IRL: DUMBO Open Studios in 2022

Contributed by Sharon Butler / On Saturday, April 23, and Sunday, April 24, from 12–6pm, DUMBO artists and arts organizations will open their studios to the public for the first time since 2019, after which DUMBO Open Studios went online due to Covid. The art community here (Two Coats HQ is in the neighborhood) is distinct from others in New York because several prestigious residency programs call DUMBO home. In addition, subsidized rents (Two Coats is a grateful beneficiary of the Two Trees Cultural Space Subsidy Program) make the neighborhood affordable for a diverse cohort of talented artists, both emerging and mid-career. Regardless of the artists’ stature or status, most studios will be open.

Two Coats Selected Gallery Guide: April, 2022

Contributed by Sharon Butler / Due to a massive hack attack at Two Coats of Paint, we had to rebuild our most recent files, including the April gallery guide. Call it a work in progress. We will continue to edit and update as necessary. INVITATION: Save the date for DUMBO Open Studios, April 22-24, when I will be showing some recent work created for a collaborative project with CounterPointe9, with choreographer Julia Gleich and Norte Maar in my studio at 55 Washington Street. I also organized a show at Platform Project Space called “MOD” featuring one of my paintings alongside singular works by Peter Dudek, Steve Hicks, Sheila Pepe, and Adam Simon. Located at 20 Jay Street #319, Platform is run by artist Elizabeth Hazan. The opening is scheduled for Friday April 22, 6-8 — the same night as the opening party for the Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program, which is in the same building. Please join us!
