Proteus Gowanus is an interdisciplinary gallery and reading room housed in a former 1900 box factory located centrally among several vibrant Brooklyn communities. Exhibits of art, artifacts and books organized around a yearlong theme are exhibited.
Founded in 1990 in the burgeoning arts community of Red Hook, Brooklyn, this gallery, located in what was once a men's haberdashery store, has monthly and bi-monthly exhibitions of drawings and works on paper by New York and international artists.
By juxtaposing the artwork of one artist with another the gallery creates its own aesthetic, philosophies and theories, focusing on the idea of defining equilibrium or lack thereof. SUGAR is not interested in solo exhibitions, nor focusing on one certain medium. SUGAR is about exploring the nature of art and the artist.
ABC No Rio mounts seven to ten exhibitions a year at its Rivington Street gallery. Its Saturday Matinee features independent punk and hardcore music artists. Their Sunday afternoon open poetry readings have become a regular gathering, and their Sunday evening series of experimental and improvisational music presents electric, acoustic and jazz.
Works by 20th-century artists from Africa, Asia and Latin America, as well as American descendants from those regions, form the basis of the collection. Exhibitions and programs offer Bronx residents the opportunity to learn about themselves and their heritage, history and culture while gaining insight into other cultural groups.
