La Bodega is an experimental hybrid exhibition space/artist studio. It is themed after the local neighborhood Bodega or corner store. While the name is in Spanish, the concept of the corner store as a community center, a place where one goes for convenience and necessity, is a universal concept. We all bring our own experiences and preconceived notions about corner stores with us - but my hope is to provide a space for emerging artists to exhibit their work to a receptive community.
The project/space is still at its infancy, but the community will dictate its path.
La Bodega Gallery is located at the MFA Studios at Stony Brook University, NY.
