Call for Submissions!
There are extraordinary places offering the most amazing workshops, classes, events, and exhibits right at our fingertips! Here is a list of Everything Art in the state of New York, with a focus on NYC, Long Island, and Hudson Valley. These are the places that fill the voids left in our schools and workplaces; they are spots to relax and release, to brainstorm and resolve, to exist and simply be without pressures to do.

Do NYC recently listed some of the most fun (and free) galleries to stroll throughout the city. There’s Karma Gallery and Pioneer Works on the list and guaranteed there are plenty on the same streets you’ll discover on your own.
NYU offers free admission to many of their art galleries. I once saw an Allan Ginsberg photo exhibit. I felt honored to see the contributions made as they felt very intimate and were thought provoking. It inspired me to start putting myself out there as a photographer, realizing it’s all subjective and we’re in this together.
The Brooklyn Art Library hosts The Sketchbook Project. If you haven’t heard of this project yet, you’re definitely missing out on the world of collaborative arts. A quick walk from the L-train Lorimer or Graham stops will introduce you to this cozy, comfortable little spot. If you go on a Saturday (starting in the spring), there’s a farmer’s market two or three blocks away by McCarren Park.
Spoiled NYC posts monthly art events regularly. Check out more exhibits celebrating women creatives in March and check back monthly for ever-changing themes.
