Opening May 15th, “We’re Still Here…” an outdoor portraiture exhibition with Arts Gowanus features portraits created by and depicting local Brooklyn residents.
After over a year of struggles during COVID, this exhibition is meant to celebrate the resilience, strength, and diversity of our amazing Brooklyn community. This project is in collaboration with The Old Stone House and is part of the Arts Gowanus Gallery Dispersed initiative partially funded by the Brooklyn Arts Council.
This exhibition will feature over 100 images of artwork from local Brooklyn artists printed on banners which will be exhibited on the fence surrounding J.J. Byrne Playground from May 15 – June 25.
In addition to the outdoor show, this exhibition will also take place online, the original version of each work will be available for sale on the Arts Gowanus online Artsy gallery.
On May 15, we will also be hosting Arts Gowanus’ first Creative Outdoor Bazaar, Cook Out the Vote, and the opening of our indoor exhibition “Nature Contained” featuring works by members of the Gowanus Swim Society.
