Northeastern Biennial Twenty Fifteen opens October 17, 2015 at four venues concurrently: Mahady Gallery at Marywood University, AFA Gallery, Hope Horn Gallery at the University of Scranton, and ArtWorks Gallery & Studio. The exhibition is juried by art dealer, Hal Bromm, an art dealer, who opened Tribeca’s first contemporary art gallery in 1976, where “new talent” shows introduced Keith Haring and David Salle to appreciative collectors long before they became well-known. He established Hal Bromm Art and Design in Manhattan and spent several years between New York and London as managing director for an English furniture design studio. In the 1980’s Bromm opened a satellite gallery in the East Village, and continues exhibiting national and international artists. He has also curated and promoted exhibitions in Key West and commissions for the Key West Art in Public Places and the Studios of Key West. Bromm has taught at the School of Visual Arts and worked with civic, planning, preservation, and arts organizations as an historic preservationist, designer, real estate developer. Along with prominent New York residents including Edward Albee, Robert DeNiro and James Rosenquist, Bromm lobbied for the designation of Tribeca as an historical district, and published The Texture of Tribeca, an award-winning book.
