To kick off the second weekend of May – as the Frieze NYC and NADA art fairs bustle away at opposite ends of the East River – over a dozen galleries in the historic neighborhood of Greenpoint, Brooklyn open their doors to art seekers from near and far. Two local gallery directors, Lia Post of Fowler Arts Collective and Scott Chasse of Calico, have organized this event for Friday, May 10th from 6-9pm to shed light on the exceptional galleries and art organizations that call Greenpoint their home.
This free evening art stroll will be the first installment of regular Greenpoint gallery nights to be held throughout the year. Visitors are invited to explore the diverse array of exhibition spaces in the neighborhood which is also home to hundreds of working artists. Art seekers can meander through tree-lined streets, marvel at the amazing views of Manhattan across the East River, and sample local bars, restaurants, and shops as they wander to each participating gallery in this unique part of Brooklyn.
While NYC is sure to be buzzing over the art fairs the same weekend, Greenpoint Gallery Night offers a way for the public to support the home-grown galleries in their own backyard.
Afterparty at CoCo66 from 9pm onward!
