Long time Lefferts Gardens community member and artist Winston Stiell will be having a pop-up show/benefit at Dorsey’s Art Gallery
Sunday, November 20th – 2pm-6pm.
Winston Stiell is a hornsmith, artist, jewelry maker and craftsperson who’s been working in Brooklyn for nearly 30 years. He sculpts majestic wildlife, particularly birds, out of re-purposed cow horns. When asked about his craft, Winston simply states, ”I love birds, I love everything about them.”
Unfortunately, on November 1, 2016 after nearly three decades living and working at 547 Rogers Ave, in Flatbush, Brooklyn, the landlord seized possession of the property and Winston was forcibly removed from the storefront. On February 1, 2017 he will be forced from his home.
Everyone is welcome to attend this Sunday’s event and fundraiser at Dorsey’s Art Gallery. All proceeds will go directly to the #WinstonTransition campaign, a fundraising effort to help Winston make a smooth transition to a new studio and residence. Please bring family, friends, and neighbors to this event as we organize as a community to support Winston in his transition.
You can also RSVP to the event via Facebook.
Dorsey’s Art Gallery, located at 553 Rogers Ave. in Brooklyn, is the oldest, continuously run, black owned and operated art gallery in the New York metropolitan area.
