Bay Ridge art galleries? Yes, they exist, and they’re growing rapidly, bringing together our already sizable community of local artists… and attracting international talent. Today on the show we are sitting down with local gallery impresarios Jeannine Bardo and Elena Soterakis to get a look behind-the-scenes at how our local galleries are run.
