The Storefront Ten Eyck Art Gallery is located in an unsuspecting converted warehouse in industrial Bushwick. Their current show on display, the Making History Exhibition and Arts in Bushwick Benefit offers a one of a kind opportunity to experience an amazing collection of vast and varied artwork from over 400 different local artists. All of the artworks in the show are currently available as prizes in a raffle, to be held May 10th; the proceeds from the raffle of the three week long show will be used to support AiB’s year-round programming and to make a book celebrating arts in Bushwick and the Bushwick Open Studios 10th Anniversary. The book will be published in 2016 and will feature every artist who participated in the show as well as the history of Arts in Bushwick and Bushwick Open Studios.
The Making History Exhibition and Benefit was curated by Krista Saunders and Dexter Wimberly and boasts a truly unique and diverse collection of works; most of which are approximately 12”x12” in size. The impressive collection contains media ranging from abstract as well as realistic painting to sculptural works of fabric, paper, metal, and found objects. Additionally, there is photography, collage, and more, illustrating the truly eclectic population of artists working in the area. To participate in this momentous celebration of Bushwick’s art history and enter into the raffle, tickets can be purchased on the gallery website through the end of the show on May 10 at http://storefrontteneyck.com/. To see this amazing collection of work in person, visit the Storefront Ten Eyck Gallery at 324 Ten Eyck Street in Brooklyn where you can witness history in the making.
