Summer Starts in Brooklyn

Denise Treizman The advent of summer in Brooklyn, though marked by welcome warmer climes and gentler denizen outlooks, is marked also and perhaps more importantly by the return of Bushwick Open Studios, now in its 9th consecutive year. BOS is one of the largest arts events of it's kind, spanning 3 days (June 5-7th, 2015) and touting well over 500 participating artists, gallery shows, performances and additional activities. Details of participating artists including studio locations, artwork images, and maps can be found on-line while printed maps will be available at designated HUB locations throughout the area including Norte Maar, Panoply, Cobra Club, The Buggy Factory, Outlet, and many more! The BOS Launch Party will be held on Fri June 5th at Be Electric Studios (1298 Willoughby Ave) and will feature "Seeking Space", an open-call group show of local and international talent, with artists numbering nearly 60 in total! There will also be a community day on Saturday June 6th at Maria Hernandez Park(Knickerbocker Ave. and Starr St.) that will feature family-friendly activities including performance art, yoga, dance, theater and more and the weekend will conclude with a party and film showcase on Sunday June 7th at The Bushwick Community Darkroom (110 Troutman St.). Though far too numerous to mention; a few artists whose studios I'd like to see during the event include Jaynie Crimmins (119 Ingraham St.) who makes bio-morphic urchin and pod like sculptures out of shredded and re-purposed mail, Cibele Viera, also at that address who creates eerie photographs employing child-like play-doh and literal impressions of simulated crash scenes, and Rachel Phillips (791 Bushwick Ave) who paints surreal, figurative compositions with a Gorky and Bacon-like sensibility. Her studio location is also home to The Parlour Bushwick Gallery, which she co-directs with Chuck Tisa and Janice Sloan. Sarah G. Sharp (395 Johnson Avenue) is making smart work combining modulated materials, including thread and vintage magazines, with personal and national historical anecdotes that are impossible to forget while Alexandra Rubinstein(910 Grand St) creates figurative paintings that are, by turns, erotic, political, powerful and playful. One gallery show you don't want to miss during BOS weekend is "Victory Over the Sun" at Odetta Gallery (229 Cook St.), which will feature works on square and circular shape by esteemed artists Mary Judge and Gilbert Hsiao. This show marks Odetta's 1 year anniversary and if you haven't yet made it to the space, this is the show to get you there! This weekend holds too much greatness to try and capture it all! Grab a BOS2015 map and discover for yourself!

Happening simultaneously to BOS is The NEWD Art Show (592 Johnson Avenue) which operates as a sort of alt-art fair, showcasing 11 galleries/art spaces including local faves Regina Rex, Sardine, Nurture Art, Signal and Fresh Window.



Robert Swain Lastly, congratulations and kudos must go out to several art spaces that have re-located or are expanding into their own storefront spaces in the Dumbo area. First is Minus Space (16 Main St) that christened their new space with a solo show of paintings by Robert Swain. Minus Space now enjoys a 1,600 square foot home in a storefront building once occupied by Galapagos Art Space. Klompching Gallery, a contemporary photography gallery will open nearby at 89 Water Street and other galleries on the move include A.I.R. Gallery, United Photo Industries, and Masters Projects.
