For 30 years, BWAC has been exhibiting the artwork of local Brooklyn artists. Our three annual mega-exhibits and outdoor sculpture show present a wide variety of contemporary visual arts from the traditional to the experiemental cutting edge.
BWAC’s 25,000 square foot gallery is in a Civil War-era warehouse on the Red Hook waterfront. The vista of New York Harbor, spanning the Statue of Liberty to the Verrazano Bridge is one of the best in the city. Our 18,000 annual visitors also enjoy the nearby restaurants, bars, IKEA and Fairway Market. With every medium and style of artwork represented, as well as the UnPlugged in Red Hook free weekly music performances and Saturday afternoon Screening Room programs, our shows are as spectacular as the setting.
Our festival will share links.
