Art, Food, Wine… What a Weekend!

2009 Sonya Studio Stroll, Saturday/Sunday, May 16-17 (Rain or Shine)

2009 Sonya Studio Stroll, Saturday/Sunday, May 16-17 (Rain or Shine)

The Annual SONYA STUDIO STROLL, showcasing more than 40 artists and their work, plus several public art projects and the PRATT sculpture garden open to the public, is to be held this Saturday and Sunday, May 16 and 17, 2009. It’s FREE… self-guided so you go at your own pace… and is a great way to see the variety of talent in the visual arts that has long made Fort Greene famous. Some art you’ll see in the artist’s own working studios. Other art might be on display in the parlor of their home. And still others are on display in galleries or in retail stores. You can browse like you are visiting one of New York’s great gallery districts or museums (though one lined with historic brownstones and great restaurants, sidewalk cafes and shops!). You can also say to yourself… “that would be great to have on my wall at home!” — because much of the art will be available for purchase.

For a MAP and LISTING of the artists, visit sonyaonline.org.

DEKALB AVENUE with all its restaurants, pubs, cafes and shops runs through the heart of the tour route, with about half the locations above Dekalb and the other half just below it. So download the map and artists’ listings, pick out the art that sounds interesting (and a couple of extras just to broaden your horizons!), plan your route and know that you have lots of opportunities to stop for a break along the way (that’s where the food & wine comes in).

FYI: The artist’s locations are open from 12 noon – 6:00PM on both Saturday and Sunday, rain or shine.

Anders Knutsson/Prints and Paintings
March 16 – April 18, 2009
From the artist’s statement: “These paintings and prints are like portraits – homages to particularly fascinating individual trees I have met. Many grow around Brooklyn. I also travel to find trees that compel and challenge me as a painter…”
