Opening Reception: May 28TH, 6-9 pm

Paul Loya Gallery is proud to present Tom Fruin’s FRESH PRODUCE.

Tom Fruin’s WATERTOWER has become synomymous with the Brooklyn skyline and his Kolonihavehus that took up residence in Brooklyn Bridge park last year became an icon in social media for park goers.

Working from project to project and just finishing his new Greenpoint WATERTOWER, Tom wanted to do something fun, spontaneous and abit avante garde with these new pieces that has been creating in his studo on the side.

A kind of “pop up” exhibition based on a produce stand idea of showcasing work, FRESH PRODUCE, became the title of this latest installment of Fruin’s work. An immersive experience of wall mounted objects created from steel and plexiglass will fill the gallery walls for this 3 week exhibition. Steel sketches and studies to help create his large public works will available for purchase. An opportunity to own a small piece of the creative process that goes into creating these now iconic city projects.
