"To Brooklyn" Gallery Show Features Williamsburg & Greenpoint


We don't feature tons of art shows, largely because there's only so much we can focus on, but this show of Eric Lindquist's work, sample above, caught our eye thanks the work above featuring Northside Piers and 184 Kent. The work is on display at the McCaig-Welles gallery starting tomorrow (3/8), with an opening reception on Friday, March 9, from 7:00PM-9:00PM. The space is at 129 Roebling Street, Suite B. The work is described on ARTCAL as evoking:
Brooklyn's industrial past and future residential growth. The exhibition documents specific sites of building and decay in the present Williamsburg waterfront and surrounding areas of Greenpoint, where construction cranes, glass and concrete structures rapidly supplant dilapidated warehouses and beaches of rubble, in anticipation of residential towers and public promenades. These paintings and drawings seek to document the transformations through a subdued palette, balancing graphic sensibility with painterly animation. Lindquist's work explores landscape as a memorial.
Looks like fun.
