Spazio Amanita coming to the Bowery

Renovations continue inside the papered-up storefront at 313 Bowery, where we've learned that Spazio Amanita is opening a gallery this fall here between First Street and Second Street. 

Here's more about the gallery, founded by Caio Twombly, the son of sculptor Alessandro Twombly and grandson of the painter Cy Twombly:
Amanita was founded in 2021 with the primary goal of supporting artists, from all backgrounds and nationalities, at various levels of their careers. Amanita provides our artists with resources and exhibition opportunities to help foster and grow their practices. Amanita has gallery locations in New York City and Florence, as well as a residency program in the Etruscan town of Bassano in Teverina. In addition to our permanent gallery locations, Amanita has organized exhibitions in Miami, LA, Milan, and St Moritz.
You can follow the gallery's Instagram account for updates. 

Patagonia was in this storefront for nine years, departing back in the fall.

Previously, the address was a pop-up shop for a rock-inspired clothing line called Andrew Charles created by Andy Hilfiger and Steven Tyler ... and the Morrison Hotel Gallery. And before all this: The space adjacent to CBGB housed the CBGB Record Canteen and, later, the 313 Gallery. The former CBGB next door at 315 Bowery remains the John Varvatos outpost.

This is good news we can always use a good art gallery in the area. I look forward to visiting it when it is open and viewing their exhibits.
