Fowler Arts Collective is pleased to present Buy Local, an exhibition featuring new work by Brooklyn and Philadelphia artists Susan Fang, Maria Rajewksi, Samuel Stabler, and Brian Willmont.
These four artists make works that explore subject matter as varied as the magic and melancholy of objects, awkwardness and fleeting moments of failure, vaganuses and octipenises, and the construction of a new American folktale. Buy Local, timed to coincide with New York’s greatest marketplace for contemporary art, The Armory Show, acknowledges that while all of the work in the exhibition has been made with the zeal of an art-for-art mentality, at the end of the day it would be nice to sell something. Taking it’s name from the retail movement, Buy Local aims to showcase exciting new art with the hopes that maybe, just maybe, we’ll at least break even.
Please join us for Buy Local’s opening reception on Saturday, March 10th from 6-9 pm. The opening reception coincides with a neighborhood event, Greenpoint Gallery Night. Many neighborhood galleries and alternative spaces will participate in the festivities. For more information and a map of the neighborhood listing the participating galleries, go to http://thegreenpointers.com/2012/02/27/greenpointers-gallery-tour-31012-6-9pm/
Buy Local will be on view from March 10th to 25th, 2012. During the run of the exhibition, Fowler will have open gallery hours on Saturdays and Sundays from 12pm to 5pm. During other times, the exhibition can be viewed by appointment. Contact us here to make an appointment: http://www.fowlerartsbrooklyn.org/emailform.html
