Park Slope Windsor Terrace Artists’ Open Studio Tour
Park Slope/Windsor Terrace Artists Open Studio Tour
Saturday, November 18th, noon to 5:00 p.m.
Sunday, November 19th, noon to 5:00 p.m.
More than thirty artists in Windsor Terrace and Park Slope will be opening their homes and studios and inviting the public in to have a look.
This collective of visual artists living and working in Park Slope and Windsor Terrace has been opening their doors annually and this tour has become a great neighborhood tradition. The tour brings people from all over the metropolitan area to discover the artists’ skill and artwork.
This year’s open studio tour will take place on Saturday, November 18th, from noon until 5:00 p.m., and Sunday, November 19th, also from noon until 5:00 p.m.
Artists on this year’s tour include Brooklyn cityscape painters, photographers, sculptors, and printmakers.
Susan Greenstein and her husband, Phil Desantis, are showing their paintings, prints, and cards at 229-A Windsor Place.
The very interesting work of computer photography image-maker, Bob Hagen can be seen at 202 17th Street.
Joy Makon will be showing her elegant watercolors at 41 Fuller Place (between Windsor Place and Prospect Avenue).
Focusing on quiet NYC settings, Tom Keough’s vision of urban home will seem both familiar and strange to anyone who knows this densely populated city. Mysteriously empty streets, dark alleys and overlooked corners are transformed by the effects of man-made light and heaven-sent snow or trees full leaves and the street lights behind them. His work can be seen at 303A 16th Street.
The tour will also feature creative ceramics artists who make earthenware limited edition, one-of-a-kind, functional pots and large sculptural vessels. Caryn Kreitzer, at 16 Temple Court (off Seeley Street one block from Prospect Park Southwest), is currently creating cups and impressive oval platters as well as beautiful bowls.
