On Thursday, November 5th from 5.30 to 8.30pm The Giacobetti Paul Gallery opens in the heart of Dumbo. Its inaugural exhibition, 'SHOT', features the photography and video of Simon Kahn, Cynthia Lawson Jaramillo, Ji Ye Kim, Mylène Giacobetti and Jimmy Fountain. Discuss the mission of the new gallery with Stephen or plumb the depths of the work with the artists, all over a glass of gallery wine. The show will run through November 29th with regular hours Wednesday through Sunday 12 to 6pm. Closed for Thanksgiving. For more information visit

The Giacobetti Paul Gallery opens with a bang. On the surface, 'Shot' is an exhibition of works that were brought to life through a camera lens. Everything after that is a paradox. Photographic paintings, still motion pictures, moving still pictures, the menace of the heartland, the natural elegance of the urban landscape and the ugliness of vanity. Or, at least, the irony. There are hints of Hockney's polaroids, echoes of Cormac McCarthy, Monet with a Nikon and even a little Bill Maher. And each of the works in a brand new voice. It is a fascinating exhibition.

To get to Giacobetti Paul by subway take the F train to the York St stop. Down the hill a block and 2 blocks to the left. By car it's anybody's guess but type in the address 111 Front St on Mapquest and see what they say.

The Giacobetti Paul Gallery has been a long time in the making. The new home in Dumbo is 'New York permanent', we're there for at least the next 5 years. For the next 9 months we will present a new exhibition each month and coordinate the openings with the Dumbo First Thursdays, a monthly extravaganza featuring most, if not all, of the best galleries in the area. We are very excited about the new gallery which marks the beginning of the next phase of this remarkable project. We hope that you will join us for the openings and keep up to date with our progress by regularly checking the new website,
