005:Brooklyn Cartoonists and Illustrators at KAVE

September 30, 2016-December 31, 2016, All Day

Hosted by Kave Espresso Bar (inside the LOOM) at Kave Espresso Bar

It’s been said that Brooklyn is the heart of today’s NYC art scene and the borough’s fashionability has been the source of no small amount of commentary, debate, jest and outright derision.

It’s often the artists themselves that have the most to say, not just about Brooklyn, but about New York in general and the complexities of contemporary urban life.

This exhibit showcases a sampling of artists using the media of cartooning and illustration to comment on their own experiences.  From the rapid fire humor of Jeremy Nguyen’s Stranger than Bushwick comics, to Tony Wolf’s soulful reflections on a neighborhood’s change over time in his Greenpoint of View series,  the work in this show presents a varied assortment of reflections on city life.

A brief but important note:  it would be impossible in a show this size (or even a much larger one) to encompass the variety of talent, working methods, opinions and beliefs of all the artists whose work comprises the diverse Brooklyn cartooning and illustration community.   This show captures the work of a group of peers gratefully occupying a small corner of this mind-blowingly large and energetic scene.

hosted at Kave Espresso Bar inside the LOOM, all things coffee, baked goods, sandwiches and good vibes will be served daily 8am-8pm.  www.kavebrooklyn.com
