A series of conversation-based, contemporary art exhibitions, G-Train Salon kicks off on Saturday, February 28 at 7pm in the historic clock tower building on Atlantic Avenue. Organized by a Queens-based salonière, this nomadic salon will debut in a Brooklyn living room before making its way to other homes, bookstores and cafes throughout the borough. The first installment, Inauguration, features 4 emerging photographers--Christine Dierk, Laura Hamilton, Raquel Lauren and Casey Noel--whose work commemorates the new on the heels of our nation’s most celebrated inaugural event. In the spirit of the more democratic salons--not unlike those of revered Modernist expatriate, Gertrude Stein--art lovers, skeptics and curious newcomers alike will be encouraged to view and discuss the works exhibited. Emerging artists will also have the rare opportunity to speak thoroughly about their work, thus minimizing the distance typically separating an art object on display and its maker.
Two of the 4 participating artists will speak on Saturday, February 28 and Saturday, March 7. Due to space constraints, we ask that you make a reservation to confirm/cancel your reservation: Gtrainsalon@gmail.com.
