Open Studios 2012: The Brooklyn Museum Go Project

Go_Scarab

I’ll have the studio doors open this Saturday and Sunday, September 8th-9th from 11AM to 7PM.

September is here with it’s promise of fall- and this year the month is starting with what might be the largest open studio event everThe Brooklyn Museum’s Go Project. I’m participating, and I could use your help!

Here’s why: The museum has turned the tables and made it so that you, the visitor, have the most important role in this event. You can vote- and your votes help  artists win a visit with curators or even a show at the Brooklyn Museum. It’s irresitable catnip for us artists. That’s why over 1,758 of us are participating in this event! Hopefully it will be as enticing to you. I’m sure it will be fun.

If you make my studio your first stop on your tour, I’m happy to help you get set up so you can vote. I’ll have a wireless network you can use to download the app. You can check in at six studios right in my building. Even if you have only a hour of time for this event, that is enough to make a difference.

The studio is at:
89 Bridge Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201

phone: 917.957.7576

Complete details and a map are on my page on the Go website.

See you there!

Migration, an exhibit at Proteus Gowanus

Three of the Wanderer Prints are part of the fall 2011 exhibit at Proteus Gowanus here in Brooklyn. The title of the exhibition year at the gallery is Migration, and this first show of the season will run from September 17th through early January. If you are in Brooklyn on the evening of the 17th, please join us for what will be a warm and lively reception:

Proteus Gowanus
Wine Reception for Migration

Saturday, September 17, 7-9pm
543 Union Street (at Nevins)
Brooklyn, NY 11215

Directions for getting there

Proteus Gowanus bills itself as an interdisciplinary gallery and a reading room. I would add that it is an example of genius in the fully unpacked meaning of the word: brilliant and complete unto itself, the project is also very much of its place and generous of spirit. It is worth the trip. Go visit and be nudged, inspired, and informed.

There will be fifteen artists participating in this exhibit, along with an artist-in-residence, several correspondents, and a new blog called Proteoscope. Take a look around the Proteus Gowanus website for more information about the many avenues by which the Migration theme will be traveled.
