Alumni and Faculty Engaged in the Local Art Community

There has been a lot of activity amongst New York Studio School alumni and faculty recently in the New York art scene.  Below, get a glimpse of what’s been happening.

This past weekend the DUMBO Arts Festival drew art lovers and artists to the trendy neighborhood for openings, performances, installations and parties.  Greg Whyte, Rochelle Goldberg, and Saskia Sutherland, in residence on Jay Street, opened the Studio School sculpture space to the public for the Open Studios.  Niki Singleton and Ophir Agassi, MFA alumni, participated in the Triangle Arts Association Workshop Open Studios.  The artists spent two weeks working intensely with a group of other dedicated artists at the building on Main Street.  Niki’s installation included plastic, fabric covered found objects and garbage, recorded sounds and drawing and painting to create a startling ‘underwater’ environment.  Malado Baldwin screened a short film underneath the arched underpass of the Manhattan Bridge during the festival.  The crowds poured into the curved space to see light shows, installations and films projected onto the stone.
Recent MFA alum Robert Anderson will be holding a one night only exhibition and performance entitled DENIZENS at 362 East 69th Street on Tuesday Evening from 6-9 PM.

If you haven’t read it already, read this great interview with Studio School painting instructor Clintel Steed.

The exhibition in the Main Gallery on 8th Street, Fran O’Neill:Recent Work, has received great reviews from Artcritical and Mario Nave’s Blog.

Painting Instructor Elisa Jensen showed work at the Governors Island Art Fair, including luminous paintings of local garbage collectors and figures from her neighborhood.
Be sure to RSVP for our MFA Info Session and Open House on October 27th!
