Thursday, August 15th will be a fun night in LIC, with lots of artful happenings all around.
As an artist with work included in the *NOW is the Future* exhibit currently at Local Project, I’ll first point out that this will be the CLOSING NIGHT of the show. So if you haven’t had a chance to see it yet, now’s your chance. There will be a Pot Luck Party for artists & friends from 5pm-7pm, followed by a performance: VITAL MATERIALS, featuring Tina Wang, Luke Mannarino, Oya Damla, Marion Spencer, 7-9pm.
Recently written about in Hyperallergic, Gallery Nights is a great opportunity to experience the art and cultural spaces across LIC in one fell swoop. Here’s a link to the MAP of participating galleries, and full list of shows, below.
