Alongside regularly scheduled programming at the L Magazine this week, we have some Christmas art shopping that even artists can afford. A sample:
BLACK FRIDAY, November 23rd
Opening: Art in Boxes 2012, About Glamour Gallery
Don’t feel much like sinking precious time and money into Amazon this holiday season? Then get something handmade while supporting the local arts community by stopping by “Art in Boxes” exhibition at Williamsburg’s About Glamour Gallery.
And if you like the idea but want to shop around, check out local community supported art projects like CSA Philadelphia and the new Auxiliary Projects gallery in Bushwick.
Noon- 8PM, 107A North 3rd Street, Williamsburg. Open 7 days a week.
Show: Hot Potato, New York City (gallery)
Ben Gocker fans like myself won’t miss his current show which opened yesterday at the gallery New York City. Williamsburg natives may remember seeing his sprawling sand table tableau at this spring’s Seven Art Fair at the Boiler.
Since then, he’s also published a short novel The Pisces, which, from the first chapter, sounds like a Vonnegutesque basketball story, populated by characters like “Dr. Cram,” “Baby Moki Boki,” and “Alexander ‘Spaghetti’ Zanzibar.” Definitely an anomaly.
Open this week Mon-Weds 6-8 PM. 83 Bowery, 2nd floor
