The Williamsburg Art Wok
394 Metropolitan Avenue, The Golden Dragon Kitchen
December 12 - December 13, 2009
Reception: Saturday, December 12, 11 - 8 PM
Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is a neighborhood full of artists, art galleries, studio spaces, and a surprisingly large number of Chinese Take-out Restaurants. On Saturday December 12, 2009 several of these restaurants will provide the backdrop to a one-day exhibition featuring 12 emerging International Artists. The Williamsburg Art Wok borrows the idea of geographical convenience from gallery districts, like New York City’s Lower East Side, and relocates it into an existing group of Take-out Restaurants in Brooklyn . The exhibitions will run concurrently and consist of five different sites with one or two artists exhibiting work at each. The event serves as an alternative to a gallery art walk and provides the artists the opportunity to bring their work directly into the visitor’s daily life.
The Williamsburg Art Wok features work created by several international artists.
