a note from SCOTT AVETT:

“While traveling constantly and moving as often as I do, I have learned that to occupy my time with learning and or creating is crucial to my well-being as an artist. It is important, like all things, that a balance is enforced and that I don't shut myself off entirely from my surroundings for there is so much to see around us. Never-the-less there are times where there is no way to turn but inward as well as there are times that the only way to grow or complete a task is to disappear and work. The drawings available through envoy gallery are products of that time disappearing. Each come from one of three scenarios, which are all, linked to my time with The Avett Brothers and our creative journey. One is self-portrait, my most loyal and accessible subject matte r, second is the observational drawing which is a drawing of a person place or thing around me used as practice or just to kill time, and three are preliminary drawings that serve as research for the visual side of The Avett Brothers.”

From Pickles to Paintings in New York’s Lower East Side

The Lower East Side of Manhattan is being SoHo-fied. (Or is it Chelsea-fied?) Concrete floors are being poured next to Chinatown fish stalls. White walls are going up beside kitchen supply shops. And on-the-edge contemporary art is being sold in a neighborhood better known for peddling pickles and counterfeit Goyard bags.

map lower east site, nycIn the past year, a torrent of galleries has landed in this historically immigrant area, carving out a pioneering district for emerging artists. Anchoring the new gallery scene is the New Museum (235 Bowery; 212-219-1222;, which moved into a striking seven-floor home on the Bowery last December. Since then, nearby galleries seem to be opening every month.

Among the newest is the DCKT Contemporary (195 Bowery; 212-741-9955;, which relocated in March to a former lighting store down the street from the New Museum. Like many recent arrivals, the gallery had been in a smaller, more expensive space in Chelsea. “Chelsea had reached its saturation point,” said Dennis Christie, a director.

Part of the allure is the scrappy neighborhood itself. Unlike Chelsea, which can feel like a gallery ghetto, a Lower East Side gallery-hop weaves past landmark synagogues, hole-in-the-wall dumpling houses and grittier, un-hip slices of old New York. Read more...
