The Fowler Arts Collective is an innovative art gallery which is located in Brooklyn, New York and which was created in order to give emerging artists a space to exhibit their collections. The Fowler Arts Collective is primarily used by groups and individuals who find it a difficult, frustrating experience to find a professional space to host their exhibitions.
Although it’s also used as a base for individual artists who need affordable studio space to create their brand new collections.
The Fowler Arts Collective was originally founded in the summer of 2010 and boasts 800 square feet of exhibition space. Better yet the gallery also boasts 18 separate artist studios. The latter of which can be hired out by New York based artists who can’t afford to rent their own private studio.
Although many of the artists who choose to base themselves in the Fowler Arts Collective choose to do so as they love being able to work on their art within a supportive community of like-minded artists. Rather than working alone.
However, each artist who takes up residency at the Fowler Arts Collective still gets to work in a semi-private environment. Which is important as artists sometimes need their space as well as creative inspiration from other artists.
You’ll find the Fowler Arts Collective located in the Greenpoint Terminal Market Building, which is easily located on the East River Waterfront. Which happens to be one of Brooklyn’s creative hubs, which is bursting with creativity and new ideas. The physical address for the collective is 67 West Street, Brooklyn, New York.
Collaborative projects and exhibitions:
In fact, many of the Fowler Arts Collective’s resident artists enjoy working on exciting, collaborative group projects together. While other times the gallery’s resident artists choose to put on group exhibitions, that still manage to showcase and celebrate the uniqueness of each artist’s work.
Why you should go out of your way to visit the Fowler Arts Collective:
One of the key reasons why you should consider going out of your way to visit the Fowler Arts Collective is that, even if you were to visit the gallery several times per year, the artists whose work you’d see displayed would change. Although of course, there are many artists who grow fond of the gallery and choose to stay on and rent a semi-private studio space for an extended period of time.
So if you choose to revisit the gallery, not only are you likely to see work from talented emerging artist’s who you’ve never heard of before, you’ll also come across work from artists whose work you’ve already grown to love.
Another benefit of supporting the gallery is that if you like some of the work which you see, you may be able to get a special piece of work commissioned from your favorite artist!
So if you like the idea of supportive a community of artists who are passionate about creating the best pieces of art which they can create, it’s definitely well worth following the Fowler Arts Collective’s Facebook page in order to be notified of the collective’s upcoming exhibitions and open houses.
