Norte Maar Presents @ Schema Projects
In celebration of its 10th Anniversary Bushwick’s first non-profit arts organization, Norte Maar, will be curating new exhibitions, readings, and performances at Schema Projects (92 St. Nicholas Avenue, Brooklyn). Schema Projects was the first Bushwick gallery dedicated exclusively to works of art on paper. Housed in a former barbershop storefront, it is the brainchild of New York artist Mary Judge, well known for her dedication to all forms of drawing, both as a studio artist and educator. Norte Maar Presents @ Schema will run October 2014-March 2015.
