Claire Oliver Gallery opens in Central Harlem, cementing a new mini art district

January 28, 2020

 

Harlem, we have a new mini art district.

 

After 18 years in Chelsea, the Claire Oliver Gallery has moved to the ground floor of a four-story brick townhouse at 2288 Adam Clayton Powell Jr Boulevard between W 134th and W 135th Streets.

 

It joins two other new art spaces nearby: the African-inspired Kente Royal Gallery, which opened last summer at 2373 Adam Clayton Powell Jr Boulevard between W 138th and W 139th Streets, and the two-year-old Faction Art Projects/Gallery Eight at 2602 Frederick Douglass Boulevard at W 139th Street.

 

The dynamic Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, one avenue to the east, regularly exhibits art in its galleries.

 

 

The formerly-Chelsea-based gallery debuted on January 18 with a show featuring the work of Judith Schaechter, an artist who creates contemporary stained glass light boxes.

 

Schaechter is giving a talk at the gallery on February 8 and her exhibit is up through February 22.
