- Skewville's India Street mural, getting augmented by Veng.
After a full day of studios and a visit to the Crest Hardware Art Show opening on Saturday, Sunday at Northside Open Studios was a decidedly more chill affair. After starting at the India Street Arts Festival, I made my way to buildings along Greenpoint Avenue. Here are some highlights.
- The India Street Arts Festival.
- Julie Torres was there live-painting; visitors were free to pick up a painting.
- Sherry Aliberti was there with her cocoon playground; visitors were free to hop in a cocoon.
- In the Pencil Factory at 61 Greenpoint Avenue, John Kitses had these weirdly beautiful watercolor and oil paintings of highways.
- Also in the Pencil Factory, Jackie Hoving's studio was full of these painting and collage creatures.
- Raunchy cats in the J. Morrison pop-up shop at 61 Greenpoint Avenue.
- And then, inexplicably, an NYPD cruiser door in the hall at 61 Greenpoint Avenue.
- Small drawings and prints hanging in the hall at Brooklyn Art Studios.
- Paintings in Todd Bienvenu's studio at 250 Greenpoint Avenue.
- A random masked cyclist painting in the hallway at 250 Greenpoint Ave.
- And, lastly, one of the best pieces of the weekend, this mural-sized mixed-media painting by Jae Kyung Kim.
Thanks to everyone who attended and participated in Northside Open Studios!
