They say artists don't hit their strides until later in life, so I guess I'm comfortable announcing that I'm turning 50 on July 2. And I'm happy to invite all of you to a big event, 50 YEARS OF JONATHAN BLUM, a party/retrospective on Saturday, June 27th, at the Shapeshifter Lab on 18 Whitwell Place in Brooklyn's Gowanus neighborhood, from 7pm to 1am. Everyone is welcome, including kids. Mark your calendars; more details to come.
Sunday, May 17, 12-6pm, it's THE 5th AVENUE FAIR in Park Slope, Brooklyn. As street fairs go, this is as good as they get. So many local restaurants, boutiques, and artists participate in this event. This year Clearview Productions, the company that manages the fair, will designate the block in front of my Storefront/Studio an "artist block." My studio is at 285 5th Ave between 1st and 2nd Streets.
TWO WEEKEND EVENT: Saturday and Sunday, June 6-7 and June 13-14, 12-9pm. I'm participating in the AMERICAN CRAFTS FESTIVAL at LINCOLN CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS in NYC. It is located on the grand plaza right in front between W 62nd and W 65th St. This festival gets high ratings because of the quality, variety and craftsmanship of the vendors. When you're facing Lincoln Center from the plaza, my booth will be on the left side. Booth #DO33 (first weekend) & DO29 (second weekend).
Sunday, June 21, 12-6pm, I'll be selling at SEVENTH HEAVEN, which has become a Father's Day tradition. It takes place on 7th Ave in Park Slope, Brooklyn. My spot will be between Carroll and President St which will also be designated an "artist block."
My Washington DC representative, Dino Almaguer, will be selling for me at EASTERN MARKET most weekends this spring. This food/art/craft/antique/flea market is located at 7th St, S.E. on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. Contact him directly at (240) 419-4151 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. I do my best to keep him supplied with great work.

This is a two-minute video of me the Brooklyn Museum released in November 2012.
There are two images using this technique; an ostrich and a dog. After I print each silkscreen, I hand painted them which gives each one a completely different look. And they're only $95.
Left: Ostrich with an Olive Trying to Impress New York City hand-colored print 12"X15", $95; Delusional Dog Trying to Impress New York City hand- colored print 12"X15"), $95.
