This blog helps me keep track of things that I am interested for myself. I can see from all the email coming in that I'll be doing some studio visits down on the Lower East Side. Scroll down for other open studios, shows and talks going on in May. The following information is from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.

"Join us in the studios of Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's Workspace artists- and writers-in-residence for an opening reception, open hours, and a reading! Representing all media and genres–from painting and sculpture to installation, photography, video, and performance; from poetry and fiction to playwriting and creative non-fiction–artists and writers will present the work they've been making since the start of their residencies in September 2010."
