Norte Maar
Though this beloved Bushwick non-profit may not be large in size—when not involved in improbably enormous off-site shows or multi-disciplinary performances, it is housed in cofounder Jason Andrew’s Wyckoff Avenue apartment—its ambitions are huge, whether mounting a recent ballet showcasing women choreographers in London (curated by cofounder Julia K. Gleich) or organizing a superb exhibition of Brooklyn artists around a Giacometti drawing. Not bad for an apartment gallery!

One of just a few South Slope galleries still standing, Open Source and its cofounders Monika Wuhrer and Gary Baldwin have bounced back from the 2010 fire that consumed their tiny 17th Street space, expanding to a larger spot up the block where they continue to put on terrific exhibitions and host recurring mainstays like the Soup Kitchen’s collaborative meal happenings and the Soap Box Derby.
