The Brooklyn Paper

Emerging Artists International’s "NYC Citywide Open Studios Tour" shifts its focus to Brooklyn this weekend.

Participating studios will be open to the public, for free, from 11 am to 6 pm on Oct. 22 and Oct. 23.

Among the 331 Brooklyn artists featured in this weekend’s show-and-tell is Park Sloper Judith Miller, who says she has been making her "primal, totem-like and often whimsical sacred staffs; one-of-a-kind, hand-carved walking sticks; and wearable art" for four years.

Miller’s work will be on display in studio 1R, located at 446 Bergen St., between Fifth and Flatbush avenues.

Williamsburg artist Jennifer Delilah (whose 72-inch by 54-inch oil on canvas "Wild Horses 3" is pictured at left) will be showing her works in studio 309, located at 151 Kent Ave. at North Fifth Street.

"Forced into unnatural states, [animals and flora] stand in for the human animal, longing for freedom in cages of our invention and perception, artifacts of our destructive relationship with nature and ultimately with ourselves," Delilah says of her large-scale paintings.
