Ground Floor Gallery Turns 5 years old and they are celebrating!

Saturday, May 12th, 2018

This spring, Ground Floor Gallery turns 5 years old! To commemorate the occasion, they will be presenting an anniversary show in five parts: a sequence of solo exhibitions between May and August 2018, featuring five artists they’ve shown in past group exhibitions. FYI: The Gallery will be offering a surprise collector’s item at each opening reception. Stay tuned!

The first iteration is artist Peter Gynd’s Blanketed: Textiles, Culture and the Landscape. Recent paintings and photographs. This is the first New York solo exhibition of the artist’s work. Known for his paintings and photographs featuring blanket-cloaked figures staged against patterned backgrounds, landscapes, or interior scenes, Gynd’s work stems from an exploration of the relationships between textiles, regional cultures and landscape.
Opening Reception: Friday, May 18th, 6-8:30pm. The exhibition is runs May 18th – June 3rd

Brooklyn’s Ground Floor Gallery presents Women at Work

Friday, May 4th, 2018

Ground Floor Gallery’“Women at Work” features three Brooklyn-based woman artists – Natalie Baxter, Paola Citterio, and Leslie Tucker – whose work questions traditionally masculine or feminine labor roles and materials by reinterpreting family histories, consumer culture and politics.

Natalie Baxter employs sewing and quilting techniques from her grandmother to create soft sculptures exploring Americana and the political zeitgeist; Paola Citterio creates pieces blending the traditional craftwork she learned from the women in her childhood home (knitting, sewing, felting and baking) with found objects from city streets; and Leslie Tucker translates her passion for satire, consumer culture, and decoding human nature into suggestive digital collages layered with meaning.

The exhibition is on-going with a closing reception on May 13th 2 – 4pm.

Ground Floor Gallery presents Sugar is Sweet: A Valentine’s Art Pop-up for the Caribbean

Friday, February 9th, 2018

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet
And . . . we haven’t forgotten you!

On Tuesday February 13th, from 6 – 9 at Brooklyn’s NU Hotel, come to Ground Floor Gallery’s winter pop-up Sugar is Sweet: A Valentine’s Art Pop-up for the Caribbean.

The gallery will be selling original, small art works – conceived as Valentines – by dozens of local, emerging artists. Each will be priced at $75 with $25 from each sale supporting hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico and St. John: two Caribbean-American territories that share a fraught history in the sugar industry and are oft synonymous with sunny escapes. The day-to-day reality doesn’t necessarily reflect that vision – especially now, mere months after Hurricanes Irma + Maria devastated these cherished islands.

This show is a follow-up to the Gallery’s successful 2017 show “Marked Urgent,” that raised $1,000 for the Committee to Protect Journalists from dozens of your $25 donations!  This year, they’re hoping to repeat history with a new partner and location: Brooklyn’s NU Hotel at 85 Smith St. Brooklyn, NY .
