By Paulien Lethen and Heleen Schuttevaêr; design by Céline Bouchez

The book ‘HOLLAND TUNNEL GALLERY Williamsburg Brooklyn Paros Greece’ gives a complete survey from 1997 up to 2015 of the exhibitions and events that took place in the three art spaces of the gallery.

Dutch sisters Paulien Lethen, artist, gallery director/curator and New York resident, and Heleen Schuttevaêr, jazz pianist/vocalist, are the driving forces behind Holland Tunnel Gallery. Together they realized the book. Lethen tells her story of Williamsburg, Brooklyn: how a rough and gritty neighborhood with bad industrial pollution became the colorful New Bohemia when the artists moved in and opened their own galleries, and how it gradually changed into a hip, hot and expensive place to be, a developer’s paradise. With her cheerful inventive book design, graphic designer Céline Bouchez hits the right note to capture the unpretentious, amazing, striking, witty, extraordinary and amazing character of Holland Tunnel Gallery.
