We are happy again to participate in South Slope Open Studios.
We are around the corner from MadArts, at 202 17th Street (see map below), and down the street from the group show at Freddy’s Bar and Open Source Gallery, one of our sponsors.
Valerie Trucchia is a visual artist. French born from Italian parents. The work My Mother and I (left) starts a series of ink drawings “Oppressions”, expressing the overpowering relationships in humanity, from the family nucleus to the manipulation of masses.
Bob Hagan is an accidental artist. Interviewing with the National Security Agency, he was told, “go back to school and get art out of your system”. Art must be subversive.
The work (right) the Triumph of Civic Virtue over Unrighteousness starts the series “Regime Change”. one of two series (also “Founders”) being shown.
(Note: Susan Greenstein @ 440 Gallery is also a PSWT Artist.)
Park Slope Windsor Terrace Artists Open Studio Weekend, November 12 & 13
Looking at art and making art keeps a lot of us sane. The artists of Park Slope Windsor Terrace Artists hope that you will visit us in our studios and art spaces this weekend to see what we’ve been working on. We are eager to share our art—the beauty, the thought, the process—and open up discussions about how art and making things by hand add so much to our lives.
Go to the Directory of Artists to find each artist’s address, open hours, and contact information.
Check Facebook to stay up to date on some of the special demos that will be going on during the weekend, as well as more information about each artist. Dress warm, wear good walking shoes, bring $$ if you’re looking for gifts or something special for yourself. If you’re traveling to Brooklyn via subway, check the MTA website for any last-minute transportation issues in Park Slope and Windsor Terrace.
We look forward to seeing you this weekend!
34 artists welcome you to view art in the actual location where it is created. Each artist will be onsite to answer questions, suggest purchase options, discuss techniques — we look forward to seeing you! Click images below to go to our 2016 Directory Of Artists. There you’ll find locations and times for each artist, sample art, and contact info.

Howard Skrill’s artwork of the sculpture Civic Virtue will be part of his talk on Saturday.
Artist/Educator Howard Skrill will be reading from his latest book-length monograph “Damnatio Memoriae” at the ArtSlope PopUp Gallery on Saturday, Sept 24 at 4pm. Skrill’s artwork is on display along with 22 artists from the Park Slope Windsor Terrace Artists group.
This reading, taken from Skrill’s “Damnatio Memoriae”, is about the destruction of public monuments and how the destroyed sculptures are discarded in public plazas and museums throughout New York City. The reading specifically speaks about sculptor Mac Moinne’s work Civic Virtue over Unrighteousness, as it moved from Manhattan’s City Hall Park to a fountain at the Kew Gardens subway station to a location in Brooklyn’s Green-Wood Cemetery. Howard Skrill’s drawing of Civic Virtue , shown above, is on display as part of the gallery exhibition.
Location: ArtSlope PopUp Gallery 575 Fifth Ave, between 15th St & 16th St, Brooklyn.
Date/Time: Saturday Sept 24, at 4:00 pm
