Figureworks is pleased to open this fall season with music! “Art and Music” have always been associated together and this exhibition embraces both.

For this exhibition, a number of artists were asked to take the theme of music and create a figure-based work of art. For some, it was a challenge to take audio to visual and many of these creations became wonderfully conceptual. One can almost hear music in these works. Others used the opportunity to portray a specific musician or instrument that provides inspiration to them while working in their studios.

These contemporary works are now showcased with a number of 20th century works to provide even greater reference to how music plays such an valuable and important role in our lives.

Adding to this exhibition, Figureworks will also host a number of live music venues. Please reference www.figureworks.com as additional performances will be added throughout the exhibition.

Figureworks turns 15 this April and since a traditional anniversary gift is crystal, I selected four notable gallery artists (Ingrid Capozzoli Flinn, Maho Kino, Meridith McNeal, Susan Newmark) to create crystal-inspired artwork. Their creations are truly inspired and collectively make for one of the most joyous and celebratory exhibits to date.

Please join us on Friday, March 27th, from 6-9PM for some amazing art, refreshments and party favors as a thank you to all who have helped foster and support Figureworks these last 15 years.

For one weekend each year, the always popular Gowanus Open Studios 2014 (GOS 2014) invites the public to visit private artist studios, attend opening parties and special events, and enjoy the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn. Last year, GOS 2013 boasted 231 artists opening their studio doors to over 5,000 visitors in Brooklyn’s Gowanus neighborhood. This year, with over 200 artists already registered, GOS 2014 promises to be the largest in its 18-year history. This weekend-long arts event is free and open to the public and is recommended for adults, youths and families.

Arts Gowanus presents Gowanus Open Studios 2014 (GOS 2014) October 17-19, 2014.

Participating artists range in experience from established artists represented by commercial galleries to emerging artists. Visitors to this free event have a unique opportunity to meet Brooklyn artists within the intimacy of their work spaces, purchase art work, attend openings and talks, and experience the world behind closed doors of Gowanus buildings.These work spaces are in former factories, warehouses, and mixed-use commercial buildings.

The official programming of GOS 2014 will be announced soon, including opening parties, public art events, panel discussions, exhibitions, and more. Please email Abby Subak at abby@artsgowanus.org to be put on the mailing list for up-to-date news or to become a sponsor at any level.

Where: The Gowanus neighborhood in Brooklyn is surrounds the renowned Gowanus Canal, and is tucked between Red Hook, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill, Park Slope, and Sunset Park. GOS 2014 includes studios from Court Street in the west to 5th Avenue in the east, and from Dean Street in the north to 18th Street in the south. You can get to Gowanus Open Studios by foot, bike, kayak, bus, LIRR, car and subway (take the F, G or R to 4th Ave/9th Street Station, or the R to Union Street, or the F or G to Bergen or Carroll).
GOS 2014 is presented by Arts Gowanus, a non-profit organization of artists and arts organizations working together to support each other, to connect to our community, and to ensure the Gowanus neighborhood continues to be a thriving and creative community of art-makers and art-appreciators.
