Calling All Crown Heights Artists

("Crow Hill, Brooklyn" by Charles Lewis Fussell, Oil on Canvas, 1890, Schwarz Gallery, Philadelphia)

You don't have to paint the Crow Hill landscape, as 19th century American painter Charles Lewis Fussell did (here's another of his Crown Heights works), to enter your work in the inaugural Breukelen Coffee House Art Show, but it definitely helps if you're working locally and your creations consider the borough in some way. Franklin Avenue artist Candice Chetta is curating, and you can find submission information on her website and Craigslist. The opening will take place on Friday, February 5th at 8PM, and the BCH plans to host regular shows on a 3-month rotation, joining the FP Reading Series (January event info up now) on the the Franklin Avenue cultural calendar.

In other Avenue art news, Five Myles has the work of Haitian artist Engles on show through January 10th.
