South PARK SLOPE/WINDSOR TERRACE ARTISTS’ OPEN STUDIO TOUR 11/8-11/9

Via the CCGH newsgroup:

Fine artists and photographers invite the general public to visit their studios over the November 8th & 9th  weekend,noon – 7 PM.   The two dozen participating studios are located within easy walking distance of each other.  Expect to see a wide range of art,including painting, photography and ceramics.  By going directly to an artist’s studio you can see a larger collection of the artists work and more variety than you would see at a gallery show. You can see what your Brooklyn neighbors have been creating and see how hard they have been working to bring you beautiful items. This is   experience, walking through the studios of several very different artists.

A great annual tour to allow neighbors to see what our artist neighbors have been working on in 2014.

This link below will show you art of the artists who are participating. It also links to our websites. Maps of all the artists can be obtained on line or at many shops in the area and at  the studio of any of the artists.

HAPPY Spring!

It’s been a while since we have regularly posted on the blog. Part due to “life,” also part to do with SNOW. Well no longer, almost 80 degrees today and happy Mother’s Day and happy spring GWH-ers. More spring posts coming soon, though we’d love to hear what folks think are issues (good or bad) withing the neighborhood, plus goings on, announcements, new photos, etc. You can submit them to the CCGH newsgroup or e-mail us.

Here’s a wee-bit of spring inspiration from within our biggest neighbor Green-Wood!
