We are an upcoming art gallery in Gowanus, Brooklyn.

We are here to celebrate the vitality of the Brooklyn arts community by presenting shows that combine art and performance, where diverse members of the community come together to feel joy, learn something and help support the living artists of NYC. We are currently hosting "pop-up" shows while we look for a permanent space.

THANK YOU for supporting Why Not Art in our inugural season! We were proud to host 6 art exhibitions from Oct 2021- June 2022.
