Best Recession Art Phoenix 2010 - 5 & 6 Fine Art Space - CLOSED
We're not going to make another joke about the economy. What we will do instead, however, is tell you about the best thing to come out of these rough times: the "pop-up galleries" along Marshall Way in Scottsdale. The past couple of years have seen too many gallery closures along the once-bustling Scottsdale Artwalk fave. Early this year, Bentley Calverley of Bentley Gallery read an article in the New York Times about "pop-up galleries." In big cities like New York and London, landlords have temporarily rented vacant space to artists at super-low prices. The folks at Bentley Gallery made some calls to their neighbors, and landlord Dewey Schade answered. With his reduced rent, 5 & 6 Fine Art Space and other pop-ups have treated Scottsdale to some fabulous art shows ever since. Nice silver lining, eh?
