“We are very excited that there are almost 80 artists participating from photographers, painters,
printers, mosaicists, textile artists, collagists, sculptors and jewelers.”
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 25, 2012
For four days every April, New Yorkers are invited to visit the captivating world of some of Manhattan’s best artists. Now in its 16th year, The TriBeCa Open Artist Studio Tour (TOAST) is an open invitation to the public to take a free, self-guided tour through artists’ studios in TriBeCa. TOAST attendees are able to visit the artists’ studios, view their work and talk to the artists themselves. Those who take the tour will also have the chance to purchase work directly from the artists, helping to support them in the pursuit of their craft.
“It is a great opportunity for the public to meet neighborhood artists in their actual studio space,” said Ruth McLaughlin, treasurer of TOAST and a participating artist. “We are very excited that there are almost 80 artists participating from photographers, painters, printers, mosaicists, textile artists, collagists, sculptors and jewelers,” explains Shawn Washburn, a painter and president of TOAST.
TOAST is a non-profit, artist-run organization whose mission is to empower the working artists of TriBeCa, while providing an educational opportunity for the public. TOAST was established to produce the annual open studio tour, and to provide artists in TriBeCa a year-round community network. This year TOAST is launching the premier edition of TOAST, a biannual magazine featuring not only the art walk map but also articles about our artists and their artistic interaction with the world, the city and TriBeCa.
