Who opens an art gallery in a shopping mall? Geniuses, thats who. Zen Art Space, located on the second floor outside of Saks Fifth, recently had its grand opening. And it had all the bells and whistles. Plus the attention of hundreds of passing mall shoppers trying to figure out what all the fuss about. one thing about a lot of art, is that the casual person does not know where to go look at any outside of the museums. A lot of galleries tend to get overlooked by the general public. but this one is in such a common area, it has no choice but to be seen.
the show featured work from many artist and new works from Jimmy Houston. The grand opening had Wu Shu and Origami demonstrations, as well as a fashion show.
the 1500sq ft space also has a spot where fashion designers can show their clothing along side art.
a lot of the artist in the show were kind of sectioned off and you don't really get the feel the cohesiveness of the work in the show. but then again, Zen doesn't portray itself as a fine art gallery. it is an space where artist can show a lot of their work in a high traffic area.
