For the past few months, Proteus Gowanus, Proteus Gowanus, the interdisciplinary gallery at 543 Union Street, has been hosting a series of exhibitions, workshops and events organized around the theme of 'commerce'. Just recently, the gallery has opened a 'Gowanus Market Place' in its space, which will be open till July 11, 2015.
"As a culmination of our yearlong exploration of the theme COMMERCE,Gowanus Marketplace will explore the intersection of contemporary artistry and industry along the Gowanus Canal as it heeds the growing importance of creatively-based Gowanus commerce.
