New Galleries

Two new galleries will open soon or have opened in the Greater Washington, DC area:

The 9th Street Gallery, owned by Zeki Fendikoglu is located in the historic Shaw District of Washington, DC, in a circa 1880 historic brownstone building. Their website is here and their address is 1306 9th Street NW, Washington, DC 20001. The gallery director is Ilknur Boray and their cuurent show is by two of the DC area's top magicians of the traditional darkroom and the digital darkroom: James Steele and Craig Sterling. The show runs through October 21, 2006.

After looking for a space for quite a while, the Randall Scott Gallery will open next November. The new gallery is located at 1326 14th street NW on the 2nd floor. That’s above Thai Tanic on the corner of 14th NW and Rhode Island in DC.

They will be working with Julia Fullerton-Batten, Larry Gipe, Margot Quan Knight, Lucy McLauchlan and Kelly Tunstall, and Josh Urso. They have also signed the super hot Amy Lin, whose minimalist work has been selling like gangbusters everywhere that she has exhibited in the last few months. Randall will also take his new gallery and artists to Art (212) in New York later this month.

They will also be developing a multiples division, Randall Scott Editions, which will publish editioned prints by various artists. Randall tells me that the first threee gallery shows will all be group shows.

Correction: Amy Lin has not signed with the Randall Scott Gallery, she was just taken to Art(21) in NYC.
