Greenpoint Gallery Night returns to North Brooklyn this Friday. The neighborhood galleries will be open late on September 18, from 7 to 10pm. The evening will conclude with an afterparty at Broken Land (105 Franklin Street), starting at 10pm.
The Greenpoint area of Brooklyn has a growing and varied community of artists, galleries, collectives, and small businesses. In order to bring more attention and cohesion to this unique part of the borough, Scott Chasse of Calico Gallery and Lia Post of Fowler Arts voluntarily began organizing Greenpoint Gallery Night (GGN) in 2013. Currently, GGN is being organized by Chasse and Owen Houhoulis of Owen James Gallery — still completely a volunteer effort.
Hyperallergic is proud to be the media sponsor.
