Open Studio at Textile Arts Center


Saturday, May 14, 2016

On Saturday I went to the Textile Arts Center's Studio open house. Summary: stimulating, inspiring, free, and fun. We all know or have heard about Brooklyn's energy and hipness: here's a place to experience it. The young artists were completely accessible and friendly, and were ready and willing to talk about their work -- and mine! What could be better for an amateur like me.

I was able to speak with two artists: Victoria Manganiello, and Jamie Hart Israelow; I'm including photos of their work.


The Center offers an extensive schedule of classes on all types of fiber arts. Check their website for details.
