Norte Maar, Bushwick Open Studios, Bushwick

BOS2013 is the biggest one yet! There are 598 spaces registered and a map that stretches the geographic lines that make up the creative neighborhood of Bushwick, Brooklyn. We spent our Memorial Day Weekend studying yet another year’s daunting event program and came up with a relatively short survey of events, exhibitions, and studios that should not be missed… or at least those that we’ll not miss!

Norte Maar is pleased to present Giacometti and a selection of contemporary drawings, January 26-February 24, 2013. The exhibition features a single drawing (double sided) by the great modern master Alberto Giacometti. The work is on loan from a private collection, New York, and will be the source of discussion in a show as it is juxtaposed with and against the work of ten contemporary artists.

This is not the first time Norte Maar has brought historic material to Brooklyn. The Boys of Bushwick exhibition which open in April 2011 and featured the illustrations of Richard Haines, included loans from a work by Paul Cadmus and Pavel Tchelitchew. Additionally, Norte Maar has been noted for juxtaposing established artists with emerging talent as evident in it’s To be Lady exhibition currently on view in New York City. The show includes historic work by Louise Nevelson, Alice Neel, Louise Bourgeios, with work by mid-career and rising stars.

Authors and Artists celebrates Cinco de Mayo!

For our April installment of Authors and Artists, we made brightly colored Dahlia flowers-Mexico’s National flower in celebration of Cinco de Mayo (the holiday commemorating the triumph of a small Mexican army over French forces in the 1862 battle at Puebla).

After Norte Maar’s Director, Jason Andrew, read a short story illustrating the vibrant and festive history and traditions surrounding Cinco de Mayo, artist and project assistant Andrew Szobody lead an instructional workshop on the making of the Dahlia flower out of folded and cut crepe paper. We discovered that the Dahlia Flower is used to decorate parade floats and dances and now we have our own decorating our own homes!

Authors and Artists is a free monthly program that invites local professional artists, musicians, dancers, craft makers, architects, etc, to teach and explore books and the arts with the children and families in our neighborhood of Bushwick, Brooklyn. Authors and Artists is presented in collaboration with the Bushwick Library and is sponsored in part by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs administered by the Brooklyn Arts Council, Inc. (BAC).
