GOS 2017: Self-Guided Art Walks – McCarren Park

There are over 400 Greenpoint artists participating in this year’s Greenpoint Open Studios. Thank you, and congrats, Greenpoint!

While we encourage everyone attending to explore and wander among the studios all weekend, we wanted to put together a few suggested routes, roughly 1 mile each, that could help you navigate the neighborhood, or at least have a launch point!

Starting in McCarren Park with the participating artists of the Go Green! festival, this self-guided walk takes you through and around the park, visiting artist studios on and near Manhattan Avenue before concluding with a special musical performance at The Lot Radio and the San Damiano Mission…

Follow the map and enjoy!

Be sure to tag your findings #GOS2017. See you in the streets!

Line & Label

I make leather handbags, clothing, and hand painted textiles – all influenced by the high end designers I have worked for in the past and the rock and roll spirit of the 1970’s in New York City. Love combining leather, lace, and fringe in not so overtly feminine ways.

GOS 2017: Self-Guided Art Walks – McGolrick Park

Look in the mirror… Consider your mortality and wonder at the strange, complex reality of our urban density and proximity. Meet some young, ambitious artists who are new to Greenpoint. Taxidermy? Check. Indie record label? Check. Ceramic skulls? Check.

All of this in just a one mile stroll around McGolrick Park!

With over 400 Greenpoint artists participating in this year’s Greenpoint Open Studios, we encourage everyone attending to explore and wander among the studios all weekend! And for those of you looking for a place to kick off, we wanted to put together a few suggested routes, roughly 1 mile each, that could help you navigate the neighborhood.

Thank you for everyone participating! And congrats, Greenpoint!

This is #GOS2017 – see you there June 3 and 4!

Photography gives us the ability to create infinite worlds but I work with the simplicity of using real objects and space. I photograph objects in the most simple way. I approach my work playfully – experimenting with form, angles, poses and compositions. I subvert otherwise minimal images with a surreal edge. I use clean lines with odd geometry and unexpected forms to heighten the visual surprise and given a hint of the grotesque.

A young, energetic artist who is new to Greenpoint. I love to express myself through color and active brush strokes while merging the worlds of abstract and design.

Get To Know: Eckford Street Studio

A Figure Drawing Tuesday in action at Eckford Street Studio

Entering Eckford Street Studio is akin to discovering Candyland, except instead of candy, here you will find every nook and cranny crammed with a rainbow of colorful art supplies. It’s like Ollivanders, except instead of a wand, here you will get handed a paintbrush!

The studio, located at 70 Eckford Street, isn’t just a magically quirky place for your children (or inner child), it is also a seriously-minded community organization instrumental to bringing innovative art education classes to the neighborhood. Founder Kristn Melkin has an extensive background in art education, including time spent as part of the Guggenheim’s Learning Through Art initiative. At Eckford, Kristin works with an experienced staff to organize innovative arts classes as well as coordinate a program that connects artists who teach with local schools. This petite yet incredibly ambitious studio space and community center feels ripe for growth. Continue reading

Spanish Tortilla with Winter Greens

The McGoldrick Park Winter Market started at the end of last month! Its now-indoor location is Lutheran Church of the Messiah, at 129 Russell Street. The market will also be open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on February 21st and March 20th.

Its produce-focused vendors are D&J Farm, Garden of Eve Farm and Jersey Farm Produce. I definitely recommend checking out the Down to Earth Markets website if you wanna see what’s fresh and likely available from these farms ahead of time! Or else just feel safe knowing this is a totally delicious recipe that is totally adaptable to pretty much whatever fresh veg you find. Continue reading
