If you’ve been wishing that you could see
the works at 10 DUMBO art galleries in just two hours, Two Trees
Management has a plan for you.
While DUMBO does have its annual, weekend-long celebration of performing and visual arts, the DUMBO Art Center’s "Art Under the Bridge Festival," each fall, this month’s bite-size gallery tour is another welcome event to lure fine arts aficionados back to the neighborhood nestled around the Manhattan Bridge overpass.
On March 31, the galleries at 111 Front St. at Washington Street will throw open their doors from 6 pm to 8 pm, so visitors can participate in the "Gallery Hop."
Among the works on display will be photographs by Manuel Geerinck at 5+5 Gallery (pictured); as well as works inspired by that other artist-rich neighborhood, Williamsburg, at Safe-T-Gallery; paintings by Andre Martinez at Henry Gregg Gallery; photographs by Richard Avedon at Howard Schickler Fine Art and more.
Two Trees, which is hosting the tour, is one of the largest property owners in DUMBO and landlord to all of the galleries on the tour (also to The Brooklyn Papers).
The reception will be catered by DUMBO’s own Bubby’s and Rice restaurants, with wines from Mionetto and tea from Ito En.
