|Friday, April 11, 7-9 pm, the Art Lillard Quartet comes to the Inkwell, 408 Rogers Avenue, between Sterling and Lefferts. Drummer and bandleader Art Lillard is known for his ability to “read” a room and respond to his audience. With bassist Ralph Hamperian, pianist Ted Kooshian, and vocalist Marion Cowings, Lillard presents tuneful, melodic music that draws influences from traditional swing and jazz and more contemporary popular music.|

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.

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.
Join us for the opening reception for the latest in our Local Artist series at Tugboat Tea Company.
I was born in the windy city and grew up in Connecticut. My art education began at age 5 or so with classes at the Wadsworth Atheneum drawing armor and such.
I graduated from Rhode Island School of Design, moved to Paris, then to NYC where I continue to paint, illustrate and generally survive as a working artist.
And I sling fish for Blue Moon at the NYC Greenmarket, latest source of my creative endeavors and amusement.
Here are some of my latest paintings, done over the last year in California, Upstate New York, and of course my studio in Prospect Lefferts Gardens.
I hope you enjoy the views.
To purchase the paintings, please contact the artist: email@example.com
Painting and ceramic commissions welcome!
Friday, Sept 13, promises to be a day of good luck as we change dates and times for the Jazz@the Inkwell series. The new fall lineup begins with Kane Mathis from 7-9 pm on Friday, Sept 13.
Stop in on your way home from work and/or on your way out. You’ll hear Kane mix the rhythmic counterpoint of the kora and the sinuous melodies of the oud. With Luke Notary on percussion, the two forge into new technical and compositional territory where traditional repertoire joins modern instrumentation.
The Inkwell, 408 Rogers Avenue, between Lefferts Avenue and Sterling Street. Drinks and bar food available. $5 suggested donation supports the artists and PLG Arts.
