Friday’s crisp September evening was just the sort of weather to make touring a gallery night circuit a joy. Cool enough that the warmth and spirit indoors was alluring but bracing enough that heading back out was a relief and an excitement. Which is what was needed when 17 galleries opened as part of Greenpoint Gallery Night. Art was in abundance, of course, but the crowds showed up too, making the traipse a convivial occasion.
Beer and wine were on hand, such that many galleries had their own hand-held signatures: green Genesee cans at Booklyn, red Budweiser at 106 Green Gallery, etc. Artists and patrons mingled; spontaneously, I started a conversation with Ines Sun at Clay Space 1205. Artists can be territorial, she joking said, but she was happy with the way the show came out, a collaborative project with ceramic artist Janine Sopp. I was particularly happy with Anne Eastman’s and Catherine Stack’s work, pieces exploring space, perception, design, and time. But, then again, there was much I didn’t see. Better to bring a bike next time.
