Street art advertising The Other Art Fair on Franklin Street

The street art doesn’t lie: The Other Art Fair is returning to Brooklyn, popping up May 3–6 at the Brooklyn Expo Center (72 Noble Street) in Greenpoint. This is the third edition of this Other Art Fair, New York’s leading market for a new generation of art buyers that runs biannually in the spring and fall. 130 artists will be featured this spring, and nearly 60% of them are women.

Presented by Saatchi Art, The Other Art Fair showcases talented independent and emerging artists, each hand picked by a committee of art world experts. (Unsurprisingly, the event series has a pretty hot Instagram.) Art lovers can visit the fair with confidence that they are buying from the very best and most promising emerging artists in a unique and immersive experience that Time Out has called, “a festival for discovering mind-blowing work by emerging artists.”

In addition to showcasing the best of new painting, photography, sculpture, and light installations by 130 emerging and unrepresented local and international artists (complete roster here, with the artists’ work priced from $250-$5,000), the fair will be abuzz with provocative programming like local guest DJs to keep things at full throttle; mystery tattoos inked by artist Scott Campbell (whose clients include Robert Downey, Jr. Penelope Cruz, and Sting); portrait sketching by Amber Vittoria; a tutorial on how to invest in art under $1000 with tours led by the Saatchi Art curatorial team; and sustenance from Maman Cafe and the Van Leeuwen Mobile ice cream truck parked out front.
Tattoo artist Scott Campbell will be present at next week’s Fair

Some 30 artists from Brooklyn will showcase their works in person including Jean Louis Frenk, who works in unusual ceramics; Pratt graduate Maria Bouget, who creates in light installations; Arthur Lugauskas, who will debut a 6-canvas-wide New York skyline; and photo collagist Karen Nielsen.

You can enter to win a free tattoo here, and tickets to the Fair itself range from $13.50 to $30 depending on when you go. Full Fair hours are below. Happy touring, art viewing, and art hunting!

Greenpoint This Week: Hummer Crash, Graffiti Rash, Bazaar Liquidation, and More!

A Toyota crashed into the sidewalk on Franklin Street at India Street today

Luckily, only minor injuries were reported today from a car crash on Franklin Street at India Street around 2 p.m.

The same can be said for a crash last weekend on Manhattan Avenue that could have been potentially devastating.

A hummer burst into the front of In and Out Chicken (676 Manhattan Ave.) early Sunday morning, and no injuries were reported as the business was closed and no pedestrians were in the driver’s path.

With only two weeks remaining on Greenpoint Avenue, now’s a good time to say goodbye in person to the Brooklyn Bazaar.

For some more ideas on weekend fun, check out what’s happening, and in the meantime catch up on this week’s headlines:
