Underwater New York Show at Proteus Gowanus

Newtown Creek 3 by Nate Dorr

Proteus Gowanus Gallery has a show up in conjunction with Underwater New York to conclude their season of curation on the theme of "transport". Lots to look at Proteus Gowanus, they've got galleries within galleries (The Observatory, The Hall of the Gowanus, The Reanimation Library, The reading room), a real gem. It's open Thursdays through Sundays until July 17th when they will close for the rest of the summer.

As per Underwater New York's website:

Transport III with Underwater New York

June 12 – July 17, 2010
Proteus Gowanus

"We like to think of Underwater New York as a creative conduit between artists and a landscape of underwater objects and phenomena, encouraging a new consideration of the waters that surround, splice and serve our city. Extracting directly from the arteries of transportation that have shaped New York since its start, we invite artists to imagine previously unconsidered depths. Some incredible artwork has already come of this exploration, and we’re thrilled to announce an upcoming exhibit of new and existing work in collaboration with Proteus Gowanus.

Proteus Gowanus is an interdisciplinary gallery and reading room located on the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn. A collaborative project, the gallery develops exhibits of art, artifacts and books that revolve around a yearlong theme linking the arts to other disciplines and to the community. Transport, the theme for 2009-2010, is an exploration of How We Get There in the never-ending journey toward our destinations.

On view will be artwork inspired by the city’s underwater landscape, work ranging from paintings to letterpress prints to stories in bottles, from photographs to artist books to installations."
