Visit me during Open Studios this Weekend!

My studio building, (which is home to many painters and sculptors as well as a few other photographers) will be participating in an Open Studios weekend during May 30-31st, put together by the Long Island City Artists, of which I am a member. The public is invited to freely tour the buildings and enter many of the artists studios on Saturday and Sunday from 1-6pm. I will be there with my doors open and new work up on the walls!

It’s a lot of fun and you will definately be inspired by what you see. If you’ve never toured an open studios area before I highly recommend it! It’s really interesting to see the wildly different types of work being produced by NYC artists and most people are very happy to chat with you about what they are doing, how they do it, and what it means to them… Many of us will have work for sale– at NON-gallery prices of course, cut out the middleman, that’s what I say.

If you’re in the neighborhood you should know there is a deal for 5$ Margaritas and Mojito’s (and 10$ Pitchers of Sangria–now that’s a bargain) at La Vuelta Bistro, in building #7 on the map of the open studios…or 10-43 44th Drive. If you catch me at the end of Saturday Keith and I’ll probably be heading there myself at about 6:15pm! For Directions to my studio click up on the tab at left, or go to Hopstop and type in my address to get the simplest directions (including a map of how to WALK from the subway stops– so useful!): I’m at 43-01 22nd Street (Between 44th AVE and 43rd AVE– take note that they are Aves and not Roads or Streets or Drives, trust me…it can be confusing.)

Maura and Basha’s Engagement Portraits

Maura and Basha are having their wedding celebration on July 18th at the Seaman’s Church Institute Headquarters in downtown Manhattan- a very interesting venue that I look forward to shooting in. The theme will be nautical and after getting to know them I have no doubt the whole affair will be delightfully well put together. Yesterday we shot their engagement portraits in and around Madison Square Park– which they requested for the session. I’d never shot portraits around there before though I knew it was a lovely park… turns out to be a great spot to shoot and we got some nice city-vibe shots in the streets surrounding it as well. These two have been together a long time, and it shows! They were a blast to photograph– so sweet and full of loving energy! Here are some of my favorites…01Maura&BashaEngagement_SarahTewPhotography
