News & Notes

Spring 2017

I’m thrilled to announce the 2017 ArtLab Gowanus season. Thanks to our jury of myself, Natasia Sidharta, Wendy Adringa, & Abby Subak for helping to award from a pool of applicants this roster of talented local artists to instruct the workshops. ArtLab Gowanus was made possible by a grant from Councilman Brad Landers office.

I’m thrilled to be a part of “The Four Seasons” a show at Village West Gallery curated by, Robinson Holloway. Opening Receptions: May 20th 5:30 – 7:30 & May 21 noon – 3 pm


03/01 – 03/31 Interchurch Showcase Gallery

Opening reception: Thursday, March 9th, 5:00-7 pm


Jessica Dalrymple’s show “Urbanscapes” exhibits paintings that celebrate “nature in the city”. The show includes landscapes of NYC shorelines inspired by past, present, and future imagery such as historic salt marshes along Brooklyn’s Gowanus Bay, apple orchards beside Newtown Creek estuary, and futuristic “green” solutions atop present day infastructure. Also on view are zoomed-in depictions of native and non-native plant and animal species the artist encountered while developing this series. Finally, renewable energy landscapes round out the show and speak to the theme of urban environmentalism which underlies the body of work.

Paint, drawing implements, photographs, and magazine clippings will be at your finger tips to create a fresh new vision of the Gowanus landscape.
