April 23, 2021, New York— New Apostle Gallery is pleased to announce the grand opening of its new Westchester location. The inaugural exhibition will be open to the public on the weekend of May 15th/16th and then by appointment until Sunday, May 23. The gallery is located at 35 Grove St, Mount Vernon, NY 10550.
The gallery, originally founded by artist David Hollier in Bushwick, Brooklyn moved to the new Westchester premises in 2019. The gallery has exhibited in several art fairs in New York and Miami and had two Brooklyn-based pop-up shows.
The May exhibition will be the first time the gallery opens its doors to the Westchester community. This Inaugural exhibition will feature artwork by a curated selection of the gallery’s represented artists in addition to several well-established, New York-based artists.
“It’s certainly not your typical Westchester storefront gallery…” says founder David Hollier, “… think more Chelsea or Bushwick warehouse gallery. We’ve tried to create a clean white box, but it still definitely has a working factory feel to it.” Hollier continues, “We’ve been doing art fairs for the past ten years. I feel we’ve developed a good understanding of the commercial aspects of the contemporary art world and I now work alongside other artists who share my desire to introduce new audiences to contemporary art at prices that make sense.”
With a must-see program of events and exhibitions, in both NYC and Westchester, the gallery hopes to bridge the gap between the city’s rich art scene and Westchester’s fast-growing audience, nurturing an artistic community that offers an alternative to the city’s often saturated and over-priced offerings.
Hollier concludes, “Our main focus is to bring high quality, engaging contemporary artwork to Westchester’s growing young dynamic audience at affordable and competitive prices.”
The opening exhibition will be a free event with a food and wine reception and valet parking.
