New Black-owned art gallery comes to Downtown Brooklyn
Downtown Brooklyn just got a whole lot brighter with a Black-owned art gallery in the neighborhood.
From portraits to abstract and all things in between, C & K Art Gallery is giving a space to different artists from all backgrounds.
The gallery opened a few months back and already has walls filled with loud, bold pieces that tell stories.
"Art is the world. That's what we want to use art for - to bring everyone together," says Keith Oliver, founder of the gallery.
The goal of the exhibit is to bridge the cultural gap of art and help shape what is viewed as a masterpiece.
Although Oliver has no background in art, he wanted his brother's legacy to live in a place that brings people together and he found that connection through artwork.
"That's the main reason I created this gallery. He communicated with many different cultures, many different people and that's what I wanted this gallery to be," says Oliver.
C & K Art Gallery is open Wednesdays to Mondays on Atlantic Avenue.
