Over on Governors Island……
This weekend’s craft workshop: Toy Making
Brought to you by:
Caryn Cast’s drawings and paintings depict imaginative psychoscapes that reveal fragments of odd, yet sometimes eerily familiar stories. She creates them by juxtaposing a character captured in a train of thought with a fantastic but faintly realistic background. She often paints from dreams, as they represent a quality she desires to capture – a snapshot of the complexity of the human mind.
Born in Mexico City, Miriam Castillo is a freelance graphic designer and illustrator based in New York. Her hand-drawn illustrations are creative whimsy, fantasy, and exploration: from wooded creatures and frocked damsels to lacey loops in repetition. She is an antiquarian, fascinated by Victorian design and anything antiqued.
Badass Dog Adoptions (MAYBE, but they’re a good organization anyway, look them up!)
Come by and meet your new best friend! Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue will bring their best dogs looking for forever homes for you to hang out with. Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue is composed of a network of fosters and volunteers that work together to rescue sweet, loving, adoptable dogs from high kill, rural shelters in the southern U.S. states. We find the best dogs that were destined for death – we then vaccinate, spay/neuter, provide preventative flea and heartworm care and transport them to Brooklyn where we can find them loving forever homes.
