MF Gallery has been in the forefront of NYC’s Underground Pop Art Scene for the past six years. Artists / curators Martina Secondo Russo and Frank Russo opened the first MF Gallery in the L.E.S. in June 2003, when the neighborhood still had a bit of its underground flavor. MF Gallery quickly became a meeting point where all kinds of misfit artists, freaks, and art collectors could enjoy new art, with surprise appearances by Zombies, Monsters or Mega-Sized Robots playing Death Metal!

Five years later, due to space restrictions and increasing gentrification, MF Gallery closed the doors on its L.E.S. location. But Martina and Frank have kept busy in the meantime, curating shows in alternative spaces around the city, and even opening an MF Gallery overseas, in Martina’s hometown of Genoa, Italy. Now the duo are returning to the Big Apple with a  bigger and badder MF Gallery, (A.K.A. The “Mighty” Fortress MF) once again pioneering an up and coming neighborhood- this time the underground arts area of Gowanus, Brooklyn.

The first show in the new space will be MF Gallery’s Seventh Annual Halloween Art Show. With artwork that is dark and scary, while still maintaining a Pop Art sensibility, this is a yearly group show that MF Gallery has kept up since the very beginning. This year’s Halloween Themed Art was created by a group of International artists such as:  Joe Simko, Ed Repka, Sarah Sheil, Scott Holloway, The Death Head, Dennis McNett, Matt Siren, Nicole Steen, Mark Riddick, Aaron Tompkins, Mary Doyle, El-Rana, Martina Secondo Russo, Frank Russo, and others; many of whom will be present at the Opening.

The Opening Party / Halloween Costume Party will be on Saturday, October 24th from seven to ten PM. Admission is FREE and open to All Ages. Refreshments will be served to a punk rock / heavy metal soundtrack. All  guests who come dressed in a Halloween Costume will get FREE BEER all night!

MF Gallery is located at 213 Bond Street (between Butler and Baltic Streets) in Brooklyn, NY. The Gallery can be easily reached by Subway- Take the F or G trains to Bergen Street, (Exit at Bergen and Smith, walk 2 blocks east on Bergen street. Turn right on Bond street.
