The Sketchbook Project 2015: Surprise Extra Venues: Roselle, New Jersey and Governor’s Island Art Fair, New York


Splash_1.1

Just when I thought The Sketchbook Project 2015 tour of the US was over, I received an email telling me it would be touring to two additional venues.

The first was to Warinanco Park, Roselle, New Jersey. Unfortunately, that was today so it’s too late for an advance shout out about that.  My little book of eco prints, however, must have felt at home in the middle of all that wild nature.

AH Coop 2015 16 and 17 30 March 2015It’s not too late – if you’re in New York – or going – for the second of the two extra venues. My little book will be available at Governor’s Island Art Fair.  Here are the dates:

Saturday, September 19 | 11:00 – 6:00
Sunday, September 20 | 11:00 – 6:00
Saturday, September 26 | 11:00 – 6:00
Sunday, September 27 | 11:00 – 6:00

From the art fair’s web site:

“Indulge your curiosity as you explore the abandoned military barracks of Governors Island Art Fair, 100 singular rooms of painting, photography, sculpture, installation, video, and sound art. Run by artists, for artists, New York’s largest independent exhibition enters its 8th year this fall. Once again GIAF organizers, 4heads, have sifted through a sea of creative proposals from New York and around the world, giving 100 of the best a full room each, in which to wreak havoc as they see fit. GIAF also features independent galleries–encouraging the dialogue between artists and art dealers.  And outside on the grass, live music, large-scale sculpture, food, drink and more. Can’t wait until September?  4heads’ Artists in Residence keep their studio doors open every weekend, all summer long on the island. Get your culture fix on Governors Island – there’s enough art here to start a new country.

Governors Island Art Fair is organized by 4heads, a New York City nonprofit organization created by artists for artists. Their goals are to foster community by offering space for artists, to provide arts-education for the underserved, and to expose hidden culture.  4heads supports a collaborative DIY spirit while catalyzing dialogue between artists and people from all walks of life.”

If you’re going, please check out my sketchbook. And let me know.

I’d like to know.
