Union Sushi & Steak is pleased to welcome the Upper East Side's UEast75 Gallery for a pop-up exhibition. Musing and Mastering: The Ordinary will feature work from six world-renowned Latin and American artists with the creative director coming from curator Alysha Marko, as well as Juan Lazaro, Renelio Marin, Rodrigo Pedrosa, Lane Rudder, and Carlos Vega. Community members are invited to view the pieces from Thursday, December 10 through Monday, January 18. The restaurant will be transformed into a one-of-a-kind experience. Enjoy food and art - what more could you want?

"As this year descends ever so bittersweetly, we can all agree it has been one that has been far from The Ordinary. We have all been forced to some degree to experience what we have right in front of us much clearer. Artists have done it for centuries -- being stuck inside their mental and physical spaces, giving birth to works, beckoning the word ordinary to [come to light]. These moments are expanded here [in this moment]. We thank these artists for each of their unique imaginations within this subject," Alysha Marko, owner of UEast75 Gallery, shared.

If there is a piece that particularly catches your eye, you're in luck! Work from Musing and Mastering: The Ordinary will be for sale and a portion of the proceeds will benefit NORD (National Organization of Rare Diseases). Pieces will range from $400 to $18,000. Now is the perfect time to invest in a piece of art that will also benefit an incredible organization.

"I'm thrilled. A lot of my clients who have second homes in the Hamptons haven't been able to see my new work because they haven't been coming into the city as much lately," Marko said. "This new location is what I've wanted for a long time. The gallery in NYC, which is street level on 75th Street off Madison, has seen much less foot traffic and walk-ins lately. Now, I'm just thrilled because this is the perfect market to have a pop-up gallery in Southampton."

Co-Owner of Union Sushi & Steak, Ian Duke, is longtime friends with curator Alysha Marko. "Ultimately, Alysha and I saw an opportunity for us to work together, which we haven't had the chance to do before, nor has it ever been done at the restaurant. There are a number of people out in the East End who can't go in or won't go into Manhattan to visit galleries, so we thought this would be a great opportunity to bring the gallery to them. Plus, we thought this would create a very unique environment for people to experience art as well as a unique dining experience," reflected Duke.

Union Sushi & Steak is located at 40 Bowden Square in Southampton. For more information, visit www.dineatunion.com or ueast75.gallery.
