Gowanus in Gowanus: Art Reception
Littlefield, which is located in Gowanus, Brooklyn, presents a group show of various artists' takes on the surrounding streets. "Gowanus in Gowanus" features 12 artists who capture the light and shadow of the neighborhood.  They explore their impressions of the aspects which make this area unique: the roads, bridges and buildings, graffiti, the iconic Kentile Floors sign, the elevated F train, water towers, as well as the canal that gives the area its name. The artwork's styles range between tight renderings, sparse line drawings, and expressive impressions of streets.

The artists showing are: Warren Beishir, Jeff Bellerose, Derek Buckner, Jeff Faerber, Laura Fantini, Lenio Grohmann, Chris Leib, Levan Mindiashvili, Daniel Ochoa, Jo Pendola, Fedele Spadafora, and Bob Weiss.

The show was curated by Jeff Faerber.
