Saturday, June 2nd and Sunday June 3rd, 12 – 7 pm,

as part of Bushwick Open Studios 2012, The Outpost will be presenting “ACTUAL ‘WOOD”.

Actual ‘Wood is a survey of work created by artists both emerging and renowned who have found their way to Ridgewood Queens, perhaps the least-likely cultural destination yet to bubble up from the NY art diaspora. While Bushwick may be preening for its closeup, Ridgewood beckons from backstage with itԳ leafy streets and yellow brick faades and seriously multiethnic population. Attracting artists not so much looking for a social scene as for affordable studio space. TheyԲe a committed bunch seizing the opportunity to hunker down and build universes that both cultivate and eschew diplomatic relations with “reality”.

Featuring Ridgewood Artists:
Andrew Sutherland
Moira Williams
Yasue Maitake
Richard Kostelanetz
Bjoern Meyer-Ebrecht
Ellie Murphy
David Frye
