LatchKey Gallery is a nomadic contemporary art gallery that looks to re-imagine the brick and mortar via intimately curated exhibitions, salon series and events by partnering with various spaces around NYC. LKG is a response to the changing market place and the erosion of the traditional art gallery. It is the brain child of Style Curator, Natalie Kates and gallerist/curator, Amanda L. Uribe. Each with their unique curatorial approaches, come together to create experiences centered around emerging and mid career artists.
LatchKey Gallery is open by appointment only. Inquiries into events or participating Artists can be made by emailing info@LatchKeyGallery. Artwork from the exhibition are featured on our website www.LatchKeyGallery.com and on our art.sy page.
