We’re sad to announce 31GRAND is closing after nine wonderful years. We’ve had a great run, and all the artists we have worked with have been such amazingly wonderful talented people. Please join us on this Saturday for the exhibition, Death is Not the End, to celebrate their talent and toast a sad farewell.
Death Is Not The End will be a ONE-NIGHT ONLY retrospective group exhibition; artists from all stages of 31GRAND’s past and present have been invited to choose one work to be hung. This large, diverse show will include assemblage, animated videos, drawings, photography, pastels, and paintings in a range of materials and styles. The result will not only be a unique demonstration of the amazing range of our artists and a poignant reminder of the past decade, but will also be a celebration—because friends making merry is how we would like to commemorate 31GRAND. We started out as a family and want to end as a family. The art and the artist are always what has been truly important.
Please join us for some reminiscing, some carousing, some art, and some old friends.
Artists include: Adam Stennett, Barnaby Whitfield, Carol “Riot” Kane, Elizabeth Huey, Fanny Bostrom, Randy Polumbo, Francesca Lo Russo, Helen Garber, Jade Dylan, Jason Clay Lewis, Jason Cole Majer, Jason Weatherspoon, Jeff Wyckoff, Jeph Gurecka, Joel Adas, Jon Elliott, Karen Heagle, Kristen Schiele, Kyle Simon, Lauren Gibbes, Magalie Guérin, Maureen Cavanaugh, Megan Leborious, Michael Anderson, Michael Cambre, Gina Magid, Michael Pope, MTAA, Nelson/Electric Chaircut, Orly Cogan, Paul Brainard, Rebecca Chamberlain, Sean McDevitt, Spencer Tunnick, Tim Wilson, Tom Sanford, Ursula Brookbank, and MORE
Run by owners and co-directors Megan Bush and Heather Stephens, 31GRAND opened in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 1999 and moved in July 2007 to our current home in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Over the course of nine years, we have shown painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, and video by local, national, and international artists. As one of the founding members of the Williamsburg Gallery Association, we have been committed to introducing the public to talented emerging artists as well as working with mid-career and established artists.
Megan Bush continues to work as an independent stylist while chasing after Polly the chihuahua and 4-year-old Henry. Heather Stephens continues to art direct at the Wall Street Journal and is joining Black & White Gallery in Chelsea.
