This weekend, June 6th and 7th, is the sixth annual Atlantic Avenue ArtWalk.
ArtWalk is a self-guided tour of open artist studios and area exhibitions, a range of public art projects, special events, with local merchants hosting a range of artwork and events. ArtWalk provides a relaxed setting for dialogue, collecting, and for artists to discuss current bodies of work, while offering viewers a glimpse into the creation process.
ArtWalk includes artists across all media, participatory events, film, public art, live music, and activities for families and children of all ages. Visitors can enjoy exhibits, view and buy work, meet the artists and sample the Avenue's restaurants, shops and bars at their own pace. To add to the weekend festivities, local businesses host receptions while area restaurants and bars offer special rates to ArtWalkers throughout the weekend.

Take a short, self-guided tour of the ArtWalk area "curated" by Sasha of Proteus Gowanus; Ouigi of The Brooklyn Circus; Brooklyn historian, Erik Fortmeyer and fine artists Chris Piazza and Mac Premo.
