Open Studio: Rowan Renee￼
November 5, 2022 , 12:00pm – 4:30pm
Green-Wood’s artist in residence, Rowan Renee, invites the public to explore their studio space and get a sneak peek of in-progress works for The Perimeter Path, a site-specific installation planned for Historic Chapel next spring. Rowan’s research at Green-Wood has focused on the Cemetery’s public lots, creating work that responds to the memorial architecture for those interred in these historically affordable sections.
Price: Free. Registration is not required, just stop by!
For the project, Rowan has drawn on photographs and burial records from Green-Wood’s archives, as well as materials sourced from the Cemetery itself. Their labor-intensive processes include stone carving, mold-making, and kiln cast glass.
The Open Studio will take place in the Fort Hamilton Gatehouse’s attic space (up one flight of stairs) as well as in the ground-floor studio space. This will be a chance to see Rowan’s process and research, and to ask questions about the experience of working as an artist in an active cemetery.
Free. Registration is not required, just stop by!
The Gatehouse is located at Fort Hamilton Parkway and Micieli Place, easily accessible on the F and G trains at Fort Hamilton Station. The attic is not ADA accessible.
