In celebration of the Armory Show in Manhattan, most Williamsburg galleries will be open until 11pm on Saturday, March 12:
No, not that kind of after-hours. Inspired by the 1,000-watt Armory Show across the river in Manhattan, tonight’s Brooklyn soiree is really a trans-gallery celebration of artists, filtered through the unique sensibility that is Williamsburg. Think of it as a lively promenade through the hip precincts of a robust, artistic community. With over two dozen galleries expected to contribute diverse performances and special events – including a live band at Pierogi, the always idiosyncratic offerings of the Dollhaus, and an Open Ground bash featuring DJ Damone and a talented roster of artists from Berlin – After-Hours provides an eclectic stroll through an epicenter of art that’s no longer merely emerging.

Note: Spike Hill Bar and Grill (184 Bedford Ave, 718.218.9737) houses an information center. Also, various afterparties abound – consult your favorite gallery for information.
