For art's sake: nyc gallery guide

While New York City is home to internationally renowned museums like The Museum of Modern Art and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, it is also the haven of countless incubators of aesthetic expression—art galleries. Clustered predominantly in and around neighborhoods like Chelsea, the Lower East Side, the Upper East Side and Brooklyn's Williamsburg, these exhibition spaces are celebrated both for the pieces they house and for their accessibility.

Galleries are open to the public generally from Tuesdays through Saturdays, free of charge—which includes glamorous opening-night receptions where sightings of celebrities and art-world titans are as prevalent as the wine served (also free). And although they're sprinkled throughout NYC, dense concentrations in the aforementioned areas make it easy to hop from one show to the next. We've assembled the following guide to help you navigate some of the City's most gallery-rich locales.
