The Bishop operates with the notion of bringing accessiblity to the art community. Here, everyone is welcomed to view art or have their art displayed regardless of economic status or level of success. The owners, Erwin John and Stevenson Dunn were born and raised in Bed- Stuy. They decided a gallery at homebase was imperative for the ever changing borough.
The Bishop Gallery aims to provide emerging and established artists with an intimate space to connect with their audience and the expanding Brooklyn art scene.
Art can be a catalyst for bringing together communities and inciting conversations of change and development. Bishop wants to be the venue, where the ideas that bring about change happens.
