NEW YORK, NY.- After years of planning and construction two new floors have been added to the gallery's building in the Lower East Side of NYC. Beginning with the opening of the Fall season, the gallery will inaugurate these new exhibition spaces.

“After seven years on Grand Street, it was time to expand. We wanted to give our artists further options to present their work,” Marc Straus said. “The Lower East Side was always a haven for immigrants, and my father was one. His textile store was on the corner across the street from the gallery. This neighborhood has extraordinary vitality and since opening our gallery on Grand Street a significant number of wonderful galleries have opened nearby. This is a place of risk and hope, which is what contemporary art is about. As challenging as construction projects can be, we are really happy with the outcome.”

The new third floor is an intimate project space with hickory floors. The fourth floor is a large loft with a skylight and a panoramic North facing window looking over the cityscape.

The building, 299 Grand Street, is a 200 year-old former tenement building. During the mid to late 20th century the building housed retail textile stores. Finding hints of the structure’s past, like bricked over former doorways on both sides of the building, was an unexpected and interesting part of the construction process.

The gallery invites you to visit our current exhibit, “Stereo Love Seat Hot Wheels,” On view through July 28th. On September 7th Marc Straus will open with exhibits on all four floors.
