b. j. spoke gallery, incorporated and not-for-profit, is an artist-run gallery of professional artists with a broad diversification of styles and media.
April 1990 marked the inaugural show of two newly merged Long Island cooperative galleries, Northport Galleries and B. J. Spoke Gallery.
Spoke Gallery began in 1976 at a Port Washington site and later moved to neighboring Sea Cliff, New York. In 1980 Northport Galleries was established in Northport and seven years later moved to Huntington, NY.
Because of the ongoing friendship of the two galleries, the idea of a merger was enthusiastically accepted in 1990 by both memberships.
The decision was made to remain in Huntington because of its rich cultural offerings. Architecturally designed, the gallery divides into three areas that allow for a flexible exhibition space. Each exhibit transforms the pace and aura of the gallery.
b. j. spoke gallery has maintained a reputation as a prestigious gallery and has sustained an image of excellence in reviews in New York’s Newsday and The New York Times.
