ON AUGUST 10: JAIMIE WALKER - "Abstract Art for Your Apartment"
Bio: After graduating from Pratt Institute with a BFA in Communications Design, Walker was swiftly one of the pioneering artists who made the derelict and rather dangerous neighborhood DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) her home. Walker was at the heart of a new generation re-inventing and re-instituting the hard-earned 'Live/Work' way of life that followed in the footsteps of revolutionary artists in 70's SOHO. Much like that pioneer community, Walker’s collage designs and their imperfections embrace lost property, repurposed landscapes, and objects found unwanted by the wayside. The leading roles are naturally reserved for the majestic industrial power of the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges. 2018 marked twenty years of Jaimie Walker showing and selling her art right here in Dumbo.
Learn to use art materials in unconventional ways with Brooklyn’s own Jaimie Walker. Join Jaimie as she leads us through creating layered abstract works you’ll be proud to hang up on your walls.
