual artist's work. Last night they had a meet and greet with the artist. I'm not sure how often exhibits are changed or rotated. The pieces are also for sale.
Beautiful Gallery in a bright new space. Well curated collection. I had such a great time chatting with Morgan, be sure to stop in if you get a chance. Parking available on site.
This place is amazing. Hannah is great
