Attention, New Yorkers! There will be a wonderful “Art Fest” tomorrow, Saturday July 28th, in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. The talented Gaby D’Alessandro will be showing off her latest illustrations and selling tote bags, greeting cards, prints, and magnets alongside her friends, jewelry designers Anabelle Colon and Hwayoung Cho. Among other things, this lovely event will be held at the Way Station, a notoriously cool ‘steampunk’ bar with a really distinctive atmosphere. Here is the write up:
I am pleased to invite you all to “Treasures of a Summer Night”, a Brooklyn art fest featuring jewelry designers Anabelle ColÃ³n and Hwayoung Cho, and illustrator Gabriella D’Alessandro. This collective of three young New York based artists warmly welcomes you to their jewelry and illustration exhibition on Saturday 28 July, from 4 to 7 p.m. The afternoon event will take place at the Way Station in Brooklyn, Prospect Heights: 638 Washington Avenue, http://waystationbk.blogspot.com/.
This art fest is not only an exhibition or fair, it will be a midsummer gathering in a jazz/burlesque bar setting. The hosts will be providing delicious appetizers, while the bar has happy hour the entire afternoon. For those people arriving between 4 and 5 p.m. (we hope all of you), there will be an early bird raffle where Anabelle, Hwayoung and Gabriella will each give away a piece to the luckiest person of the moment.
For those wanting to make it into a Brooklyn day and night, there are plenty of restaurants around for dining afterwards (The Spot, Amorina, Bar Corvo, etc). A live band, “The Comic Tales of Tragic Heartbreak” will play at the Way Station starting at 10 p.m.
In short, come and check out Anabelle, Hwayoung and Gabriella’s latest jewelry and illustration creations (you may find a piece you can’t resist for a loved one or yourself).
