I went to Open Studios at Erector Square in New Haven yesterday and really enjoyed seeing different artists' works. The building is huge with many art studios through out the complex. Did not photograph enough, too busy talking with artists and looking at good art. Open Studios will run Sunday Sept. 26, 2010 and other weekends are Oct. 2-3, Oct. 9-10 and for detailed maps and further information go to www.artspacenh.org or call 203- 772-2709. As a side note, parking was not a problem for me at Erector Square as it is usually in downtown New Haven.
The second photograph above is Corina Alvarezdelugo's work, with Ishita Bandyo's work in the background. (I apologize to Ishita, the close up of Ishita's paintings came out blurred due to my camera shake.)
Please go to Ishita's website to see her paintings: www.ishitabandyo.com// to see a sample of her beautiful mixed media paintings and read about her. And to see and learn more about Corina's artwork go to: www.corinadotdash.com/
This was a fun day and I made some new friends. Here are a few of these new artists I met, saw their work and enjoyed meeting them, including: Fethi Meghelli at www.fethimeghelli.com/ , and Maria Lara- Whelpley at www.marialara.net. Thanks again, to all the artists for all their hard work, conversation and great artwork. Please visit, the Oct. weekend will be in another section of New Haven so go to ARTSPACE website or if in New Haven area pick up a New Haven Advocate paper that is the map and official guide.
