Artists on this year’s tour include Brooklyn cityscape painters, photographers, sculptors, and printmakers.
The image shown is by Janie Samuels . The newest development in her work are photographic gel transfer and oil on panel works. These grew out of her interest in manipulating both drawings and photographs on the computer and reworking them by hand in pastel or oils. The subject is landscapes both urban and rural, an intimate portrait from every day life. Her studio is located at 614 Seventh Ave at 22nd St.
The tour will also feature creative ceramics artists who make earthenware limited edition, one-of-a-kind, functional pots and large sculptural vessels. Caryn Kreutzer is currently creating cups and impressive oval platters as well as beautiful bowls.
