Artists and aspiring gallery owners take note: the building that currently houses NOA Gallery in Bloomingdale has entered the market asking $650K. Although it was built in 1908 as a three bedroom rowhouse, now NOA is an acronym for the type of art featured in the gallery: New, Old and Abstract. Does this mean that the 30+ year old gallery is moving? Is it shutting down entirely?
At the time of publication, no one at NOA Gallery had responded to our request for a comment, although there will be an open house tonight at 6:00 p.m., the hour at which the gallery opens for business.
UPDATE: Michael Little of NOA Gallery called Curbed back and confirmed that he is selling the gallery. As the gallery is 30+ years old, he has a lot of inventory which he says will likely move online, at least temporarily, once the building has been sold.
