Mr. Amrhein helped foment the Williamsburg art scene of the 1990s with his Pierogi space in 1995. A few galleries from that era survive, largely in Manhattan, but most have long since vanished. Mr. Amhrein remains a neighborhood stalwart, nurturing a wide array of talent. This year also marks the five-year anniversary of the Boiler, the project space he opened for large-scale work in a North Williamsburg boiler room with 35-foot ceilings.
