Take a look at some images from our visit with artist Beth Dary at her studio in DUMBO last week. These photographs have been generously documented by ART READY mentee, Femi Fleming.


Thanks for visiting! We have two more studio visits left before we are matched with a mentor for the rest of the year!

Stay tuned.

ART READY Studio Visits 2017-18



Hello, my name is Damiaya and I am one of the new Art Ready mentees at Smack Mellon!

Today I’ll be showing you pictures taken in Heejung Cho’s studio during our visit on November 8th. Heejung showed us all of her artwork and talked about her process making city landscape sculptures out of wood. She also had us make our own sculptures out of paper and tape! This was our second studio visit for the 2017-2018 Art Ready program. We have four more to go! After we visit all the Artist Mentors’ Studios we will choose who we hope to be mentored by for the year.

Stay tuned!

Prints that can evolve from the residual ink.


I experimented on Gelli plate to make mono prints with different colored inks.


I added a collagraph in a shape of a eye as an image.



For gelli plates I need to hand rub in order to get ink on it.


The surface changes with every print. I could add the ink or change the position of the collagraph to create a new mono print.
