On June 6, Popup Gallery THE TROPS (35 E 1st St NYC) officially opened its doors in LES, featuring murals and drawings by iconic NYC artists.
Growing out of the pavement of New York City, The Trops offers a fresh new alternative to the typical gallery setting. In this dawn of the post-Covid age, artists have emerged from confinement with an abundance of highly-energized new work to share with the world. Moments Notice presents a survey of intimate drawings, from a diverse group of artists at different stages of their creative journey. These often personal, always meaningful, artworks are held together by common themes from dream logic, whimsical forms of caricature, and sketches of an imaginary exotic projected by creative souls under quarantine. These first blossoms are, we hope, the first sparks of a cultural explosion that will return a wounded New York City to the forefront of the international art world.
