With the doors opening at 1pm (staying open till 6), you have just enough time to check out the DTE hip hop classes and cool down with a seaside snack at the Fairway cafe before heading across the street to see the work of Brooklyn-based visual artists of all stripes.
The show is Brokelyn-approved, and if that’s not enough for you how about this? One of the featured artists is DTE board member Audrey Anastasi. Her beautiful portrait work will be be seen alongside three other featured artists (and another 200+ “unfeatured” but featured artists), photographer (and Audrey’s husband!) Joseph Anastasi, painter David DiPasquale, and photographer Arden Suydam.
Of the BrooklynStudioTour, who’s great open studio tour of Carroll Gardens & Red Hook I personally e-promised to feature on the blog a couple of days ago. Fear not, though, because the tour is this weekend, and you’ve got all the info you need right here:
Participating spaces include BWAC, the new Space 414, and many, many more.
“The Color of Hope” opens tomorrow and will be at BWAC until June 14. Don’t wait to check it out, though, because they’ve got some great stuff planned for this weekend’s opening. From the BWAC website:
Our opening weekend festivities include a Meet the Artists reception on Saturday with music by The Loose Marbles, a traditional New Orleans street band, 3PM. The celebration continues on Sunday, with jazz guitarist Ron Jackson.
Featured artist for this show is Renee Radenberg, who creates objects of beauty of recycled scrap glass and metal.
The show is completely FREE, and the gallery is open from 1-6pm on weekends.
And if all that wasn’t enough for you? Come by to see DTE’s Got Dot? Project in action, as we set up a table for our community art project in the BWAC space.
