A pop-up art gallery that has appeared at the Gateway complex since 2012 has found a permanent home at the office complex, it announced Monday.

The Gateway Project signed a lease for 25,000 square feet of space at 2 Gateway Center, it said in a news release, comprising three floors of the building. The space will include 60 rentable artist studios, an artist residency program and a gallery space.

“We are thrilled to be expanding opportunities for artists and creative businesses, not only at a local level, but by opening more doors with connections nationally and internationally, as well,” Rebecca Jampol, co-director of The Gateway Project, said in a prepared statement. “The Gateway Project will be a resourceful arts complex for the city of Newark, comparable to that which one would find in New York City.”

The art space is scheduled to open April 30, featuring a new exhibition, “Color Polemics: Exploring Conversations of Race, Art, and Politics in America.”

The Gateway Project received support from building owner C&K Properties, it added.

“The Gateway Project has invigorated previously empty, underutilized space in the heart of downtown Newark,” Jasmine Wahi, co-director of The Gateway Project, said in a statement. “The gallery and studios will play an important role in helping to continue moving forward the renaissance happening here in Newark.”

CBRE’s Dudley Ryan, exclusive leasing agent for 2 Gateway, brokered the deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.
