Greenpoint Brooklyn Open Studios-October 3rd-5th 2014

colleen blackard artist brooklyn, nycThis weekend is the Greenpoint Brooklyn Open Studios from October 3rd-5th. I happened to have a Feng Shui client in Crown Heights, NY so it worked out perfectly to swing up to 67 West street, Brooklyn NY, 11222. That is only one of the many studios open this weekend.


There is also 37 Greenpoint ave, Pencil Factory 61 Greenpoint ave, and so many more. To see the locations of other studios please visit Greenpoint Open Studios.


I wanted to point out the dedication and passion these local, national and international artists have with their craft. So when a price is quoted you understand the value and worth being presented to you. The piece above is called, 'Paths of Memory,' created by Artist Collen Blackard.  I inquired about her process and time it took to create the 3x4 drawing.

colleen blackard artist workI was told this entire drawing was created by ball point pen, in fact the very one you see in the photo.

All I could say, along with the stream of viewers alike was, AMAZING. When that fact in the process of creation was shared, many had a new found respect for what they were viewing. It took Ms. Blackard two months to complete.

So when you come to these open studios please ask about the artist, their drive, inspiration, and process. It will help give you an even greater appreciation. To see more of Colleen Blackard's one of kind creations please visit, ColleenBlackard.com.

Other artists I had the pleasure of meeting were Rami Baglio, Aditya Shringarpure and Tim Campbell.
