Arts organizations around Downtown Brooklyn are pairing up to share each other’s work with our communities in the and we were lucky enough to be paired with ! We love Smack Mellon’s commitment to supporting artists and wanted to share a bit about their organization with our community. We are sharing three photos from their most recent exhibition including Smack Mellon's Art Ready 2022 Exhibition. Art Ready connects high school aged artists in 10th to 12th grades with New York City’s most innovative and inspiring cultural makers to act as mentors and culminates in a group show.

In their own words ‘Smack Mellon is a nonprofit arts organization located in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Smack Mellon’s mission is to nurture and support emerging, under-recognized mid-career and women artists in the creation and exhibition of new work, by providing exhibition opportunities, studio workspace, and access to equipment and technical assistance for the realization of ambitious projects.’

We are pleased to share three exhibitions:

First Slide: "The Tenacity of a Fluid Trace" by Luba Drozd

Second Slide: "The Dissolution caus'd by Fire is in all Bodies" featuring artists Leah Beeferman, Mimi Park, and Charisse Pearlina Weston. Co-curated by Luba Drozd

Third Slide: Art Ready 2022 Exhibition.

Please join Dieu Donné for the opening celebration of In Turn: The First Dieu Donné Intern Exhibition on September 19th from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. The interns of every department play a behind-the-scenes but fundamental role in the operations, accessibility, and care of our studio and collection. This exhibition is a reminder that for many of them, passion for the arts and for the organizations which create, house, and sell art, such as Dieu Donné, is rooted in or strengthened by their own personal artistry.

The exhibition will take place at Dieu Donné. RSVP at the link in our bio.

We are looking forward to welcoming you!

Beginning July 2nd, South Etna Montauk Foundation will devote its gallery space to new works by Brooklyn-based artists Eddie Martinez and Sam Moyer. Wall pieces from Moyer’s ongoing series of stone paintings will be complemented by a pair of her concrete backgammon boards, in juxtaposition with Martinez’s latest paper-pulp paintings, produced during a recent residency at Dieu-Donné in Brooklyn. By bringing Moyer and Martinez together, the exhibition invites visitors to contemplate areas of both mutual influence and difference in the practices of these married artists.

Using a wide variety of hand papermaking techniques, the included artists consider themes of personal, cultural, and historical memory. They explore and experiment with paper as a process-driven medium, allowing for care, consideration, and rumination on familiar forms. The featured artists construct contemporary altars, monuments, and mementos, bringing power, meaning, or an otherworldliness into their work.

Pictured above: Howardena Pindell, Untitled #10, 2021, 12 in diameter, Handmade abaca paper with embedded punched paper dots. Courtesy of the Artist and Dieu Donné. In June of 2021, Dieu Donné and Howardena Pindell started a collaboration that resulted in a large body of work. Working closely with Master Collaborators Amy Jacobs and Tatiana Ginsberg, Pindell used stenciling and embedding on handmade paper made from abaca and cotton pulp. They experimented with varying sizes, colors, and materials, combining newly punched and printed paper dots with hand-written dots pulled from Pindell’s archive. The newly realized body of work, centered around the concept of the grid, acts as a natural extension of Pindell’s artistic practice into the medium of handmade paper.

🎉We are very proud to share this wonderful collaboration with Abdolreza Aminlari exhibited in Chicago at Andrew Rafacz Gallery! Check out his stunning works and beautiful studio shots!🥂
Repost from

In the summer of 2021, Abdolreza Aminlari was invited by the acclaimed paper workshop Dieu Donné to collaborate on a project. He created handmade paper from abaca pulp layered on top of a cotton base. He utilizes couching, a process of transferring newly made paper from the mold to an absorbent surface so that it can be pressed and dried.

There is an interplay between the organic nature of the paper and the composition of his embroidered geometries, much like an architect’s response to a landscape.

𝘓𝘰𝘤𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘰𝘧 𝘏𝘰𝘮𝘦 is open through Saturday, May 28th, 2022 with a public open house Saturday from 3 - 5PM.

Our Mission

Dieu Donné is a leading non-profit cultural institution dedicated to serving established and emerging artists through the collaborative creation of contemporary art using the process of hand papermaking.

Dieu Donné was founded in 1976 by Susan Gosin and Bruce Wineberg to explore the untapped potential of hand papermaking as an art medium. We introduce artists from a wide variety of practices to the creative possibilities in hand papermaking, fostering experimentation and creating innovative works of art. Our work is realized through extensive collaborations with artists. We strive to teach a new visual language, providing a transformative experience that often leads to artistic breakthroughs. We share this work with the community through our gallery, public and educational programs.
