JAZZ, CLASSICAL MUSIC AND THE ARTS IN NEW YORK CITY

In Memoriam – 31Grand Gallery

Edgy Art Central is closing. For nine years, Megan Bush and Heather Stephens pushed the envelope, giving more space to irreverent, important, funny, provocative, cutting-edge artists than practically any other gallery in New York. They were good when they were in Williamsburg and when they made the move to Ludlow Street last year, there weren’t many shows or openings that we missed. It was at 31Grand that we discovered the extraordinary work of Francesca Lo Russo, Barnaby Whitfield, Jason Clay Lewis, Jeph Gurecka and many others.

 

According to their press release, “Megan Bush continues to work as an independent stylist while chasing after Polly the chihuahua and 4-year-old Henry. Heather Stephens continues to art direct at the Wall Street Journal and is joining Black & White Gallery in Chelsea.” Black & White share Stephens’ edgy vision and ought to benefit tremendously. The closing party at 31Grand is Saturday Dec 20 at 6; join us and we’ll reminisce.
