BAY RIDGE — Brooklyn artists and photographers collaborated with Gallery 364 to create a new empowering venture for the borough’s Women Against Violence organization: a 2010-2011 calendar featuring 15 artworks.
“The art and photographs are all winning artworks featured from the ‘Empowerment’ art exhibit and competition back in June that we had for the organization,” said photographer Georgine Benvenuto, founder of Gallery 364. The gallery and art studio occupy the entire first floor of her historic circa-1910 limestone house.
Elected officials supporting Women Against Violence include Councilmen Vincent Gentile and Dominick Recchia Jr.; State Senators Marty Golden and Diane Savino; and Assembly Members Peter Abbate, Alec Brook-Krasny and Janele Hyer-Spencer.
