Preview: Succulent Studios
Succulent Studios is a brand new massive space located in Greenpoint. The gallery is the brain child of artist Sek3 with logistical support from Daniel Weintraub.
The room features a 3,000 square foot open plan with huge ceilings, exposed wooden trusses and ample skylights. They will be officially opening their doors to the public with a stacked lineup of more than 30 artists for their inaugural show on Saturday night. Rather than pick a theme and try to make the contributors comply with a set guideline, they are trying leave the pieces open to the artists.
The show opens at 6:30 and lasts well into the night with an listed closing time of 1am. Free drinks will be distributed so this looks like it has the potential to turn into a memorable night. Apart from hosting monthly gallery openings, the space will also have drawing parties and other events.
