The uptown art scene is happening and one of the places you should visit on your cultural tour is ilon Art Gallery.
Located on 123rd between Adam Clayton and Frederick Douglas Boulevard, this very cool gallery (located in a brownstone!) is accessible by the 2/3 trains and A/C/D trains off the 125th street stop in Harlem. I have been before and the location, curated pieces and proprietor all make for a great experience.
ilon Art Gallery has a new show running from December 1, 2016 through March 4, 2017 and features work from 19 different artists.
From gallery owner Loni Efron “From the Archives celebrates each photographer’s hidden treasures. As an archivist for the past two decades, I have seen these beautiful prints but now they exist safely stored away. From the Archives is about these beauties and brings them out of the archives.”
The gallery is open Tuesdays, most Saturdays from noon to 6 pm and also by appointment.
