Art in Dumbo

The Art of Paul Santoleri
This past Saturday we went to Dumbo. That's an acronym for Down Under the Brooklyn Bridge.
Our friend, and Tyler grad, Paul Santoleri, was having an open studio at his space on Jay Street which houses the Marie Walsh Sharpe Program. Paul has a residency there for this year.

 This is Paul's giant installation in his studio.
Paul is a great muralists, and has done many fantastic
murals in his native Philadelphia, as well
as around the world.

 Energy roils out of the work.
One may detect nature or industrial forms.
Paul's colors and lines are passionate.

 A view of the Manhattan Bridge from Paul's studio.
 A plant form will probably be assimilated into a drawing.

 On the left, a photo of an oil container painted
by Paul in South Philly.

in Philadelphia.

I love her socks and shoes.
I have a pair of acid green socks that I
bought at a store in Philadelphia called Asta de Blue
about 25 years ago. Love them.
I unwittingly wore the perfect camouflage dress to 
Paul's Open Studio. 
 Buildings in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
I love the neighborhood. It reminds me of
Olde City, Philly, where we lived
in the 70's.
