Minds at Sue's Open Studio
Put together a group of artists who think more is never enough, led by the Queen of More, Sue Kreitzman, and what do you get? An afternoon supplying enough inspiration guaranteed to last months, if not years.
Sue Kreitzman divides her time between two cities: London and New York. She has just arrived in New York, and hosted an Open Studio in her way-uptown aerie, which included the charming idea of each invited artist doing a "Show & Tell."
