What to do?

08/12/2010

What do you do when it’s the end of the summer and most of Chelsea is closed for the month? Don’t fret, there are still thing to be done and art to be seen. Try setting up a studio visit with a favorite artist. I checked out Erik Pauhrizi’s open studio and I got a special preview of artwork for his show next spring. He’s an inventive artist that uses nontraditional ways to express himself through his artwork.

open house for Erik Pauhrizi

Or, something else you can do is go to some art museums. This past Saturday was First Saturday at the Brooklyn Museum and on these nights it’s way more than just your normal museum. The Andy Warhol exhibit was very educational and the dance party out back was a blast.

So if you’re thinking that there isn’t anything to do in the art world this August–then think again. There is always an exhibit to see or a studio to visit. You just need to know where to look.

I met artist Erik Pauhrizi about a month ago and am real excited to see his work. Check out his blog, pauhrizi.blogspot.com ,and come to the open house tonight.
