Billykirk’s very own Kirk Bray will take part in this year’s Jersey City Artists Studio Tour. This marks the twenty-third year of the event, hosted by the Division of Cultural Affairs, Pro Arts Jersey City and Jersey City artists, themselves.
The Studio Tour kicks off on October 4 with a music celebration at Jersey City’s Tenmark Building, and features open studios from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The Jersey City Independent has provided an online map for people interested in hitting all the vibrant stops on the tour. While Kirk’s studio is separate from the Billykirk leather and design studio, you’ll see some familiar pieces in his place.
Here’s a sneak peek of Kirk’s studio, at 140 Bay Street. You can also see more of Kirk’s original work as featured in our Fall 2013 Lookbook.
Also, be sure to check out our good friend Agnes de Bethune’s work (see below). Her large scale realistic oil paintings are up at the Tenmarc Building and her studio on Halladay St.
