Your Guide to Greenpoint Gallery Night (Friday, 4/20)


Greenpoint Gallery Night is back! From 6-9pm this Friday (April 20th), more than ten local art galleries and art-friendly spaces will open up their doors for a special evening affair. Spaces will be open to the public (for free) for folks to browse interesting local artwork, check out their unique spaces, and usually a lot of them have wine and snacks too. You should try to hit as many of these awesome spaces as you can, but some highlights include:

Real Estate, a combination gallery and real estate office is showing Hyper Opulence, large-scale metallic mixed media paintings by artist Rosalind Tallmadge. (1144 Manhattan Ave)
• Greenpoint Hill, which consistently shows unique sculpture artists and is opening Naturalized, an exhibition of new works by artist Carol Joo Lee—brightly-hued sculptural compositions incorporating symbols from immigrant communities. (100 Freeman St)
Dusty Rose Vintage is a vintage clothing warehouse that consistently draws crowds from all over Brooklyn for their unique art events. For Gallery Night they’ll be throwing their 3rd annual 4/20 Pop-Up, with smoking vessels, rolling dishes, munchies and art by Haute Chocolate, Caitlin Rose Sweet, Most Recklessly, Lylynn Pham; tarot readings by Anna Toonk, and live screen printing with Kingsland Printing, and the work of photographer Jordan Tiberio will be on display. (251 Greenpoint Ave)
• Areté, a unique indoor/outdoor space opened at 67 West Street last year. For Greenpoint Gallery Night they’ll be playing host to musical performances until 10pm, including Healing Music for a Troubled World from 8-9pm, where you can expect both experimental noise/jazz music and performance art. (67 West St, #103)
• Calico, Greenpoint’s sweetest little gallery, is opening Surfaces, a show of 5 artists curated by Owen James, who had his namesake gallery in the Pencil Factory building for many years and late last year moved it to Manhattan. Expect to see a range of collage, ceramics, encaustic, sculpture, printmaking and painting. (67 West Street, #203)
