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.

Regardless of the artists’ stature or status, most studios will be open.

Contributed by Sharon Butler / In �Of Earth and Sky,� on view at Susan Eley Fine Art, Rachelle Krieger presents a new series of elegant abstract paintings in which winding brushstrokes float throughout tightly-cropped square spaces.

As some readers may remember, I went to the University of Connecticut for my MFA degree, and until last year, I taught an MFA seminar up in Storrs.
