23K Gold Leaf for Walter Foods, Williamsburg BK by Abbie Zuidema

Check out this rad time-lapse video of yours truly captured by longtime (7+years) Walter Foods regular Kirk Balden.  A tremendous thank you to him for literally spending hours filming this. He time-lapsed my process of hand lettering & water gilding 23k gold at the Williamsburg BK restaurant, Walter Foods.  The Mercow looks fabulous!

Group show in Williamsburg @Sideshow Gallery! Opening tonight January, 7th 2012 !!! by Abbie Zuidema

I've been invited to add my work to the group show at Sideshow Gallery in Williamsburg. One of my mehndi paintings is framed & hanging! The opening is tonight January 7th, 2012, (unfortunately I will not be able to attend-I am working..)  Josh Goldberg, also has a piece in it, which is exciting to be able to show alongside my husband!

It happens every year & includes a TON of artist from the neighborhood. It's quite an event. The work is hung floor to ceiling french gallery style & everyone comes to see it. The gallery is PACKED. Literally there is someone at the door to limit how many people can go in at one time.  For some reason it always seems to fall on the coldest night of the year... this year it might be different. Should be really fun-check it out if you are in the neighborhood!
