Q & A with Greenpoint Artists

It was like gallery night all over again in Greenpoint, with five art shows opening last Friday. Instead of reviewing each show individually, I decided to play a little game. I asked at least one artist from each show the same question: “What does your work have to do with the title of the show?” They answered in one sentence or phrase.

Here is what they said – in order of my art stroll:

Answer: “Death and how we remember people.”
