Amidst announcements of galleries closing (see “Andrea Rosen Announces Closing of Chelsea Gallery”), there is some good news. Sara Kay, formerly of White Cube and Christie’s, will be opening a gallery on the Lower East Side at the end of September.

As the New York Times reports, the gallerist will be highlighting the work of women artists in particular. However, this decision is not a surprise as Sara Kay created POWarts (Professional Organization for Women in the Arts) in 2008, an association that spotlights and supports women working in the art world.

Her gallery will have a space of some 100 square metres. From 28 September, she will present the exhibition A Limitless Vision, which will concentrate on the collection of Audrey B. Heckler. Heckler was especially interested in outsider art. She began buying works at the Outsider Art Fair in 1993, moved in particular by what spoke to her. “I’m not afraid of unusual things. I like something different, something quirky”, she says.

The exhibition will be the perfect opportunity to discover self-taught artists like James Castle and Madge Gill, and to encourage the opening of a new space in the heart of New York.
