GALLERY NIGHTS, OCTOBER 17th, 2019
Get ready for Halloween at the Plaxall Gallery with a chilling exhibition exploring the cycles of life and death and have fun creating extravagant decorations at Materials for the Arts, using non-traditional art supplies and reusable materials. Get lost in the labyrinthine photo installation created by artist Kate Bubacz at the Factory, visit the professional wood and metal sculpture studio of Joel Voisard and much more!
Please take this opportunity to support the local arts community, every third Thursday of the month. Long Island City Galleries and art venues will open their doors to the public from 6 to 9 p.m. in an after-hours celebration of art and culture.
