Artoberfest 2010 this Weekend

If you love cheesy puns & local art, this is the event for you! (I kid- I love cheesy puns.)

Adams IV for D. News

Ever wonder what the workspaces of local sculptors, painters, carvers and photographers look like? This weekend, artists of Red Hook and Carroll Gardens are opening up their doors to showcase their crafts.
Check out the Daily News for details, and for a mini-spotlight on one local artist, Rek Santiago.

Tomorrow: Andrew Butler @ ANT Fest

Andrew Butler is a mulit-talented, wonderful artist who has taught in DTE’s in-school programs, is currently (2nd session today!) doing the In Transition Theater Workshop with local young people, and performed for some friends of DTE back in August at the Clover Club.

Tomorrow night, check out his one-man show (excerpts of which were performed at the Clover Club), Rags Parkland, at Ars Nova’s Ant Fest 2010.

From Saturday’s performance of Angels & Accordions at Green-Wood Cemetery, the last of seven years of annual productions (via the Flickr photostream of EnnuiPoet):

More to come throughout the day.

What are you doing tomorrow?

Hopefully seeing Angels & Accordions at Green-Wood Cemetery.  Why?

Well, for one thing it’s going to be a beautiful day & maybe the last time all year you can see the breathtaking grounds of the Cemetery with such nice weather.

More than that, though- tomorrow is your last chance EVER to see this one-of-a-kind site-specific performance.

For the last seven years, DTE Executive Director Martha Bowers has directed the piece and produced it in collaboration with the Green-Wood Historic Fund.   Part walking tour, part performance, part guided meditation through the beautiful and richly historical Green-Wood Cemetery, Angels and Accordions brings to life a Brooklyn treasure through dance, live music, and design.

Tickets are offered at a discount if purchased in advance, so head over to the DTE site and choose the performance time (12:30pm or 4pm) you’d like to attend.

Red Hook in the News

A lot going on this week in the neighborhood.  Here’s a mini-round-up of Red Hook news from the web:

Red Hook Jazz Returns

The Red Hook Jazz Festival is a great event, which they’ve been doing a few years now (I think).  It’s coming back, and Katia Kelly at Pardon me for Asking has put the info better together than I could:  go check out the details there, you lovers of end-of-summer jazz.  We won’t even point out that it’s not technically Red Hook…woops.
