New York City's art scene extends far beyond the big museums and small, expensive galleries of Lower Manhattan! Choose from three fascinating two-hour walking tours, and explore the colorful niche art galleries of the trendy New York neighborhoods of DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge) , LIC (Long Island City) and Williamsburg.

Led by a professional guide and experienced curator, you will visit a variety of galleries and uncover a wide selection of artwork, including contemporary, emerging, paper and street art. On all tours you have the opportunity to talk with welcoming and engaging gallerists and even purchase work on display. Escape Manhattan for the afternoon and discover the rich cultural melting pot of three New York neighborhoods on this stimulating art tour.
DUMBO Gallery Tour
Find out why the neighborhood "Down Under the Manhattan Bridge" has a reputation as one of New York City's premier arts districts! Visit AIR (Artists in Residence) Gallery, the first artist-run gallery for women in the USA and Bose Pacia Gallery, specializing exclusively in contemporary South Asian art. See Kunsthalle Galapagos Gallery, a new art space dedicated to offering artists a unique opportunity to produce high-caliber, large-scale installation work free from commercial concerns.

LIC Gallery Tour

On the Long Island City Gallery Tour, you can visit artists, interact with them directly and learn how to become an art collector on an affordable budget! Discover several old buildings and re-purposed manufacturing sites where art is being exhibited and made, including M55 Art, a gallery dedicated to bringing contemporary art exhibitions to the public, and Space Womb, a contemporary art gallery that exhibits abstract works from emerging and established Asian artists.

Williamsburg Gallery Tour

Stroll through one of the hippest communities in Brooklyn and discover Williamsburg's galleries showcasing forward thinking art! Williamsburg is home to many ethnic enclaves and is an influential hub for indie rock and hipster culture. Visit Figureworks, a gallery dedicated to fine art of human form, and Causey Contemporary Gallery, which cultivates and represents contemporary artists from emergence through their maturity. Finally, uncover the work of emerging and mid-career artists at Pierogi Gallery, which displays an eclectic range of media.

This was a fabulous way to begin a NYC holiday! The DUMBO neighborhood is filled with art with no pretense, and many, many friendly residents and shop owners. With its cobble-stoned streets and avenues, one could be in Amsterdam or parts of Boston/ San Francisco. The guide for this tour was an artist herself from Harlem; her comments on the galleries' works were up-to-date and informative. As well, her knowledge of the development of this neighborhood as one of Brooklyn's finest gems was genuine and interesting. I highly recommend this tour as you will come away feeling more a part of a sometimes overwhelmingly large city!

Saw some very interesting galleries especially enjoying the graffiti art and the walk around DUMBO.
