Kentler International Drawing Space, founded by two artists as a non-profit space in 1990, has given New York exposure to over 1000 artists from around the country and around the world. Kentler presents shows of contemporary drawings and work on paper by emerging and under-recognized local, national and international artists and works energetically and creatively to integrate these shows into the cultural fabric of the community. We encourage dialogue and interaction between exhibiting artists and the public while providing artists with the opportunity to experiment, explore and expand the definition of art in society.

Your support makes a difference.

Falconworks & Other Friends on TV

Via McBrooklyn:

Brooklyn Independent Television’s Neighborhood Beat visits Red Hook on Thursday, February 4, at 8:30pm

Neighborhood Beat is a great show that checks out a lot of the under-the-radar highlights in neighborhoods across the borough.  Looks like for this episode they’ve got old DTE friends Falconworks, the Kentler Gallery, plus Hope & Anchor and one unfamiliar name, Marsha Trattner.  Apparently Ms. Trattner is going to show us  the old art of blacksmithing, which I can tell you from my experience in the fourth grade- very cool.

Check it out tomorrow night on Brooklyn Independent TV (link for which channel that means for you).

November @ Kentler

Got an email update yesterday from the Kentler International Drawing Space, right up the way from us on Van Brunt Street.

13Besides their current gallery show, “What’s the Big Idea,” (which runs through December 13 with work from artists Bill Fick, Jiri Kornatovsky, Simon Lewandowski, Lucia Minervini, Orlando Richards, and Joel Sokolov) Kentler has a number of events coming up.

This Friday, November 13th (spooky), sees a “live audiovisual set” enter the space entitled  “Dream Spaces.”  The next day begins a series of Saturday morning “Drawing Together” art workshops for children ages 4 & up and parents.  Check out Kentler’s website for details.

2 Weeks to See Joel Sokolov & Hugh Williams @ Kentler Int’l Drawing Space

Kentler Inernational Drawing Space’s current exhibition run until March 22- leaving you two weekends to see the work of these two solo artists.  Like all (most? all?) exhibits at Kentler, the show is FREE.  For details visit the Kentler website.
