You’re invited to the Brooklyn Navy Yard Holiday Market, where I’ll pack up artwork from my studio and set up at a booth Saturday and Sunday, December 1-2 from 12-6pm. I’ll have framed archival prints from my Chinatown series, like the Nom Wah Tea Parlor gouache painting pictured above, new watercolor paintings, and prints from my “Nick’s Lunchbox Service” series available.

Please stop by and say hi in Building 77, and check out the other three dozen artists and local small businesses based in and around the Brooklyn Navy Yard that will be at the holiday market.

By the way, the Brooklyn Navy Yard is home to over 400 manufacturing and creative businesses representing over two dozen different industries. From woodworking and metal fabrication to fashion and electronics, the Yard is a diverse ecosystem where thousands of products are designed, built, crafted and constructed each year.

The Brooklyn Navy Yard is usually off-limits to the public, but for one day this weekend, more than 40 artists, designers and workshops are opening their doors as part of Open House New York, including me. 

You’re welcome to visit my Brooklyn Navy Yard studio on Saturday, October 14 from 12 to 5 pm to see current gouache paintings in progress, photo prints from the “Nick’s Lunchbox Service” daily-drawing series, and finished pieces from my archive. Open House New York is free and no advanced registration is required.

BLDG 92 is located at the intersection of Carlton and Flushing Avenues at 63 Flushing Avenue in Brooklyn, NY. I’m in Building 280 on the sixth floor, just a short walk to the west from the starting point. A shuttle bus will be running throughout the day between locations.

Jane Jacobs turns 100!

May 4, 2016

Jane Jacobs turns 100 today! Her ideas about the strength of neighborhoods are relevant to my work today. Now over 850 consecutive daily drawings into my Nick’s Lunchbox Service project, many of those are in historic Greenwich Village, part of what Jacobs fought to save. Thank you Jane!

Also, thank you to everyone on Twitter appreciating the drawing of her building on Hudson Street that was exhibited in my Literary Greenwich Village show earlier this year at the NYPL’s Hudson Park Library, within the neighborhood.

Opening Reception: Tuesday, February 2, 5-7pm
Artist Talk: Thursday, February 18, 6-7pm

Literary Greenwich Village, an exhibition by artist Nick Golebiewski, features photographed ink drawings of historic literary sites in Greenwich Village. In his distinctive style of pen-and-ink sketch situated precisely within a photograph’s frame, Golebiewski’s exhibition captures authors’ and poets’ buildings and apartments, all within walking distance of the Hudson Park Library branch of the New York Public Library. More than a dozen pieces are included, picturing sites of note related to such writers as Mark Twain, William Burroughs, E. E. Cummings, Jane Jacobs, Edna St. Vincent Millay, James Baldwin, Emma Lazarus, and Marianne Moore. Literary Greenwich Village distills the literary history within the Hudson Park Library community, reviving memories of a literary lineage tied together by a shared neighborhood over the decades.

The drawings in Literary Greenwich Village are selections from Golebiewski’s project “Nick’s Lunchbox Service.” Comprised of drawings created, photographed and exhibited online daily, “Nick’s Lunchbox Service” entered its third year in 2016. Golebiewski creates a sketch once per day and photographs the sketchbook in front of the subject matter, be it a building or city-scene, as if it were a filter dropped in front of the actual object.

Literary Greenwich Village is on view at the Hudson Park Library of the New York Public Library at 66 Leroy Street, where the exhibition runs February 1-29, 2016.

Library Hours: M 11am-6pm, T 12-7pm, W 11am-6pm, Th 12-7pm, F 10am-5pm, S 10am-5pm, Su Closed
