“It’s been a really tough year for artists and vendors in general,” Ray said. “We are in the 11th year of Art for All and it’s such a great way for the community to come out and support local art and these local artists, so we are excited to welcome people back into the Brooklyn Arts Center. For some of these artists, this is the first time they’re actually able to attend an event and sell some of their goods.”
