Sheepshead Moves to Fort Greene

Okay, so Sheepshead Bay is not moving to Fort Greene, but our fishermen are! No, no, that’s not true either. I took the liberty of writing the sensational headline to make sure that you will read this post and hurry on over to this special exhibit. Let me explain.

We would like to tell you about Fishermen of Sheepshead Bay, a special presentation of photographs and essays having to do with our very own Bay fishing culture and those who participate in it. These unique documentary photographs were taken by contributing New York Post photographer, Christian Johnston, and the essays were written by award-winning writer and soon-to-be novelist, Shamar Hill.

You’ll have to hurry over to the Gallery Three at A.R.T./New York’s South Oxford Space to see this exhibit before it ends its run there, by this Friday, September 19, 2008. If you can’t make by then, you might be able to catch this exhibit in its next run at another venue. Please stay tuned to Sheepshead Bites for information about where you can catch this fish, ahem, Fishermen of Sheepshead Bay  display.
