Best Brooklyn Art Galleries

In New York City you will find some of the largest collections of art in the United States. There is a huge art vibe that you will find in and out of the streets in New York.


1.  Transmitter – Bushwick

The self-described “collaborative curatorial initiative”. The doors opened to this gallery in 2014 by Rob de Oude, Carl Gunhouse, Sarah Jones, Rod Malin, Tom Marquet, and Mel Prest. The gallery is known to support two-person art shows and display very compelling pieces of art.


2.  Greenpoint Terminal Gallery

This gallery is run by a Bostonian artist, Brian Willmont, in an old historic warehouse that was once occupied by the American Manufacturing Corporation rope factory. This gallery is a special space that allows artists and the public to engage a mix of shows by emerging artists working in a variety of mediums.


3.  Minus Space – Dumbo

It is hard to find a gallery that confines the art program a single genre, but that is what Minus Space is about and has been since 2003. The primary genre is titled “reductive abstract art”, the gallery’s home in the heart of Dumbo has offered an international roster of artists adhering to the idea that focused on the paintings that emphasize color, flatness and simplified form.


4. Art in General – Tribeca

This gallery was founded in 1981 originally created as a non-profit and was a stalwart of the Downtown art scene. More than three decades this gallery has been operating – and has been creating programs to exhibit, bringing in new artists to reside.


5. Luhring Augustine Bushwick – Central Brooklyn

The Brooklyn branch of a beautiful gallery founded in 1985 by co-owners Lawrence R. Luhring and Roland J. Augustine is prominently known for being the only blue-chip operation of its kind in Bushwick. This gallery houses a lot of contemporary art.


6.  A.I.R. – Dumbo

A.I.R (artists in Residence, Inc.) was established in 1972 for the first not-for-profit, artist-direct and maintained gallery for female artists in the United States. This gallery was made by artists for artists to run organization and exhibition space. The founders wanted to create a space where artists can kick around ideas.


7.  Microscope Gallery – Central Brooklyn

Founded by artist-curators Elle Burchill and Andrea Monti, built in an old auto parts shop in 2010. This gallery specializes in film, video, sound, digital and performance art. The Microscope Gallery is also prominently known for showing the work of such pioneering figures of the 1960s and ’70s avant-garde as Jonas Mekas, George Maciunas and Michael Snow.


8. Signal – Bushwick

This gallery originally started out as a single studio that was shared by artists Alexander Johns and Kyle Clairmont Jacques. Signal was created because both Johns and Jacques felt that local art wasn’t being properly served well by the neighborhood. Since then, they’ve been presenting young emerging artists from around Brooklyn.


9.  Clearing – Central Brooklyn

This gallery in Brooklyn focuses on contemporary art by a growing international roster of young emerging artists with up-to-the-minute sensibilities.
