Apartment galleries have a special place in our heart. Norte Maar’s apartment gallery at the corner of Wyckoff Avenue and Suydam Street in Bushwick, served not only as the foundation of our visual art program but also a historic role in the development of the Bushwick art scene from 2006-2016. Alternative art spaces play a vital role in facilitating conversation, building community, and inspiring creative collaborations. Artist Lynn Sullivan hosts regular pop-up exhibitions in her studio and home.

Founded on the ideas of collaboration among artists, Norte Maar is always excited to learn about independent projects that take form when to or more artists create, respond, and explore the world together. One such project, initiated during the Autumn of 2015, features artists Abigail Doan (@lostinfiber) and Brece Honeycutt (@onacolonialfarm) who began a parallel process of collecting, diagramming, and altering select materials in an urban to rural dialogue intended to examine modern and historic connections in their daily lives.
