The Invisible Dog is thrilled to share with you that two of our artists-in-residence, Prune Nourry and Oliver Jeffers have been selected as members of the Top Ten Nominated Artists from the GO! Brooklyn Open Studios project from the Brooklyn Museum.
Jeffers and Nourry join 8 other Brooklyn artists who were selected from a total of 1708 artists and a total of 9457 nominations! Both Jeffers and Nourry have had studios at the Invisible Dog for over a year. Jeffers published two books this past summer – a catalog of his most recent painting and a new children’s book. Nourry’s multi-disciplinary work was featured in a solo exhibition at the Invisible Dog last spring. Their nomination is a commendation of their hard work and talent. All the community of 35 fellow artists-in-residence at The Invisible Dog is proud of their nomination.
This announcement comes during a hallmark week of success and recognition at the Invisible Dog. On Tuesday September 25th, we were visited by the First Lady of France, Madame Valerie Trierweiler. Madame Trierweiler took a two-hour private tour with director, Lucien Zayan, viewing Shaboygen by Steven and William Ladd on the ground floor and then several studios of our artists-in-residence.
And today, we reached over 43% of our goal on Kickstarter with the generous donations of backers from around the world.
From the nomination of Jeffers and Nourry out of all of the Brooklyn artists who participated in GO! to the praise from the French First Lady to the resounding messages of support from our network for our Kickstarter, this week has highlighted the Invisible Dog in a global environment. We are overjoyed!
We extend our heartfelt congratulations to Prune Nourry, Oliver Jeffers and the other 8 artists in the Top Ten as well as to ALL of the artists who participated in the GO! Brooklyn Open Studios. Bravo!
