With the Lower East Side gallery scene in full boom
, it's even attracting out-of-towners: Lindsay Pollock
reports that Boston's Judi Rottenberg Gallery
(pictured) will close next month, six months shy of its 40th anniversary, and its director, Kristen Dodge, and manager, Patton Hindle, will be taking many of its artists to a new space on the LES called Dodge Gallery that will open in September. Dodge told the New England Journal of Aesthetic Research
: “The core of the roster will be Boston artists who are exhibiting in New York for the first time.” And actually, browsing the gallery's artist list
, that's quite promising. Looks like one of those walk-up buildings on Essex or Allen might make them feel most at home.
