Gallery Hopping in Chelsea

One thing New York is known for is its fabulous art scene. The downtown neighborhood of Chelsea is home to over 100 art galleries, many of  which are free to the public. There is no better way to spend a weekend afternoon looking at art and walking around the charming neighborhood. Here are some galleries you should check out!

"Superstar" by Russell Young, on display at the Taglialatella Gallery

The Taglialatella Gallery on 10th Ave. between West 23rd and 24th St. is one of my favorites. Known for housing late 20th and 21st century contemporary art, the gallery holds the  works of Warhol, Haring, Banksy, Litchtenstein, and more.

Rosalind Fox Solomon's latest exhibit evokes the emotions of childhood. She is known for capturing the beauty in our bizzare world.

Another great gallery is the Bruce Silverstein Gallery. Located on West 24th St. between 10th and 11th Avenue, this photography gallery holds a range of interesting exhibits. The works of Rosalind Fox Solomon are on display, and will remain there until April 16th. 

                                The Hawkingson Clockwise exhibition currently on display at Pace Gallery 

The Pace Gallery is one of Chelsea's finest. Located on West 24th between 10th and 11th Ave, it has some of the best exhibitions. Currently the works of Tom Hawkingson are on display. Hawkingson specializes in the use of mechanics in his art. His work will be on display until April 23rd. 

Be sure to check out the neighborhood, as well! It is full of street art, great restaurants and shops, and of course, breathtaking town homes.
