Brooklynite Gallery Opening: Remed & Zbiok


Last night I got out to an opening at the Brooklynite Gallery, a new art space just around the corner from our place.

The event was a nice gathering of the arts folks and some folks from the neighborhood I've seen through the years but never known. I also ran into Luna Park, for the second weekend in a row.

I've passed the gallery over nd over since it opened last year, but hadn't been in. From the outside, the space looks to be all of 10 feet deep, but I discovered that there is much more room, including a full backyard full of art on display.

I'm not certain how that space is used during inclement weather like today's snow, but I hope to get another look at it one way or the other when there is less of a crowd there.

I was initially concerned about the idea of a gallery opening p in the neighborhood - and to be sure, the vast majority of people at the opening were clearly not from the neighborhood - but having actually seen the space and learned a little more about it, I'm happy to have a real art space so close to home.

If nothing else, I appreciate that the artists have started using some of the abandoned storefronts in the area as a canvas, leaving one less eyesore to pass on the way to work.
