A Sense of Place will exhibit the artwork of six professional artists, five of whom are living and working at 35 Claver Place in Brooklyn, NY. Not only will this exhibition display the imaginative genius of the artists, but it also will serve as an instructional tool to students, presenting the realities of an artist's life and teaching them skills they will need should they embrace a similar lifestyle.
