The Williamsburg Gallery Association is ready to unleash RAW: Williamsburg Art Spaces, the 2009 Williamsburg gallery and culture guide.

The event, co-presented by the WGA’s partner, Pernod Absinthe, will feature an Art Exhibition/Fundraiser with artwork by area artists and the RAW “Art Fight”—DJ Corey Tut will delight listening ears, while local visual artists duel on stage creating live art. The fabulous “Basic Black” will MC the fight!

Outside the venue, area urban street artists will remake the façade of Sugarland. The art exhibition and the completed “Art Fight” artwork and Urban Guerilla Street Art will be auctioned off to support the artists and the WGA.

Galleries will be open tomorrow, Friday, November 14 from 6:00 – 10:00 p.m. Afterward there will be an afterparty. Complimentary absinthe “libations” will be available from 10:00 – 11:00 p.m. and Sugarland (where the above installation can be seen for one night only!) will be hosting a “Coney Island style” burlesque performance by the “infamous Bambi the Mermaid”.

221 North 9 Street
Brooklyn, New York 11211
