Long-time Brooklyn resident and artist, Jonathan Fritz, will open his art studio/gallery to the public December 1st in conjunction with Target First Saturdays at the Brooklyn Museum and be open through the holiday season presenting his unique pop art.
His work is visible in mural form all over NYC such as at the Red Lion as well as The Path Cafe among others. Along with painting, Fritz also teaches art therapy to the autistic and shows regularly at fundraisers for disaster relief, Autistic Awareness, Cooking for New York, and Jazz for Peace.
“I think its really important to help meaningful fundraising projects,” says Fritz. “My work is personal and reads on so many levels. Because I'm about the people and the neighborhoods. I want everyone to have my work and if it can help raise money for these important organizations, all the better.”
Located a shop away from longtime friend Andy Heidel’s bar, The Way Station, the two plan on cross promoting art and music in the Prospect Heights/Crown Heights neighborhood.
Fritz will also be showing his work in three upcoming shows in Manhattan:
11/30-12/1 at 320 Studios on west 36th st, 14th floor, penthouse 6-1am.
12/5 Chelsea Eye Gallery, 157 west 19th street 6-10pm.
12/11 The Path Cafe 131, Christopher St. 6-8pm
The Fritz Art Studio/Gallery is located at 687A Washington Ave near the corner of Prospect Place in Prospect/Crown Heights and open daily noon till late.
