Gowanus Open Studios, aka GOS, is a free annual weekend event that takes place the weekend of October 20 - 21 from 12-6 pm. Artists in Brooklyn's Gowanus neighborhood (and slightly beyond) open their studio doors and welcome the public to view art, meet the artists, learn about the process of art-making, and get a glimpse of the life of artists.

Silkscreen of Clemente Soto Velez by artist Miguel Trelles

Posted on July 10, 2015 by Erick Rios

Clemente Soto Velez Silkscreen by artist Miguel Trelles framed at Frames and StretchersThis great silkscreen work of Clemente Soto Velez by artist Miguel Trelles was framed yesterday. We designed this framing job using all white.  The frame is from our Rivington Medium Shadow Boxes Collection. This Italian moulding from Roma is very minimalist but classy. Of course, we used all museum archival materials and UV protection glass to ensure the longevity of this cool piece of art. The collector loved it and now is hanging in his new place in East Harlem!!

Clemente Soto Velez (1905 – April 15, 1993) was a Puerto Rican nationalist, poet, journalist and activist who mentored many generations of artists in Puerto Rico and New York City. Upon his death in 1993, he left a rich legacy that contributed to the cultural, social and economic life of Puerto Ricans in New York and Latinos everywhere.
