Sue's Stupendous Artist Meetup

Like-minded Spirits Meld
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."

back to Manhattan.

  1. Well, you both look lovely even though pooped! I'd have been so energized by such a day around so much inspiration. It looks like a candy store for artists! I've always worked in hand-lettering and pen and ink illustration and for some reason color has always been a challenge for me. It's so refreshing being around bold colors and strong graphics.

  2. What a wonderful day out! I hopped over from Sue's facebook and I'm so glad I did! Your dress is beautiful and Sue's flat and studio are so fascinating I could stare for hours. I love the idea of a show and tell; I often do them with artist friends here in Cornwall and it's such an inspiring experience. Very glad to find your blog. Lally

    1. Hi Lally,
