Ground Floor Gallery presents the Terraforming

Wednesday, June 6th, 2018

To Celebrate their fifth anniversary the Ground Floor Gallery is presenting an exhibition in five acts – its time for Act 2: Ryan Sarah Murphy | Terraforming

“My current work consists of wall-mounted collages made of found cardboard and hardcover books. There are certain rules and limitations within the making of my work that provide a general starting point. For instance there is never any paint or additional color applied to the pieces; the color is strictly that of the cardboard or book cover. Any text, printing, or graphics are cut/torn away from the cardboard and the remaining material is what gets used.” – Artist Ryan Sarah Murphy

The exhibition is on view from June 8th – 24th. Artist’s reception on Thursday June 14th 6:00 – 8:30pm

Ground Floor Gallery Turns 5 years old and they are celebrating!

Saturday, May 12th, 2018

This spring, Ground Floor Gallery turns 5 years old! To commemorate the occasion, they will be presenting an anniversary show in five parts: a sequence of solo exhibitions between May and August 2018, featuring five artists they’ve shown in past group exhibitions. FYI: The Gallery will be offering a surprise collector’s item at each opening reception. Stay tuned!

The first iteration is artist Peter Gynd’s Blanketed: Textiles, Culture and the Landscape. Recent paintings and photographs. This is the first New York solo exhibition of the artist’s work. Known for his paintings and photographs featuring blanket-cloaked figures staged against patterned backgrounds, landscapes, or interior scenes, Gynd’s work stems from an exploration of the relationships between textiles, regional cultures and landscape.
Opening Reception: Friday, May 18th, 6-8:30pm. The exhibition is runs May 18th – June 3rd

Ground Floor Gallery presents Sugar is Sweet: A Valentine’s Art Pop-up for the Caribbean

Friday, February 9th, 2018

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet
And . . . we haven’t forgotten you!

On Tuesday February 13th, from 6 – 9 at Brooklyn’s NU Hotel, come to Ground Floor Gallery’s winter pop-up Sugar is Sweet: A Valentine’s Art Pop-up for the Caribbean.

The gallery will be selling original, small art works – conceived as Valentines – by dozens of local, emerging artists. Each will be priced at $75 with $25 from each sale supporting hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico and St. John: two Caribbean-American territories that share a fraught history in the sugar industry and are oft synonymous with sunny escapes. The day-to-day reality doesn’t necessarily reflect that vision – especially now, mere months after Hurricanes Irma + Maria devastated these cherished islands.

This show is a follow-up to the Gallery’s successful 2017 show “Marked Urgent,” that raised $1,000 for the Committee to Protect Journalists from dozens of your $25 donations!  This year, they’re hoping to repeat history with a new partner and location: Brooklyn’s NU Hotel at 85 Smith St. Brooklyn, NY .

Provenance at ground floor gallery on-going until July 9th

Friday, June 23rd, 2017

ground floor gallery is pleased to present Provenance featuring artists Ai Campbell, Sara Jones and Anne Mourier-DeFalco. The exhibition is an investigation of unfamiliar family histories through travel, artmaking, and conjecture.  

The exhibition illustrates each artist’s attempt to demystify an estranged familial connection through explorations both in and outside of the studio space. By revisiting unknown or misunderstood identities and destinations of yore, Campbell, Jones and DeFalco intimately craft tender, mixed-media portraits that veer fluidly between the biographical and autobiographical.  As a result, the exhibition emerges as a real time platform where hazy ancestral ties are elucidated and reimagined.
