Brooklyn >Pierogi 2000
The oldest and best of the Williamsburg art spaces..
If you only visit one gallery in the neighborhood, this should be it. Artist and sign painter Joe Amrhein opened Pierogi in 1994 on the site of a former loading dock when Williamsburg was hardly more than a fledgling arts scene. Pierogi is now an established stop on the New York gallery trail; expect to see struggling locals sharing turf with big names like Lawrence Weiner.
This is an excellent jumping-off point for emerging artists. Along with a regular exhibition schedule, Pierogi maintains extensive flat files, and many a dealer thumbs through them in search of new talent. The files are also a big draw for beginning collectors; a piece of work rarely costs more than a few hundred dollars, of which Amrhein takes a modest 20 percent. If you still need a reason to go, the openings have free beer and, of course, pierogis.
