The second annual New York Gallery Week May 6-8, 2011 will culminate with a three day presentation of over 60 solo gallery exhibitions, along with scores of free events and programs, the majority taking place inside the galleries themselves.
NYGW offers unique access to a wide range of special gallery-produced artistic experiences in one concentrated period of time. It is NYGW’s desire to refocus public attention toward the city’s long-standing exceptional gallery programming.
Like 2010, New York Gallery Week is actually a long weekend where galleries are open with extended hours. The 60 galleries and not-for-profit spaces span Chelsea, SoHo, the Lower East Side/Bowery, West Village, the Upper East Side, and 57th Street.
