In the DUMBO arts area of Brooklyn at 111 Front Street you will find 
The Stephen Romano Gallery spaces. Romano is passionate about art that comes 
from a dark perspective, pieces often originating from magical 
thinking with elements that embody diabolical, grotesque and horrific 
modes of expression. Currently he has three artists in his main space.

Manhattan to DUMBO, going there gives me an excuse to visit a very cool neighborhood that is

A Strange Scene of Star Cats and Astronomy          
by Allison Meier 
From a new space in Dumbo’s 111 Front Street building, Stephen Romano Gallery is offering a unique 
mix of art that’s contemporary, historic, and unapologetically strange. The second exhibition, 
Mysterium Cosmographicum, takes the cosmos as its theme, from the mysteries of outer space to the 
divine impressions given off by distant stars.
 
WILLIAM MORTENSEN - " A close friend of Manly P. Hall's and a colleague of Cecil B. DeMille and other 
LA para-normals, he sought to create his own odd world: a place where sexuality and horror, pleasure 
and peculiarity were uneasily beautiful bedfellows."

"A PICTORIAL COMPENDIUM OF WITCHCRAFT" BY WILLIAM MORTENSEN
EROTICA // Thursday, 03 Jul 2014
 
 
布鲁克林DUMBO正在举办“Mysterium Cosmographicum”艺术展
 
 
 
 
Charles Dellschau’s work was in large part a record of the activities of the Sonora Aero Club, of which he 
was a purported member. Dellschau’s writings describe the club as a secret group of flight enthusiasts who 
met in Sonora, California in the mid-19th century.

DUMBO’S BEST KEPT LITTLE SECRET
Stephen Romano Gallery lies nestled in an unsuspecting enclave, sandwiched amongst a 
conglomerate of galleries, at 111 Front Street. DUMBO galleries years ago were rumored to harbor 
the work of hobbyists or the non-professional dabblers– mere rumors. 
 
 
Mysterium Cosmographicum induces a powerful collective transcendence. The three-room space 
is transformed by spellbinding 
creative voices and riveting ideas. I can’t remember the last time I saw a group show this imaginatively 
curated (by owner Stephen Romano).
 
Stephen Romano, one of the galleries in my office building in DUMBO, Brooklyn, has an 
exhibition that I simply do not have the vocabulary to describe. It is fascinating and bizarre.

Goodreads Voice: Charles A.A. Dellschau
Brightly colored balloons festoon the pages of Charles A.A. Dellschau's ornate manuscripts—a hefty collection 
of thousands of drawings and press clippings that herald the advent of flight and echo the ingenious imagination 
of Leonardo da Vinci. The work of this iconoclastic Texan, a butcher by trade who started his creative project 
in his retirement in 1899 and continued until his death in 1923, is presented in the new book, Charles A.A. Dellschau.
