Greenpoint Open Studios - Make a Clay Pierog For the Pierogi Project Archive

Added on by Bea Wolert ADMIN.

In alignment with GOS, I will be hosting Pierogi Project, a pierogi clay making participatory project aiming to capture stories of a food of unknown exact origin. On both Saturday and Sunday, 6/8 and 6/9 between 1 and 4pm, visitors can drop-by my studio and make a clay pierog. This is on a first-come, first-served basis until supplies last. I will also be collecting photographs, videos, audio stories and ephemera related to the traditions of pierogi making. Each contribution will be numbered and logged into the archive.

When mapping your destinations, be sure to include 67 West Street, Suite #304 located at the historic Greenpoint Terminal Market. View current drawings and sculptures, sample authentic pierogi and contribute to the archive! Visit Greenpoint Open Studios for more information to help map out your visits!


TouchStones Created For Wolf's Lane Park, Pelham, NY

Added on by Bea Wolert ADMIN.

I have been invited by Pelham Art Center to do an outdoor installation at the newly renovated Wolf's Lane Park. This exhibition launches the new sculpture garden and introduces the public to the park's recent renovations. My exhibition, "TouchStones" opens Saturday, October 7th from 12:00-1:30pm, followed by an a demonstration of the process from 1:30-2:15pm.

A touchstone is a reference point from which other things can be evaluated. This work was inspired by the way people interact with their community and public park space. The work is meant to highlight how Wolf's Lane Park is a touchstone for the community. The two large-scale “TouchStones” use materials of various textures intended for the participant to interact with by viewing and touching the textures and experiencing the different temperatures. I am interested in how the reflective nature of the materials will engage with the existing natural elements and the changing light. The colors will be in dialogue with the changing seasons; the surface will change over time; the public will engage and refer back to the stones once the sculptures are removed – and the memory of the installation will serve as another form of touchstone. 

The work is installed across from the Metro North Railroad Pelham Station, at 1st Street and Wolf’s Lane in the Village of Pelham. The exhibition will remain on view through January 6th, 2018. The opening coincides with the center's weekend long festival, "Artsfest"Click here for more details on the event schedule.

Public Art in the Park is Pelham Art Center's newest program to promote free arts access for the public, and is an extension of its established Public Art in the Courtyard, a series of 3-4 sculpture and installation exhibitions annually.  Located at the corner of Wolfs Lane and 1st Street, and adjacent to the Metro North Pelham train station, Public Art in the Park is a component of the newly renovated Wolfs Lane Park. The sculpture garden area, with signage and attractive seating, will allow the public to enjoy the works of various artists throughout the seasons.  As well as providing another reason for visitors and residents to visit the park, the public art program will bring the works of many artists to the public eye. The specially designated arts area will also allow Pelham Art Center to expand its impact in providing more free arts access and experiences to the public.

Memories of a Summer Garden in Bloom, 2016

Please join me Friday, September 2nd at Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum in the Bronx for a Garden Centennial Exhibition. I have a handmade ceramic tile piece installed in the gardens entitled "Memories of a Summer Garden in Bloom". I studied the colors of plants and flowers in bloom during the summer found onsite at Bartow-Pell's gardens.Replicating those colors in ceramics memorializes a specific time and engages the viewer to reflect on the phases of growth.

The opening reception is free and runs from 5-6pm followed by a performance by the Brooklyn Bluegrass Collective from 6-8pm. Click here for more information on artists, trolley service and tickets for the music. 

The exhibition is on view through November 6th. Look out for more news in the Fall on a show at BLAM Projects in L.A. and an upcoming open studio.

November 15 - December 21, 2013 
Opening Reception: Friday, November 15, 6-8pm
Organized by: Michelle Levy, Lauren Bierly and Claire Barliant 

EFA Project Space announces A Necessary Shift, a special exhibition and event series highlighting the activities of the Shift residency. Formerly titled Residency for Arts-Workers as Artists, Shift is the first residency to support the artistic development of artists who work for New York City arts organizations and play significant roles through their service to the art community. This exhibition is an overview of work created by former and current residents, celebrating the residency's growing impact, now in its fourth year of development. The new official name is a gesture of commitment to the longevity of this important project.

Artwork included in A Necessary Shift reflects the benefit of giving artists/arts-workers a chance to recharge their artistic practice and realign it with their commitment to advocating for other artists and cultural producers. Since its inception, Shift residency has provided myriad opportunities for professional and creative growth. Several artists are collaborating on projects and events for this exhibition, as a result of meeting through the residency: Jonathan Durham andFrancis Estrada conceived a joint installation inspired by the spatial movements of martial arts; Felicity Hogan and Theresa Marchetta worked together on a series of paintings; and Elizabeth HambyDouglas Paulson, and Hatuey Ramos-Fermín arranged a bicycle tour through the economic underbelly of New York City.Most of the works, as well as the performances and events, were created by the artists specifically for this show.

Fifty percent of all proceeds from works sold during the exhibition will go towards supporting this essential residency.

In addition, EFA Project Space will host a number of events organized by former and current Shift residents:    

  • Evening of performance through sound and video with Chad Stayrookand Roddy SchrockThursday, November 21, 6:30-8:30pm
