December 5th, 2008 · No Comments

Want to see and/or buy some art highlighting the cityscape? Well, the Gowanus Canal Conservancy’s Holiday Art Show and Sale called “Gowanus: A Sense of Place” is “an homage to the cityscape highlighting the work of 16 local artists. The Opening Artists’ Reception is today (12/5) at 298 Bond Street (between Union and Sackett) from 6:00pm to 8:30pm. There’s wine and cheese and many of the artists will be on hand. Per an email:

More than 125 oil paintings, watercolors, photographs and other media will be on sale, with an emphasis on smaller works, and nearly all priced between $150 and $1000. The works on the walls will reflect the streets and bridges and buildings for several miles around, in the neighborhoods of Park Slope, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill, Red Hook, as well as Gowanus itself, including a 1972 painting by acclaimed Gowanus artist, Eddie Earl Cato, which will be on loan to the Conservancy for this show. Sales from the show will be used to benefit the not-for-profit Conservancy’s programs. The show and sale will be open regularly after that, on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 7pm, on Thursdays 3pm to 8pm, and Fridays 3pm to 6pm. The show closes on Monday, December 22, with a “Final Sale Day” from 11am to 7pm.

That’s the gorgeous Cato work above.
