Next stop on the G-Train Salon

A series of intimate, conversation-based exhibitions, the G-Train Salon, made its debut earlier this year in a living room on Atlantic Avenue. In June and July, this nomadic emerging artists’ salon will venture to the Urban Alchemist design collective on Fifth Avenue in Park Slope and WORD Bookstore off the Greenpoint Avenue stop on the G train.

A collaborative effort between a Queens-based salonière and various private and public venues throughout Brooklyn, the G-Train Salon gives emerging artists the rare opportunity to communicate with the general public about their work, thus minimizing the distance typically separating an art object on display from its maker.

Come to a salon-style discussion, June 5 from 7-9 p.m. at Urban Alchemist for Things Left Behind, a fanciful installation of homegrown creations, photographs and mementos by artist Kelly Murphy. On the evening of June 13, the artist will also be on hand to host an interactive craft-making activity related to objects in the exhibition.

Also stay tuned for Hit Factorie’s summer reading exhibition at WORD Bookstore this July.

Kelly Murphy is an incredibly talented artist. She creates amazing art from both unexpected and traditional materials. Everyone should try to attend.
