ENGLISH KILLS Three Year Anniversary

James Kalm brings revelers along for the celebration of English Kills three year anniversary. Having been witness to much of this energetic milieu's production since its inception and, taking into consideration the current recession, this milestone is admirable and Kalm congratulates them. As one of the earliest and most ambitious galleries in the MoJo neighborhood (between the Morgan and Jefferson Streets stops on the L line in Brooklyn), English Kills has exhibited work by: Andrew Ohanesian & Tescia Seufferlein, Don Pablo Pedro, Peter Dobill, Lenny Reibstein, Brent Owens, Andrew Hurst, Andy Piedilato, Steve Harding, Holly Faurot & Sarah H. Paulson and others.


The constant flowering of bohemia is not a construct of advertising, nor of the whims of a dozen infamous gallerists. It is the generational engine of youth culture, alive and well, striving at the border of the mainstream, throwing out its various statements while at the same time contributing to a community that has registered a similar creative echo for at least 25 years.

Bushwick is the locus of new creative energies, the same ones that are active in many other parts of Brooklyn, especially its neighboring wards of Williamsburg and Greenpoint. This year saw the emergence of its first official celebration, The Bushwick Biennial, brainchild of NURTUREart gallery director Benjamin Evans, in collaboration with Austin Thomas of Pocket Utopia, Chris Harding of English Kills, and Jill McDermid of Grace Exhibition Space.
