"Under-Cover" Opening

Wednesday night was the Opening Reception for "Under-Cover," our winter exhibition.

We enjoyed a fantastic turn out with guests packing our small space to see the 21 new works by Jane Kaufmann shown alongside an amazing group of 21 small quilts by 16 quilt artists (including many from Brooklyn) -- Ludmila Aristova, Heidi Atwood, Denise Carbonell, Susanne Clawson, Linda Cline, Mandy Gerth, Kevin Kosbab, Ruth Marchese, Buddy McLaughlin, Diana Robinson, Merrilyn San Soucie, Dorie Blaisdell Schwarz, Pamela Sparr, Steven Stichter, Jeanne Williamson, and Erin Wilson.

All works in "Under-Cover" are on view (and, of course, for sale) on Greenjeans' website here.

Better yet, come over to Park Slope and see the show in person!

Thank you to everyone who came and for making it a festive, warm, and bright event!

Enjoy the pictures...

We invited this burgeoning local artist and admirer of Kaufmann's work to come early and meet Jane. Here she is with her parents getting a first look.

The exhibition also includes quilts by Steven Stichter, whose work helped inspire the show, and Erin Wilson, who co-selected the quilts with us.

Guests looked...

... mingled...

... and looked some more.

On Thursday, Jane, Grace Youngren (Jane's traveling buddy who is also an artist) and I went to MoMA to see Lucien Freud print show. Then we hopped into a cab and drove through Central Park for lunch at...

... the exquisite Cafe Sabarsky at the Neue Galerie. We took in the Klimt show on view there -- paintings, personal effects, and llots of amazing drawings. And then returned to Brooklyn on the subway.

It was a lovely day after an marvelous evening. (Thank you for coming to NYC for the opening, Jane!!)
