Tonight was the first meeting for the Gowanus Swim Society! This new semi-exclusive Gowanus artist group will be meeting once a month to share in a variety of collaborations. We discussed what some of our goals are for the group, committed to monthly meetings where we share knowledge and skills with the group, & talked about having a slide night party. Mostly, it seems like the focus of this new group is build a strong network of artists that can be sought out for advice, critique, shows, art dialogue, art marketing and business, and most importantly art fun. Oh, and Kristin and Suzy were kind enough to ask me to join! I'm looking forward to all our upcoming and fun activities.
