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!

White Balance Studio / Anna Morgowicz

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.

Julia Norton, Painting
Simulated oases, adventure game shows, and gymnastics are amongst the varied references in Julia Norton’s (b.1985, New York City) ongoing exploration of environment, body, and form. Her most recent series, Things That Could Go Wrong in the Holodeck, builds upon Norton’s interest in spaces as sources of fantasy, reinvention, and things gone awry.

Weekend Art Roundup: April 21 – April 23

Photo: @apsmithnyc “Hiiiii!”

OK, guys… we’re in the midst of some serious cosmic happenings… As you may know, Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, and Pluto are all currently in retrograde. And Mercury turns retro next week. What does all this mean?

Well, Jupiter deals with personal growth and expansion, so don’t freak out if you feel like you’re treading water right now. Pluto rules love and relationships, Mars is all about emotions and *gulp* sanity, and Saturn essentially manages your karma points. in short: if you feel kinda crazy and listless, you’re not alone!

What better time to check out some art? Get pro-active, y’all. The cosmos may be trying to hold you back, but go out there and let yourself be great!

The Hollows: Performance Studio: “Mattress” & “Pressing On”
Friday, April 21
7pm, 8pm, 9:15pm
at The Hollows, 151 Bedford Avenue
$10-$20 Continue reading

Tonight: Alison Owen at Greenpoint Hill Opening

Alison Owen at Greenpoint Hill

Kim Brown’s Greenpoint Hill first opened last October and has since hosted a handful of exhibitions in this unique retail-cum-gallery space on Freeman Street.

Tonight, Greenpoint Hill presents an exhibition of new work by Alison Owen.

Inside Greenpoint Hill at 100 Freeman St.

Owen’s new work is assembled from scraps and residue found at the studio; often donated by artists who work alongside her. The work reflects the poetry found in fragments and cast-offs, existing as a quiet, formal response to the found materials.

The exhibition will also feature an installation made from the to-do lists and notes of her friends. Created from pages sent from the notes app, she has created physical versions of this digital ephemera. With some distance, divorced from context, these notes become little poems; dream-fragments.

at Greenpoint Hill, 100 Freeman St.
March 30 – May 14, 2017
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 30, 7-9pm
