You don’t get more Clinton Hill than Hadas Gallery.

The new space on Myrtle Avenue is founded by neighborhood fixtures and features work by local artists. Heck, the name is even Hebrew for Myrtle.

“I wanted to showcase art being made in the area,” said Joshua Stulman, a recent Pratt University graduate recruited to curate the space by omnipresent rabbi and gallery founder Simcha Weinstein. “Brooklyn is very dense with artists. There’s a great diversity and wealth of styles, mediums and approaches.”

The inaugural show is dedicated to photography, specifically, the abstract work of Richard W. Golden, who finds inspiration in Prospect Park, the Botanic Garden, and Coney Island. A single shoot can result in hundreds photos for a photographer, but Golden never takes more than six.

“If I can’t capture what I see in a half-dozen negatives, then shooting an entire roll probably won’t either,” says the artist.

Future exhibitions at Hadas will include student shows, film screenings and even bands performances.

“It’s a little tiny performance space, but there’s lots of possibilit­ies,” said Stulman. “I really want to center on the arts and what’s here in Brooklyn.”

“Depth/Balance/Surface” at Hadas Gallery (543 Myrtle Ave. between Steuben Street and Emerson Place in Clinton Hill, no phone), Jan. 2-31. Opening reception on Jan. 9 from 2-5 pm. For info, visit
