Actual ‘Wood is a survey of work created by artists both emerging and renowned who have found their way to Ridgewood Queens perhaps the unlikeliest cultural destination yet to bubble up from the NY art diaspora. While Bushwick may be preening for its closeup Ridgewood beckons from backstage with it’s leafy streets and yellow brick facades and seriously multiethnic population. Attracting artists not so much looking for a social scene as for affordable studio space. They’re a committed bunch seizing the opportunity to hunker down and build universes that both cultivate and eschew diplomatic relations with “reality”
