If you’re buying wine at Dandelion Wine this weekend, look around at the artwork – OMG Webcats by Scott Chasse. Below is a video of the opening night.
Our Women’s History Month series continues today with the painter Jay Miriam, whose sister Isabel nominated her by writing to us with this introduction:
Jay Miriam creates large, vibrant, sensitive paintings that serve to bring out emotion and that people instantly connect to. Jay is awesome for Greenpoint because she lives for her art, and wants regular people to have access to it. Continue reading
The team behind Ugly Art Room is excited to host an art piece by Greenpoint artist David B. Smith in the elevator on the way up to our Spring Market on 4/13/14! The show will be up all day, but there will be a proper “opening reception” from 4-6pm. Make sure to swing by – or up or down! RSVP on Facebook
Alone time can be lonely or even scary, but it’s also a time when we can truly know and understand ourselves (See what I mean? Scary!) Featured Valentine’s Market vendor Janet Rutkowski, a metal worker who will be selling small scale heart sculptures and candle holders on Sunday, told us about her love for being by herself in her studio, working with fire!
Come and check out my drawings (which would make very sweet and inexpensive but original Valentine’s gifts!), drink wine and hang with the great folks at Dandelion Wine (153 Franklin St) as part of Greenpoint Gallery Night on Friday, February 7, 2014 from 6-9pm. Please RSVP.
Hope to see you!
A room within a room. A girl within a room, within a room. An artist who hired a girl to live within a room, within a room. This sets the stage for Cy Amundson’s experimental exhibition at Rawson Projects, Emily’s Dorm Room, open through January 16, 2014.
Amundson placed an ad online at NYU for a participant to live inside a dorm room he built in a modestly sized gallery on Franklin St in Greenpoint for over one month. He originally hoped to meet an art student but luckily ended up with Emily, a sophomore pursuing a degree in Gender Studies, whose main area of interest is how women are portrayed in the media.
There is nothing more one of a kind (and cool) than artwork by Greenpoint artists. We highly suggest that instead of mass produced junk destined for the landfill – buy local art for your loved ones – OR YOURSELF – this year! There are a TON of art shows – some with VERY affordably priced works – opening in Greenpoint this Friday the 13th…
This visual round-up is our gift to you. Feast your eyes… Continue reading
Did you know that our amazing Terrarium Workshop teacher Claire Typaldos is also an accomplished printmaker?
Work from her recent residency at Anderson Ranch in Colorado is on display at EAT (124 Meserole Ave). The opening reception for PRINTS is this evening, Thursday December 5th, 2013 from 7-9pm.
We talked with Claire about her printmaking process and this particular body of work.
With an influx of second wave of blockbuster artists ( M. D. Jackson and the like ) on the heels of first wave young hip artists, it’s easy to forget that there have been local people making work in the neighborhood since well before the first plaid clad types ventured in to a then “scary” area.
Eleanor Curran grew up in Greenpoint “when there was only one Chinese restaurant.” The lively Mrs. Curran grew up on Eckford St before moving to a house on Leonard St that still connected with her Dad’s old house.
“There was always the question of whether I lived in his backyard, or he in mine!” Continue reading
