Tabla Rasa is an art gallery that profiles works of emerging, mid- career, and established artists of Brooklyn, New York, and the United States. Located in a turn of the century carriage house in industrial Sunset Park, Brooklyn, Tabla Rasa presents solo and group exhibitions in a wide range of styles, themes and media.

Audrey Frank Anastasi and Joseph Anastasi are committed to the visual arts as an expression of the human spirit and a voice for social issues. Bringing their experience with nonprofit art organizations to Tabla Rasa, they are committed to presenting an accessible, friendly, non-intimidating, yet high quality art viewing venue.

by Brenda Colling and Danny Scheffer

When designer and puppeteer Brenda Colling combines talents with the scissor wizardry of Danny Scheffer, the result is Living in the Shadows.

This event fuses their skills in design, puppetry, sculpture and theatre into a unique presentation.

By combining backlit silhouettes, music and spoken word, they explore an eclipsed world of fleeting, fragmented views.

Following this voyage of shadow and light, the artists will speak on the origins of shadow puppetry, and its relationship to other art forms. There will be examples of traditional puppets on hand. The audience is invited to ask questions, and interact with the puppets.(time permitting)

This FREE presentatation is suitable for all ages.

The gallery is located at 224 48th street, between 2nd and 3rd Avenues in SPArC (Sunset Park Artists' Community). The "R" train stops at 45th Street. Street parking is available.

Tabla Rasa Gallery is FREE and open to the public Fridays and Saturdays. Their current exhibition, ANIMUTATIONS runs through June 24, from noon until 5 pm
