At 7:00 pm artist Eric March and S.C.I.’s Juan Rivero will give a gallery talk at Park Slope Gallery, Brooklyn for a discussion of Eric’s show “Moments in Time: Queens to Coney Island” and the political situation in Coney Island that inspired much of the work.

The show features oil paintings, watercolors, prints, and drawings of Coney Island (as well as Long Island City.) Included in the show are images of the beloved Astroland Rocket and pieces celebrating Coney’s crowds of beach-goers.
Eric will share thoughts about the work, how and why he chose his subjects and his process of working.
Juan Rivero will discuss the history of Coney Island, the current political situation that helped inspire some of the work, and what Save Coney Island is doing to preserve and expand Coney’s historic amusement district.
