The entrance is located on Lorraine Street between Court and Clinton. This is the big red and blue TI Storage building, with a bright red water tower on top. There is a thriving arts community on the third floor of this building, including the art gallery and more than 100 art studios. It’s a hidden gem! The closest subway stop is the Smith and 9th St. station, F and G trains. (From the Smith and 9th subway station, turn right after exiting the station. Continue walking on 9th St. until you reach Court St., then turn left onto Court St. Continue walking on Court St. under the overpass, past Hamilton Ave., until you reach Lorraine St. Turn right onto Lorraine St. The door to the art studio complex is located street side on Lorraine St., and has a blue awning indicating TI Art Studios and Sweet Lorraine gallery.)

You can make a day of your trek to the area and visit nearby Red Hook locations like Van Brunt St., Waterfront Barge Museum, Louis Valentino, Jr. Park and Pier, Brooklyn Crab, Fairway Market, the famous food trucks at the Red Hook Ball Fields, and more. There are great restaurants like Buttermilk Channel, Frankie’s, and Prime Meats on nearby Court St. You can also buy a Stockholm at nearby Ikea (which has a water taxi to Manhattan).

“A space exists while it simultaneously does not, in an ode to imagination. We experience multitude spaces, from mental, emotional, and subconscious interiors to physical spaces and public presentations. These paintings reflect ambiguities of existence, for while the forms are drawn in a frontal manner, often touching and acknowledging the edge of the canvas and emphasizing flatness; the color, value, and scale alone create a feeling of three dimensional space. Limitations are imposed, rejecting most traditional means of creating an illusion of space on a two-dimensional surface via overlap, cast shadows, linear perspective, and more. Chromatic energy is persistent. Is color a door to a new dimension?”
