Brooklyn’s Real Fine Arts Closes

The gallery Real Fine Arts in Brooklyn, founded by the artists Ben Morgan-Cleveland and Tyler Dobson in 2008, has closed, reports Andrew Russeth of Artnews. The space hosted more than one hundred shows and events during its lifetime and exhibited the work of Maggie Lee, Georgia Sagri, Stefan Tcherepnin, Jon Pestoni, Lena Henke, and Jana Euler, among many other artists.

“At a time when so many galleries—whether fledgling or established—build rosters that seem most concerned with having a little something for everyone, RFA instead opted for a program that felt focused and selective,” writes Russeth. “One of my great regrets is that I didn’t get to see it all.”

The gallery’s last show, “OMFG Orgy of Stupid” by Antek Walczak, closed on March 10, 2018.
