A classic bank turned Williamsburg's largest art gallery 9/17/2005

The Williamsburg Art & Historical Center was once the Kings County Savings Bank, built in 1868. For the last decade, it's been a nonprofit gallery, and the building seems to be in perpetual renovation. Don't expect air conditioning in summer or full heat in winter, but do expect an eclectic lineup of shows every six weeks in season. The web site could use some updating, but my understanding is that, after further renovations to the building, shows will resume in January 2006. It's well worth a visit--make sure you look at the medallions on the back wall that honor the artisans who worked on this building, with its unusual Second Empire-style mansard roof.

The Home of the New Surrealist Movement 7/24/2005

The Williamsburg Art and Historical Society is housed in a beautiful historical building on Broadway in Williamsburg, and is the home to some of the finest surrealist work happening right now. Check the website for gallery hours and stop into see the rotating displays of work, or hit the website and take a look through the archives to see who's been there already. And keep an eye out for special events - in the fall of 2003 they hosted the world's biggest surrealist show, complete with a grand surrealist costume ball. Keep an eye on this place and the artists who show here, history will be made. more
