Good Trouble

AOS / Atelier On Spring Galerie, venue for contemporary art, located at 19 Spring Street, Oyster Bay, New York, 11771 , will open to the public with its third exhibition, entitled Good Trouble.

The exhibition is a selection of artists who exercise a search, and non-conformist approach within their work process, challenging boundaries and comfort zones which create alternative realities, be it in words, paint, jewels or porcelain. Please join us, and meet the artists:

Opening reception: June 19, 2021, 6:00 – 8:00
