The lovely boutique has been there since 2008 but unfortunately due to the economy, it could not survive on its own. So now the place is transformed by 2 talented ladies into an art gallery called Ground Floor Gallery, and Urban Alchemist takes up a corner of the gallery as its gift store. A selection of my Harlequin&Lionhead jewelry is available for purchase there!
I have been to the gallery opening last week and took some pics. You can also see a post about the gallery on the Daily News here.
|Temporary signage outside of the gallery. The window installation (the computers) is created by one of the artist, Lori Nelson. Her art, as you will see below, has a strong theme evolving the digital world.|

|I love June Glasson's interaction driven pieces. She has a few paintings on display.|
|Evan Venegas's Emodata is on display as well.|
|Elizabeth Riley's Moving/Still collection.|
|At the Urban Alchemist corner, you can see a beautiful collection of picture plates by Angela Rossi or Beat Up Creations.|
|Under the picture plates is the jewelry case showcasing some of the previous jewelry selections at the Urban Alchemist full scale store. Here you can find the best of the Eswera designs by Imaan Selim.|
|And some other designers including your truly, Harlequin&Lionhead!|
The Gloor Floor Gallery opens Fri-Sun, from noon-7pm. At any day you can find one of two brilliant ladies, Jill or Krista there.
