Over the course of five years, Light Grey Art Lab has hosted dozens of exhibitions, and featured the work of over one thousand artists. The gallery has published a range of creative products including books, tarot decks, and video games, created seasonal workshops led by industry leaders in visual design from places like Disney, Cartoon Network, and HBO, and established an annual international residency program in Iceland. Throughout, the people teaching, learning, exploring, creating, and discovering have connected with each other through Light Grey Art Lab.

“We’ve crossed paths with so many bright and talented people in the past five years,” says Light Grey Art Lab founder Lindsay Nohl, “and they’ve found each other as well. Despite being separated by thousands of miles in many instances, there’s a sense of camaraderie that we love to see. Friendships have been formed, careers have been nurtured, and experiences have been shared. There’s a sense that we’re all in this together.”  

Light Grey Art Lab is celebrating its five year anniversary by doubling-down on its specialties: the team is increasing the scope and frequency of their exhibitions, expanding the collaborative and educational opportunities on offer, and growing their physical space in a big way.

Light Grey Art Lab remains on the corner of 26th Street and Stevens Avenue, which it has occupied since 2012. But the modest-sized gallery is taking over the entire first floor of the charming 100-year-old building, tripling its footprint. In addition to the Main and Adjunct gallery spaces which comprise Light Grey Art Lab’s original 1,000 square foot space, the gallery is opening an additional 2,000 square feet, which is divided into the Salon, Satellite Gallery, Page Gallery, a dedicated workshop space, and a newly expanded shop.

To kick off this massive expansion, Light Grey Art Lab is launching five new exhibitions, one in each exhibition space. The opening reception for all 5 shows, as well as the grand unveiling of the new space is Friday, March 3rd, 2017.
