Make Music New York, Chouffe Fest, Bicycle Fetish Day, – What’s Happening, Greenpoint? (6/18–6/24)

(sponsored) “Just Feel”: Glass Sculptures & Paintings by Katerina Ganchak
Java Studios Gallery (252 Java St, #308) FRIDAY 6/20, 6pm to 9pm, FREE
A series of glass sculptures and paintings, chosen to liberate from explanation, not framing them in such a widely used term as “concept.” “Feel” is an intuitive awareness, a general atmosphere of imagery or situation, and the effect it has on people. Viewers are invited to have their own unique individual experience. Presented pieces build on strong emotional figurative images, which make it possible for every human to relate. More info
