Dave Godowsky is Filling the Pop Out With Art This Weekend

Brooklyn-based abstract artist Dave Godowsky is bringing his contemplative, ethereal chalk creations to our Williamsburg market this weekend. Depicting both familiar scenes, such as the view of the city from Fort Tilden, and some more abstract renderings, Godowsky infuses local flare to his chalk meditations. Read Godowsky's statement about what inspired him below:

 "Tilden w city" 2017

"Tilden w city" 2017

"America was already at the height of click-happy surface-level culture in November 2016 when the government shifted. I found myself (like many others) slipping further and further into an anxious abyss. Envisioning these calming images somehow helped. These chalk pieces are my attempt to manifest those images on paper."

Dave Godowsky Art will turn out Pop Out space into an art gallery over the weekend of July 22-23. Stop by to meditate, contemplate, and pick up some original artwork for yourself.
