A special exhibit called Covello@PS109 Making Art Work will be featured at El Barrio’s Artspace PS109 from Friday June 21, 2019 – Sunday, June 30, 2019. The instillation displays stunning artwork by older East Harlem residents.
The exhibit will feature paintings, prints, mixed media works, ceramics, and textiles created at the Carter Burden/Leonard Covello Senior Center (Covello) in East Harlem. More than one hundred pieces created by seniors who take classes in Covello’s Marking Art Work program, as well as artwork by Covello’s teaching artists and both current and former artists in residence will be on display.
The public is invited to attend workshops led by Covello’s teaching artists where they will learn the art of printmaking, mixed media drawing, clay and/or jewelry.
The exhibition and workshops are free and open to the public. Select pieces of work made by the seniors will be available for purchase at a pop-up shop on site on Wednesday June 26th from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm. Proceeds from these sales will go directly to the seniors who made them.
