I am writing you all today with exciting news about the future of Like the Spice Gallery
! The past six years have been an incredible time of growth for the gallery and our artists. Starting off as a small art studio on the ground floor of 224 Roebling St., Williamsburg, Brooklyn, in June of 2006, LTS flourished into an internationally recognized emerging contemporary art gallery. Like the Spice's history has been an exciting one with sold out exhibitions, LTS solo and group shows reviewed in a plethora of magazines, blogs, and newspapers, our exhibitions traveling from Williamsburg to London then beyond, and our ever expanding participation in international art fairs. As we move into a new phase of our growth we wanted to start off by thanking you for your support over the past six years, without you all there could be no Like the Spice Gallery. With all that said, Like the Spice Gallery will be leaving the constraints of 224 Roebling St. to expand to numerous locations, shows, and events throughout the United States and abroad. As we look for a new location we hope you keep up with all of our projects next year including a weekly updated website, a tremendous group exhibition at the92YTribeca
, artist studio tours in Fall 2012 and Spring 2013
, pop up exhibitions across the world (Locations announces summer 2012), and various projects by Like the Spice Gallery's Artists.
