The Bishop Gallery
New York | United States
The Bishop is a contemporary art gallery located in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn NY. Launched in 2012, The Bishop is an offspring of the Lamont Bishop Gallery in Washington DC. The owners, Erwin John and Stevenson Dunn were born and raised in Bed- Stuy. They decided a gallery at homebase was imperative for the ever changing borough.
The original idea for a gallery was birthed from the teachings and mentorship of Dr. Lamont Bishop. He instilled the ethos of business development and community development into the young owners. The Bishop operates with the notion of bringing accessiblity to the art community. Here, everyone is welcomed to view art or have their art displayed regardless of economic status or level of success.
