Emerging Artists International’s "NYC
Citywide Open Studios Tour" shifts its focus to Brooklyn
Participating studios will be open to the public, for free, from
11 am to 6 pm on Oct. 22 and Oct. 23.
Among the 331 Brooklyn artists featured in this weekend’s show-and-tell
is Park Sloper Judith Miller, who says she has been making her
"primal, totem-like and often whimsical sacred staffs; one-of-a-kind,
hand-carved walking sticks; and wearable art" for four years.
Miller’s work will be on display in studio 1R, located at 446
Bergen St., between Fifth and Flatbush avenues.
Williamsburg artist Jennifer Delilah (whose 72-inch by 54-inch
oil on canvas "Wild Horses 3" is pictured at left)
will be showing her works in studio 309, located at 151 Kent
Ave. at North Fifth Street.
"Forced into unnatural states, [animals and flora] stand
in for the human animal, longing for freedom in cages of our
invention and perception, artifacts of our destructive relationship
with nature and ultimately with ourselves," Delilah says
of her large-scale paintings.

work and downloadable maps, visit www.nycopenstudios.org.
