PSWT Artists @ South Slope Open Studios

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.)

Artist Talk by Howard Skrill at the PopUp Gallery, Saturday, Sept 24, 4pm

howard-skril-civic-slope

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

Micro-Retrospective: PSWT Group Show @ SuperCollider

rich-garr-supercollider-3

Park Slope & Windsor Terrace Open Studio Participants

will choose a pair of art pieces that shows the evolution of their artwork from past to present. The recent work will be displayed alongside the earlier piece, creating a room full of “micro-retrospectives”. Some work responds directly to vast, recent changes in Brooklyn. Some is more self-referential or abstract. Either way, the exhibition promises to be a real mixed-bag, highlighting the breadth of work in our community and the constant evolution of artistic processes, and providing a teaser for the Open Studios weekend Sat and Sun

Participating artists, family, friends—and of course press—are encouraged to attend.

The opening is Thursday November 5th, 6:30 to 8:30.
Show is 11/5 – 12/2  Open Studio is 11/7/8 12-16pm
