Off The Beaten Path: #GOS2017 Studios to Check Out!

Much of Greenpoint’s magic and mystery lies off the beaten path… beyond Manhattan Avenue, the “other side” of McGuinness, in the shadow of the BQE… this is where the artists thrive, where you’re free to make and create. Ultimately, it’s these nooks and crannies that make Greenpoint such a creative center.

Don’t be afraid to make the trip and meet these GOS artists!

Brooklyn Art Studios
276 Greenpoint Ave.

This building may be a bit off the beaten path but worth making the trip. Visit Erin Lynn Welsh (image above), or any of the other two-dozen participating artists in the building.

473 Porter Ave.

Another hidden gem! This building includes 12 participating GOS artists, including Brandon Lipchick.

488 Morgan Ave.

This is one of those buildings that you probably wouldn’t normally walk past… but it’s worth checking out this weekend! This spot has 13 participating artists, including Elizabeth Cooper on the third floor and Noble Goods custom design shop on the second floor.

Of course, there’s plenty more!

Check out the online map on the GOS site and the links below for suggested routes and featured artists! But most importantly, GET OUT THERE! Support our local arts community!
