Many of the galleries will stay open late (from 6-9pm) and the WG News will be dedicating a full page for a map of the tour that guests will be able to carry from gallery to gallery. Hyperallergicwill also be sponsoring the event. Its going to be a lot of fun, similar to Williamsburg 2:nd Fridays and Beat Nite in Bushwick. Greenpoint’s “art scene” needs this!
I am writing to ask you for information and for participation.
* If you are an artist/art organization/curator in the area and have a show that will be up during that time, then you can be on the map. (or you can organize one ASAP!)
* If you are a local business (cafe, bar, store, etc) in the area and you will be featuring artwork and want to stay open late that night, then you can be on the map.
* AFTER PARTY!!! We need an afterparty location in Greenpoint. If you would like to host, let me know!
The more neighborhood participation, the bigger and more fun the event will be.
It is FREE to participate, all you have to do is send me the following ASAP:
Name of Gallery/Business/Art Organization:
Name of Show:
Artist(s) in Show:
Date Show Will Be Running:

I am sorry for the last minute nature of this request. The event is a month away but in order to get everything into print, I need information very soon. If you can’t get me information right away but still want to participate I may be able to still include you on the map and I will be updating the website after the map is in print.
This will be the first of many Greenpointers Gallery Tours, so stay tuned…
