BGI Gallery Opening: Kathryn Robinson-Millen

BGI announces the launch of the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative Gallery, a quarterly series of art openings and shows featuring artists that live or work in neighborhoods along the route of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway.

The first show runs from March 25 through June 25, 2012 and features the ceramic arts of Kathryn Robinson-Millen. Kathryn studied ceramics in England and has worked and exhibited both there and in New York where she now lives. Her inspiration comes from observing and drawing natural and man-made forms such as rocks, pebbles, plants, earthworks and stone monoliths. She transfers the strong lines and textures to clay, working with porcelain, white earthenware, stoneware and terra cotta combined with slips, oxides, sgrafitto and glazes. The finished pieces can be functional or purely sculptural, organic and architectural, ranging from bold and graphic to minimal and serene.

30% of proceeds will be donated by the artist to support BGI’s work. All purchasers will also receive a one-year BGI membership. Event sponsor: Waterfront Wines & Spirits at One Brooklyn Bridge Park.

The show’s opening will be Sunday, March 25th from 1:00PM-7:00PM. For more information or to RSVP: art@brooklyngreenway.org.

BGI is located at 153 Columbia Street, Brooklyn, New York, 11231. Directions: F/G to Bergen or Carroll; B61 to Columbia Street. BGI is open Monday through Friday, 10:00AM-5:00PM or by appointment: 718.522.0193.
