Two galleries are better than one



Antonio “Nino” Vendome, chairperson of the Vendome Group, above right, with P.J. Charlton restaurateur Phil Mouquinho, recently simultaneously opened two new art galleries in Hudson Square. Studio Vendome is on the ground floor of the Philip Johnson-designed Urban Glass House, at 330 Spring St., a residential project developed by Vendome. Meanwhile, Studio Vendome Projects, is at 30 Grand St., near The James Hotel. The galleries will showcase late-career artists and artist-estate collections deserving greater critical recognition. Vendome is also known for his “Nino’s Restaurant 9/11 Relief Fund,” in which he transformed his family’s Canal St. restaurant into a relief center for first responders and others at the World Trade Center site, serving thousands of free meals to Ground Zero workers for seven months after 9/11.
