November 20: Organizing Meeting for Victorian Flatbush Artist's Tour

Via Flatbush Family Network and FDCOnline. Two of my neighbors are trying to organize an Artist's Tour to coincide with the annual House Tour. They're holding an organizing meeting this Tuesday, November 20.

To: Working artists of Victorian Flatbush and our supporters

We live in a neighborhood of distinctive beauty and historic significance—and one that has regained fresh vitality in recent years. Our community is fabled for its vibrant diversity—not only many nationalities, ethnicities and religions, but also a variety of
artistic disciplines practiced by the many creators and innovators among us.

Therefore, I propose we organize an artists' studio tour in Victorian Flatbush.

Through our combined efforts, we will be able to market our event using websites, posters, brochures, signage, maps, etc. We have seen the success of studio tours all over the country and as close as Park Slope and DUMBO.

I also propose that we run it the weekend of the Victorian Flatbush House Tour.

This tour already brings hundreds of people into the community. A studio tour would provide synergy, attracting art lovers to our event and benefiting both.

The studio tour would provide visitors a rare glimpse into the working habitat of the artist while greatly increasing our visibility. This visibility and high traffic will translate into sales as home-oriented guests will seek just the right treasure to beautify their own homes.

Think of it as an art show where you don't have to travel or set up a tent. All we need to bring is our creativity, hospitality, talents and commitment to make this a reality.

To this end, there will be an organizing meeting Tuesday, November 20, 7:30PM at Karen’s home. All those interested in opening their studios or in helping out on this event are urged to attend.

Help us spread the word! Please let anyone else who might be interested know about the meeting and ask them to attend. If you are interested in attending this important meeting, please email ArtistKaren [at] mac {dot} com.

Looking forward to seeing you then,
Karen F. & Brenda B.
