Imagine This

Imagine asking artists, already known for their beyond-the-boundary imaginations, to create something new and cutting-edge, something that takes them out of their comfort zone and into a new dimension of their art. Well that's exactly what the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC) asked their 200+ exhibiting artists to do for their Fall Show, Imagine This. And if it has viewers scratching their heads and asking that enduring question, "What Is Art?" -narrative pieces will accompany the work. If you've ever wondered what an artist was thinking, this might be your opportunity to gain some insight.

And the international juried Smart Device show explores imagination and creativity through the emerging technologies of the smart phones that we carry with us day and night. 200 works will be displayed on large screens.

The Ground Floor gallery will be completely transformed by the dozen giant site specific installations, some with sound or video, some interactive. A separate photography section explores the new directions photography has taken.

Special events are planned for each day of the show, including the Meet the Artists Opening reception with music by Paula Jeanine Bennett & the Imagine This Quartet, and the Eighth Annual Red Hook Film Festival, October 18 - 19.

So stroll through quickly-gentrifying Red Hook; have a lunch on the waterfront, enjoy the dazzling views of the New York harbor and then explore the 25000 square foot Civil War-era warehouse, venue to BWAC's fall show.

Art In Clay II

Art In Clay II: Figuratively Speaking explores ceramics, evolved from their utilitarian roots and reinvented by regional artists as exciting, innovative contemporary art. Juried by Lily Wei, art critic, independent curator and contributing editor of Art News, it is a stunning show of 50+ pieces.

Red Hook International Film & Video Festival

Each year the Red Hook International Film festival gets bigger and bigger. And this year, rumor has it, it will be held upstairs!
