Nudity is a theme no stranger to the artist. As Greenpoint Terminal Gallery states, “The nude is our most essentialized form. It is us at our most vulnerable, without emblematic costume signifying class, culture, or personality. In our nakedness, we lose signifiers of our hierarchies and become our animal selves — natural, innocent, without pretense.”
To see such art on full display, visit the gallery on 67 West Street (Suite 320) from September 7–15 and October 6–20 to experience SKINS, the gallery’s latest exhibit. SKINS is, per the gallery, “a celebration of the body, in its pure, natural vulnerability and beauty. It is also a reminder that we are always both separate and whole.”
An opening reception will be held this Friday from 7–10 PM. For a full roster of participating local artists, see below!

Greenpoint Terminal Gallery is pleased to present a group show evocative of the season, including work from five artists – Caroline Larsen, Christian Little, Jack Henry, Sarah Weber and Sarah Zapata. Entitled Toxic Gardens, the exhibition embodies traits of a secret garden—a space that is secluded, paradisiacal, entangled in foliage—abundant in layers and depth. The artists in the show are united by an interest to intermix materials and subjects not traditionally tied. Continue reading →

Last Friday marked the 18th Greenpoint Gallery Night, hosted by Scott Chasse (Calico) and Owen Houhoulis (Owen James Gallery) who voluntarily organized this informal directory of art spaces and organizations.

Here’s a short recap of the work I was able to see. Hope to see you at the next one! Continue reading →

Even though this past Friday brought more (unwanted, unexpected) flurries and cold, gallery owners took the storm in stride and kept their doors open late for Greenpoint Gallery Night. And for a good cause—the brave locals came in crowds, saw the art, and thus conquered the last snow of the the winter season. Check out our Instagram recap! Continue reading →
