Red Hook has recently been the inspiration for a number of artists in a variety of media.

Next month, Thomas Dunne Books will publish the novel "Red Hook," written by Gabriel Cohen, and set among the gritty streets and history of this working-class neighborhood. On display now in Red Hook’s Community Gallery is an exhibition of the faces of the people who make a difference in this portion of South Brooklyn.

"Portraits of a Neighborhood" is Audrey Frank Anastasi’s series of paintings at the Community Gallery (Independence Community Bank, 498 Columbia St. at Lorraine Street) which can be viewed now through Sept. 29.

Anastasi has fashioned these mixed-media portraits of "inspiring members of the Red Hook community" including Shona Bowers (left) of the community-service organization Americorps.

The gallery is open Monday through Thursday, 8:30 am to 3:30 pm; Friday, 8:30 am to 7 pm; and Saturday, 8:30 am to 1 pm. For more information, call (718) 768-0305. The exhibition is free.
