Pocket Utopia is pleased to announce the summer artist residency of Sharon Butler. After taking the previous and last show down, the exhibition space is empty, so Butler is ready and makes a return visit to the space for a 4-week residency. Butler, a painter and writer, maintains the art blog Two Coats of Paint, and is a Contributing Writer at The Brooklyn Rail.
Butler will continue a sketchbook series that combine architectural form with eccentric perspective and irresolute draftsmanship. Ms. Butler is the sixth resident artist to set up “studio” in the space. Working during the day, the passerby can catch a glimpse of or catch up with Butler while she works. Pocket Utopia continues as a far away space run by artist Austin Thomas.
