COBBLE HILL — An art gallery is celebrating the holidays with an "affordable" art fair and eight days of multimedia programs.
Recession Art, at 47 Bergen St., is in the middle of hosting "Salonukah," an eight-day celebration of video screenings, readings from spoken-word artists and performances by Sindy Blutz and Jody Wood.
While the event began last Friday, there are still five days of programming left, including a Cyber Monday-themed video screening.
“Every night would be dedicated to a different kind of art,” Emma Katz, the gallery's executive director, said of the idea behind the festival.
Recession Art, which aims to be an affordable alternative to the traditional art market for rising artists and aspiring collectors, is also hosting a monthlong exhibit featuring about 200 pieces of art, turning the gallery into a floor-to-ceiling “art salon,” Katz said.
Wall hangings — including drawings, paintings, collages and prints — are on display and priced from $10 to $6,000, selling for $400 on average, said Katz. The salon will offer “artwork for anyone’s taste and anyone’s budget,” she said.
The exhibition will continue through the end of December, but the eighth day of Salonukah, on Dec. 6, will end with a closing party and a trash-art Menorah, according to Recession Art.
