My studio is located in the Gowanus area of Brooklyn. Ever since I moved my studio here, I've been astounded by how much support local artist receive from just one organization: Arts Gowanus. Headed by Abby Subak, and aided by a steadfast crew of loyal hardworking and thoroughly involved staff and volunteers, the group is a cornerstone of the arts community in Brooklyn. Running everything from workshops to help artists learn to better their careers to the yearly Arts Gowanus Open Studios, the organization is a huge benefit -directly and personally- to us artists here.
Every year they hold a benefit event- where you get to pick and take home an original artwork by a local artist. Last year it sold out, and was tremendous fun. This year, I am donating a framed watercolor titled " Sauvage." It's a study for a new large painting. The image is 9 x 12" and it will be framed to 16 x 20" I actually have an opening in Williamsburg the same evening, so I won't be able to attend, but I am honored to donate it as a support to Arts Gowanus. Here is a link to the event page where you can register!
