440 Gallery | Brooklyn NY

Shop talk, answers to your FAQs, and a peek behind the scenes of an artist-run fine art gallery in Park Slope

Oct/Nov: What’s going on with 440 Gallery Artists, part 1

The fall art-show scene is in full swing and here’s where we are at:

440 Gallery is on the walls at BrooklynWorks at 159, with an on-going showcase of work from every artist at the gallery.

∧  440 pops up at BrooklynWorks at 159 We’re pleased to partner with this neighborhood co-working space on 20th Street to showcase our work. Now and in upcoming months, every 440 Gallery artist will be showing work in this cool, Greenwood Heights location. The views are great! It’s not often that the entire gallery gets to show together as a group, and we hope you’ll take advantage of this unique opportunity to see the full range of media, styles and concepts all in one space. The public is welcome to visit the space during BrooklynWorks business hours, check their website for specifics. Lunch in the neighborhood afterwards? Check out El Nopal Restaurant & Juice Bar at 631 Fifth Avenue near 18th Street—Joy Makon recommends it for the freshly-made tacos and the sweet people who work there.
