Ki Smith Gallery coming to the Gusto House on 4th Street
When we lasted checked in at the Gusto House at 197 E. Fourth St., Colin Huggins and Shaina Martinez were live streaming operas from here between Avenue A and Avenue B.
The space was then available again... and the other night, EVG contributor Stacie Joy stopped by to see East Village resident Ki Smith working inside... prepping the interior to be the new home of Ki Smith Gallery, which most recently showcased emerging artists from West 125th Street...
Smith has worked for 10 years as an independent curator. His résumé includes launching the Bushwick-based gallery and performance space Apostrophe in 2012.
We'll have more on the new location of the gallery in an upcoming post...
