HANDMADE gallery is located at 343 Smith Street Brooklyn NY 11231

The gallery will be open through mid January 2011.

HANDMADE is a workshop gallery artist foundation project showcasing artisan work for the winter 2010. Workshop Gallery Artist Foundation is a 501.c.3 non-profit corporation. The gallery is semi-collective artisan space dedicated to the celebration of cultural expressions, transparency in our processes, the sharing of our philosophies and a welcome to others with creative ideas. The foundation was founded in 2009 to promote and facilitate the process of keeping traditional craft alive and a vibrant in our world and to encourage the interpretation and expression of such through the individual artisan. CIE is a semi-cooperative venture sponsored by WGAF so that our affiliated artist may develop skills as they create marketable products. Sales directly support the artist and the special programs which bring art into the public sphere and our communities throughout the year.

In addition to my work created from trees and stones, on display and available for purchase are absolutely exquisite pottery, an eclectic display of handmade jewelry, along with the work of a diverse group of talented artists in a variety of media. The collection is growing daily. I’ll update this post with images of that work as soon as it becomes available.

Currently, under an Individual Artist Commission awarded by Arts Mid-Hudson, Zelda is developing Que Será, Será (Whatever Will Be, Will Be), a multi-media one-person show that chronicles the joys and challenges of navigating non-binary Queerness from a childhood in the 1950s to adulthood.

She is also producing ZELDA’S Happenings, a series of black-light, body-painting, percussion dance parties that will produce original wearable art for a new UpState Artists Clothing Collection representing artists of the region.
