On Saturday, May 8, the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition unveils its 12th annual Pier Art Show with a reception and a live performance by the band Lovebutton.

Part neighborhood celebration and part treasure trove of emerging Brooklyn artists, the enormous collection of works, displayed in a warehouse on the Red Hook waterfront, is worth a visit whether you’re a collector, an artist in need of inspiration, or an art lover in need of fresh air and wonderful views.

This year’s exhibit spans 20,000 square feet of gallery space and features the works of 300 artists.

In the BWAC Community Outreach Exhibit, the works by patients in the Creative Arts Therapy program - including J. Gonzalez’s painting, "6 am on the J @ 100" (pictured) - will be on display.

The exhibit, open on weekends through June 27 (and Memorial Day, May 31) from noon to 6 pm, also has live music, slide presentations and lectures.
