Yezerski Gallery plans Nov. 7 reopening

After construction delays, Howard Yezerski Gallery hopes to finally reopen at 460 Harrison Ave. on Nov. 7 with a show of photographic banners by Lalla Essaydi of New York.

“I decided I wanted to be open for this first Friday because this is it for the season,” Yezerski tells me. Though he may open without everything being finished. “It don’t know if I’ll be completely in.”

Yezerski moved out of 38 Newbury St. at the end of June and hoped to be in the new space by the start of September, but the owner’s – GTI Properties – development of the building apparently fell behind schedule.

Yezerski says he got the keys to the new space “a couple weeks ago.” But he couldn’t begin to build it out for a week because his own contractor was out of town for the Jewish holidays. Now studs are up and electric lines are being put in. The walls and floor are yet to be finished.

“I’m excited,” Yezerski says. “And truth be told, I don’t feel like I lost that much this month given what’s been going on” – namely the economic crash.

Aug. 7, 2008: Yezerski move probably delayed.
March 25, 2008: Yezerski “is working out a lease to move.”
