Bond Street Gallery is closed.
Bond Street Gallery is located between Smith Street's chic restaurants and shops and the developing neighborhood of Gowanus. This location perfectly illustrates the gallery's mission, which is to present photography from the spaces in between-from artists who often fall through the cracks of the arbitrary and dated classifications of traditional curatorship.
Founded by photographer agent Bruce Kramer and photographer Robert DiScalfani, who lives and works in the neighborhood, Bond Street Gallery is the first photography gallery in the area. It is housed in a 100-year-old townhouse that the founders have restored while keeping the original structure of the building intact. Inside it has exposed brick walls, and out back is a tranquil courtyard.
Bond Street Gallery will blend fine art and commercial photography, the fields in which both founders have worked and lived for decades. "These two worlds are becoming more and more interwoven," says Kramer, "and we want to create an outlet that reflects that." The gallery will also mix vintage and contemporary, famous and undiscovered, homegrown and foreign.
