Sara Kay Gallery debuts on 2nd Street

The Sara Kay Gallery is now open at 4 E. Second St., just off the Bowery, in space that previously housed the Rivington Arms gallery.

This is the first gallery for Kay, whose career includes stints as director of the White Cube gallery in London, director of the fine art department at Jan Krugier Gallery and as a specialist for Christie’s, per published reports.

Per the Gallery's website:

Her diverse expertise will drive the gallery’s genre-defying programming, which will span a wide range of art historical periods and movements, and provide an expansive vision for collecting. The gallery will also put a special emphasis on supporting female artists.

The New York Times had more on the first exhibit:

The inaugural exhibition, “A Limitless Vision: The Collection of Audrey B. Heckler,” will show pieces from Ms. Heckler’s exceptional trove of works by self-taught artists such as Martín Ramírez, Aloïse Corbaz, Madge Gill, Adolf Wölfli and James Castle. Ms. Kay will also display hand-painted ceramics by Picasso and a cast by Dubuffet — artists who found inspiration in outsider art. “Dubuffet had an enormous collection of Art Brut,” or raw art, said Ms. Kay, “and was really a champion of this genre.”

Well it's official 🥂Thank you everyone for your support and the warm welcome to the LES!
