See It! Unique Affordable Art Exhibit "Brown Don't Drown In Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Last week I had the pleasure of attending a superbly, beautiful, well crafted art exhibit I had been awaiting since first hearing about it many months ago. "Brown Don't Drown" curated by Sean Lugo, Savage Habbit and Net was held at 17 Frost Gallery with Ellis Gallagher where all original art pieces ranging in sizes 9x12 to 11x14 could be purchased for only $200.   

If you arrived early you could take home an original Gaia, Viajero, Icy & Sot, Joseph Perez, Nepo, Werc, Tatiana Suarez,  Mr. Prvrt, Toofly or choose from many more.  What I especially liked was no names were listed by each piece, if you liked a piece - you liked it.  Period.  And, maybe discover a new artist instead of gravitating to the bigger names in the galleries or from the murals on the streets. (Thus, why I left the names of art works below too.)
The main installation was a show stopper with a giant wood cut-out by Sean Lugo and background mural by Lunar New Year, MataRuda, and Nanook.  By the time I left towards the end of the night many pieces had a red dot in the lower right corner but there are still art works left.  See the bottom of the post for more information to get one....
