Was Time to Break, Then BOS!

Jodie Manasavet's work at Bushwick Open Studios

Soft touch, like Bonnard, one of her favorites

Simultaneous contrast and texture

More recent work:the color is better in person. Bonnardian to the core.

Jeanne Tremel--one of two gorgeous works on paper.

Tremel's wall installation--a painting unto itself. She does not paint from these, rather, they play the role of another kind of painting.

More Tremel. This work has its own logic and terms.

Tremel painting on paper. The ability to remain open-ended...

A pilllow work. She incorporates little cloth pillows in her work.

Elliot Markel: new sculpture.

Plaster, encrusted in the netting. Markel works in Maine and, well, Bushwick.

Some fabulous paintings of Maine.

Elliot Markel sculpture. Like Tremel, work with a logic unique to itself. I think of fishnet, shells, the detritus seen walking on shore, little sea animals...

Parallel Art Space. What I Like About You. Organized by Julie Torres. Look at this Valerie Brennan painting!

Paired paintings: Yadir Quintana, Sean Montgomery (thanks Anne Russinof). Click for more about What I Like About You.

Identified by Anne Russinof on FB as Karl Bielik on left and Henry Samelson on right.

Again, Russinof on the job: Lael Marshall on left and Erin Lawlor on right.

Cynthia Lin, 1717 Troutman.

April Childers--oversized underpants. 1717 Troutman.



Artist at 1717 Troutman.

Alison Evans? at 1717 Troutman.

Funny links to Matta, Jon Pylypchuck.

A quiet walk down tree-lined streets to wrap up the day at Norte Maar.

Leslie Kerby's Portrait of Fern, which gets Fern's personality so well! Look at that lovely shape!

Maria Calandra, a moodier side of Fern...Fern as a mountain.

Daniel Wiener, Leslie Kerby and in front, Wendy Klemperer. I also visited Klemperer, Cindy Tower and another artist (before breaking out the iPhone).


Today's Bushwick sojourn began on Van Eyck St. at Debbie Brown's new studio and gallery destination, Ten Eyck (Read more here) (again, before breaking out the iPhone). From Ten Eyck, onward to Rock St., curated by Debbie Brown and Lesley Heller. The private street is owned by Boar's Head and opened for the BOS weekend. Yellow sculpture, Emily Wieskopf, behind (green) Carol Salmanson.

Rock St. was a fantastic show of large sculpture. Ben Godward seen here.
