The Daily News ran a great story this past Monday on librarian Boris Loselev and his effort to bring art exhibitions to his Brooklyn Public Library branch on Avenue X. Artists are booked at the library through May, and the exhibits draw visitors “in droves.”
Olga Rogachevskaya said she had better luck getting her pastel portraits of ten Jewish immigrants into Loselev’s gallery this month than she would have in a traditional one.
A gallery would want its cut of the resale, while the library is just focused on showing off the work, she said.
“It’s always great to exhibit your work,” said Rogachevskaya. “People see who you are and you might develope a following.”
