Over the last 6 years, PLG Arts has focused on the vibrant creativity of the residents of Prospect-Lefferts Gardens and surrounding Brooklyn neighborhoods. Our successes to date, though impressive, have been accomplished with a fairly small number of dedicated volunteers. You probably already know PLG Arts through some of our activities:
· Art exhibitions at the Tugboat Tea Company coffee shop
· Jazz at the Inkwell (twice-a-month music series)
· Theater program kickoff event August 17
· Mural near the Q train and on Flatbush Ave (beautification of construction site by local artists, including children)
· Mural on Fenimore Street off Flatbush, etc. (filling in the blank spots with creativity!)
· Neighborhood Group Art Show 2011 (over 3,000 attended in just 2 weeks)
By joining PLG Arts, you will help us create and sponsor more visual arts, dance programs, theater events, and music for the children and adults of our community. Here are just a few of the benefits you will receive as a member:

Please join us for the reception for a show of recent black and white landscape photographs by PLG Arts VP Bob Marvin. The show will run from November 7th through Thursday December 5th, as part of the PLG Arts Tugboat Local Artists series, which Bob curates. It will be at the Tugboat Tea Company, 546 Flatbush Avenue, between Lincoln Road and Beekman Place.
All of the 16 X 20 prints in this show are being exhibited for the first time and are images Bob has made in the past year in Brooklyn and southern Vermont. They emphasize form and texture in details of the landscape that might otherwise be overlooked. Bob uses traditional analog techniques for his landscape photography: mechanical cameras, mainly a Rolleiflex that has been my companion since his college days, medium format black and white film, and fiber-base silver gelatin photographic paper. He’s printed them all in his own darkroom.
The reception for this show will be on
Thursday, November 14th, from 6–9 PM.
Please join us, if you can. If you can’t make the reception, or just want a great cup of tea or coffee, Tugboat’s hours are Mon–Fri, 7 am–7 pm and Sat–Sun. 8 am–6 pm.

Raul’s paintings look great! Vibrant and energetic!
Oct 17th 6-9pm.
Chicago-born Raul Pacheco spent his young adulthood in Miami Beach, where he was profoundly influenced by the city’s visual and aural energy. He creates both intimate and large-scale acrylic non-figurative paintings on canvas and birch panel that explore the interplay of texture, color, shape and field. His paintings are noted for their dynamism and poise. He also creates drawings on paper that distill, perhaps, the richness of his paintings into elegant and essential structures. He resides in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, where he is an active member of PLGArts and numerous other community-building organizations.
