A Sampling from the BWAC Maker's Market: Part 1

There are many reasons to visit the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition. Multiple exhibits of members work as well as juried shows with art from all over the country are hanging simultaneously.

Another excellent reason to visit BWAC is the Maker's Market. This shop offers a wide variety of artwork, crafts, health and beauty products, juvenile fiction and coloring books made by BWAC members.

Here's a sampling of that variety. John and Wendy offer pet inspired artwork from cat pillows, digital prints, collage and more. Have a cat or a dog? Or just like them, you'll love their work.

Look at this Tattooed Dog, digital print on canvas. We certainly have our pet fans covered.

Ingrid Butterer offers a beautiful selection of fiber and ceramic art in a soothing palette.


Alicia Degner's tile coasters are a perennial favorite. They feature iconic scenes of New York City.

A recent addition are Jessie Schulman's cards of her stunning nature photography and as well as her Rosh Hashanah cards.



Lisett Clark is selling notebooks, very small books and prints of her fabric collage pieces. If you look carefully you can see her tiny book earrings.


Speaking of earrings I was thrilled to find Pat Dignan's Out of the Woods selection of jewelry. I am a huge fan of treasures found in the woods. Here are her lichen earrings.


I am selling collages, prints and yesterday added free coloring book pages to introduce my two coloring books available in the Maker's Market.

This is truly the tip of the iceberg of the wonderful offerings at the Maker's Market. There are literally hundreds of items available for immediate purchase. We've got you covered for beautiful, whimsical, humorous, practical and just plain cool.

Maker's Market is open during regular BWAC hours, Saturday and Sunday 1 - 6 pm. The shop is located right by the front door on the Van Brunt side of the gallery.

Share this post with your friends and family. Make sure they know about this wonderful opportunity to not only support local artists but to add  more art to their lives.
