SNAPS: Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation Open Studios

Originally in Tribeca and now located in DUMBO, the Marie Walsh Sharpe Studio Program has been granting free studio space to visual artists since 1991. Phong Bui, Rochelle Feinstein, Chris Martin, Harriet Shorr and Don Voisine selected the sixteen 2013 residents from more than 1000 applicants. Last week I stopped by their spring Open Studios, where the residents presented new work in spacious lofts overlooking the East River and the Manhattan Bridge. What a view. Here are some snaps of paintings on view.

  1. Feldman is stunning. Without a net. Trust in pictorial structure. Concentrated terms. In the idiom she has set up, the thin arc reads as a massive event.

  2. There are many unqique masterpieces on this blog. Some seemed a tad bit mischevious but never the less. I'm really infatuated with the first painting by Didier William. I think that its amazing and awesome that has was able to capture the vision and display it! Job well done!
