Paul Calendrillo New York Art Gallery Closing Tomorrow, But Looking For New Roosevelt Island Space And Hoping To Re-Open Soon - You're Invited To Closing Reception April 29

Roosevelt Island resident Paul Calendrillo,

owner of the Paul Calendrillo New York Art Gallery,

reports the Gallery will be closing tomorrow but hopes to open in a new Roosevelt Island space soon.

According to Mr. Calendrillo:
We Are Moving

Gallery will close permanently on April 29th

Join us for our closing reception on Saturday

April 29th from 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Our run here at 507 Main St. has been financially rewarding and we have enjoyed introducing some of the most promising New York artists to Roosevelt Island. We sincerely appreciate your warm response to our artists and us.

Here are some interesting facts. Approximately 50% of our sales have been from “off the Island” clients. We have talked to hundreds of people, many of whom have never visited the Island and found it very convenient and beautiful once they came. Although the space has been vacated for some time, we had five businesses approach us to inquire renting the space on a longer-term basis and one did. This occurred from our first week in operation.

We developed a loyal following that came to every exhibition and even tourists stopped by to sign our guest book. We even included a few Island residents in one of our shows. For these reasons, we are pursuing new space on the Island. Check the local press coverage for news or sign our guest book and include your email address if you would like updates directly from us. Thanks again for all your support.

Paul and Marian Calendrillo
I spoke with Mr. Calendrillo last September about his plans for the Gallery.

The Calendrillo's did a great job with their Gallery. Hope they open in a new space soon.

A new tenant will be taking over the space.
