Ea1t
87 Richardson Street
Studio #300 D

Ea1t was founded by sisters and food lovers – Karolina & Kasia Gumpert.

Karolina and Kasia were born in Poland. Nowadays, they live and work in Brooklyn, New York. After graduation from the Silesian University with MA in Psychology and Food Studies, Karolina was traveling throughout Spain, France and Morocco to finally settle down in Brooklyn. Kasia lives in Brooklyn and holds MFA in Photography from International Center of Photography and Bard College, New York.

The sisters appreciate the art of eating and hospitality thanks to their Grandma Maria. They have taken inspiration from her culinary tradition and combined it with their passion for seasonal ingredients, flavor combinations to put their tasting experience on the international culinary map.

In addition to food styling and managing culinary workshops, Karolina is available for the recipe development, menu tastings and private events. Besides photography, Kasia offers her expertise in art curating and publishing.

The Puzzle Project
67 West Street
4th Floor

The Puzzle Art Installation & Collaborative Project is a Greenpoint-based, worldwide art collaboration. The “Puzzle Project” consists of thousands of 24″x 24″ artistic puzzle pieces created in more than 30 states and 20 countries. The puzzle pieces are assembled together into a massive jigsaw puzzle art installation. People of all ages from communities, corporations, galleries, museums, arts groups, schools, non-profit organizations and individuals have created puzzle artwork to help grow this historic collaboration. It is a simple way for each of us to express ourselves or tell a story with art. You don’t have to be an artist to participate. There are no rules to how you make your puzzle piece. You just have to have something to say. Like each
of us, every puzzle piece is different. Together they create a large meaningful piece of collaborative art that is like nothing ever seen or exhibited.
