The Front Room Gallery has been a one stop shop for art enthusiasts since it opened in 1999. They are a contemporary fine arts gallery that started in Brooklyn and have moved to Chinatown on Hester Street. Many of their pieces are tied back to social responsibility including political, environmental, and social topics.

Their focus is on exhibiting photography, conceptual and installation based work by emerging artists as well as mid-career ones with an emphasis placed primarily on photographic images but also including sculpture or video installations. The Front Room Gallery has exhibited the work of several artists, including Ken Ragsdale, Thomas Broadbent, Paul Raphaelson, Patricia Smith, Sean Hemmerle, and more. In addition to its exhibition program, the gallery also organizes artist talks, screenings, and performances.

The Front Room Gallery is a contemporary art space located at 48 Hester Street in New York City. The Front Room Gallery is open to the public Thursday through Sunday from 12pm to 6pm, and also by appointment.

Past Exhibitions

The last exhibition was called “Holiday Show Housewarming at Mother in Law’s in Germantown”, NY on December 11th. What I really like about the Front Room Gallery is the huge selection of art exhibitions that you can see online. Check out their website for the complete list of exhibitions.

You’ll find Front Room Gallery in Chinatown New York just a block from the Lower East Side. The address is 48 Hester Street (between Essex and Ludlow streets).

What can you do after visiting the Front Room Gallery?

If you want to visit more art galleries, I recommend the Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery, McKenzie Fine Art or the Museum at Eldridge Street that’s just around the corner. You could also visit one of the highlights of Chinatown: the Mahayana Temple is less than a 10-minute walk away.
