You could be forgiven for thinking there’s been a minor rip in the space-time continuum if you came across Corina Reynolds’s exhibition at Open Source Gallery by chance.
Just before 24th Street slopes onto Third Avenue with its rumbling noise of the Gowanus Expressway is a something unexpected for this part of South Brooklyn: a white walls, contemporary art gallery. 210 Gallery is quietly nestled between the green spires Our Lady of Czenstochowa church and the Gowanus inlet industry that rises its smoke stacks before an almost clear view of the Statue of Liberty. Despite the gallery being just around the corner from my apartment, I’d never stepped inside, always being drawn away by the comforting siren song of my coffee machine and potential rest after finally making it home after working all day in Manhattan. But I’d glimpsed its small, yet intriguing, shows through the large windows, and finally paid the gallery a visit last Sunday.
