open studios

Gowanus rooftops (winter), Francis Sills
This weekend Frank and I will be participating in the Gowanus Artists Open Studio Tour (AGAST), a two day open studio event with about 150 participating artists opening their studios in many converted warehouse buildings throughout the Gowanus area of Brooklyn. We'll be there on Saturday and Sunday, the 17th and 18th, from 1 to 6pm, showing our paintings and selling prints of our work.
This will be the 7th year that we have been involved with this event and it is such fun. It really feels like a huge art party as you walk from studio to studio, each with it's own mood that the art creates in the space, and wine and food flowing in each room. The energy is really exciting and everyone wants to talk about their art and meet people. We have enjoyed taking our kids on the tour, I love for them to be able to run around and see all of the different kinds of art...and they bring their electric kid energy , snacking in each room, playing ball in the long hallways and always making people smile.
If you are in New York come on by!
The painting above is one of Frank's that he'll be showing. Our studio building is towards the back of the painting, right next to the tall metal sign.
