Brooklyn Working Artist Coalition’s "Pier Show 11 Carnival" opens in Red Hook May 10 (noon to 6 pm) with a reception featuring music by Lovebutton, refreshments and the opportunity to view the diverse artwork of more than 250 artists, including Edward Murr’s "Wendy & Friend" (pictured).

The Pier Show hangs in a historic Civil War-era warehouse, overlooking the Statue of Liberty, at 499 Van Brunt St. at Beard Street. On opening day, a free Con Edison shuttle bus will run between the Smith and Ninth streets F train station and the Pier Show.

On May 17, from noon to 5 pm, the BWAC Pier Show will be augmented by the Red Hook Waterfront Arts Festival, sponsored by Dance Theater Etcetera. The performing arts festival will bring dance, poetry, food, music and entertainment to the waterfront ’hood.

BWAC’s Pier Show is open weekends, from noon to 6 pm, through June 14, when it culminates with a silent auction. Admission is free. For more information, call (718) 596-2507 or visit
