Gardens On Orchard

Lesley Heller

54 Orchard St, New York

July 12 - August 18, 2017 

Six galleries on Orchard Street are teaming up this summer to present exhibitions exploring the theme: Gardens on Orchard.

Historic Orchard Street, on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, was once a literal orchard and garden belonging to James De Lancey during the Revolutionary War. By the mid 1800s the property was divided up, making way for immigrant housing, pushcarts and storefront businesses. Gardens on Orchard looks back at the origins of the street as a productive outdoor space and captures the streets’ history, energy and spirit.

Gardens on Orchard at Lesley Heller brings viewers back in time to Orchard Street as a garden space, presenting a group show of garden and outdoor themed works spanning painting, sculpture and photography.

Artists in the exhibition are: Ken Buhler, Paul Campbell, Elisabeth Condon, Natalie Frank, Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen, Catherine Howe, KK Kozik, Judith Linhares, Cyrilla Mozenter, Naoto Nakagawa, Katherine Newbegin, Jim Osman, Katia Santibañez, Fran Siegel, Sara Sosnowy, Daniel Wiener.

Participating galleries are: Foley Gallery, Lesley Heller, McKenzie Fine Art, Muriel Guépin, Pablo’s Birthday and Shin Gallery.
