(Brooklyn, NY) September 20, 2009 ─ A series of intimate, conversation-based exhibitions, the G-Train Salon made its debut in February from a living room on Atlantic and Flatbush Avenues.  Now, as the actual G-Train continues to expand its reach into Park Slope, Brooklyn, we are proud to announce another season of inspiring salons in collaboration with Urban Alchemist Design Collective, the jewelry and design gem in the Slope!  In the tradition of fostering a dialogue between the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens, we are thrilled to present, “Texture Gardens” on Friday, September 25 from 7-9pm featuring mixed-media artist Carla E. Reyes, a Queens-bred talent and former resident of Crane St. Studios in Long Island City.  Following Crane St.’s devastating staircase collapse in April, Reyes found a new artistic home in Greenpoint, Brooklyn where she cultivated new roots and new work inspired by the lore of gardens and natural motifs.  Join us for this Friday when the artist discusses her journey and process behind “Texture Gardens,” a unique collection created from combinations of “natural” and man-made materials.
