Lucky Gallery Reopening

5"x5" @ $5

Lucky Gallery will re-open on May 30, and to commemorate this event, Lucky Gallery, in conjunction with the Red Hook, Carrol Gardens Open Studio Tour, will present an exhibition of works by Laura Arena, Brooklyn- based artist and director of Lucky Gallery.

Exhibition Dates: May 30- June 30, 2009
Gallery Hours: Sat/Sun 1-6 and by appt. only
Open House: Saturday May 30, 6-9 PM

The exhibition, called 5”x5” @ $5, will run from May 30- June 30 and will feature photos taken by Laura with her plastic camera of locations near and far.

“My unconventional style of documenting my adventures often relies on pure luck,” says Arena.

“My plastic camera with no flash or focusing lens often feels like I am not taking photos at all. Light leaks, double exposures, vignetting and odd color renditions make the photos special, unpredictable and unique, much like my personality and my new endeavor reopening Lucky Gallery.”

All Laura’s artwork featured in the exhibition is 5”x5” and will be sold for $5. Artwork will be hung with wire and clips in such a manner that all visitors can interact with the work and freely rearrange how and where they are displayed. Laura will replenish the work as it is sold over the month, creating an ever-changing environment.

Lucky Gallery is located in Red Hook, 176 Richards Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231
