This weekend is your last chance to view the spectacular spring shows presented by the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coaltion (BWAC). Check out the historic pier on the Red Hook waterfront, packed with an extraordinary variety of art on two floors in three shows: Rites of Spring / Recycle 2017 / Wide Open 8, plus the “Really-Really Affordable Art Salon.”

With performances both days and a closing auction beginning at 4pm on Sunday, you have lots of chances to discover new art and meet great people. I’ll be there Sunday – hope to see you there!

I’m delighted to be included in Recycle 2017, presented by the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC). Curated by Harriet Taub of Materials for the Arts, this exhibit features 65 pieces that reimagine cast-off, discarded, and repurposed materials.
This piece is part of my new Sea Change series, which transforms fishing tackle, rope, and recycled plastics into textiles and assemblages to consider the parallels between the natural world and the interior world of the mind and how they both may heal from damage wrought by carelessness or greed.
Recycle 2017 is on view every weekend May 13 through June 18, 1-6pm with an opening reception this Saturday.

As I walked around the show yesterday, I was amazed at the brilliantly innovative use of materials and thought-provoking work of my fellow artists. I hope you will come check it out!
