The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition Fall 2016 Gallery Events

BWAC’s Fall Group Art Shows, in a Civil War-era warehouse gallery on Red Hook’s scenic pier, are filled with 25,000sf of art in all mediums, in a wide variety of styles, and in four distinctly different exhibits: 


  • Brooklyn is…. a narrative show of some 200 artists;
  • Art in Clay 4, exhibiting the power of clay to say almost anything;
  • The Really, Really Affordable Art Show, a juried show where really, really great bargains are to be found, and,      
  • Grand Installations – very different and yet all dramatic installations interspersed throughout the 2 floors of gallery space.


There will be concerts in many music genres as well as written word programs:
