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 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
