If, like me, you’d rather avoid opening nights and gallery hops around Chelsea, you might gloss over Greenpoint Gallery Night. But that would be a mistake, since art-seeing in Greenpoint is a whole different animal. For starters, there are fewer galleries and less people (this is a good thing). The organizers, who have been putting on this biannual event since 2013, also outline your route for you: this spring, there are 11 participating art spaces extending their hours late, with several launching exhibitions for the occasion.

Some highlights this Friday, April 28, include Sal Muñoz’s “temple to social justice” at Auxiliary Projects, which will be filled with Mexican votive imagery; Alison Owen’s installation at Greenpoint Hill, where she’s accumulated scraps and found materials from her studio; and paintings by James Ulmer at Greenpoint Terminal Gallery depicting body builders and other manly men in not-so-manly ways.

When: Friday, April 28, 6–9pm
Where: Locations throughout Greenpoint, Brooklyn
