Fashion is change. Fashion impacts every aspect of our lives, not only from the clothes we wear, but to the fabrics in our homes, our cars, and the furniture we use.
As a fashion illustrator, Claire Thompson seeks to bring to life the patterns, colors, silhouettes and textiles we wear everyday. Fashion is not only confined to what we wear, but how we wear it; what we pair it with and how fashion helps create – and change – our identity.
Claire’s work captures a fleeting moment in time, the intimate relationships humans have between fashion and their bodies everyday.
Based in Brooklyn, NY, Claire has travelled throughout the US documenting fashion in many large cities. Her work spans from live runway illustration to editorial and advertising. She has illustrated live at New York Fashion Week, London Fashion Week and Bridal Fashion Week. The pieces in this show are just a small fraction of the hundreds of fashion illustrations Claire has painted during her career.

About the Artist:
Mr. Lubell is a widely collected printmaker who resides with his wife Selena on Rutland Road in our Lefferts Manor community. He specializes in the etching processes of aquatint and chine colee ( a rice paper collage). Over the past fifteen years he has worked at several printmaking studios in the New York City region, working with leading figures including, Bob Blackburn, Claudio Vaurez, Jan Carlisle, Michael Pelliteri, Laurie Ourlicht, and Vijay Kumar, amongst others.
The theme of this show at Tugboat focuses on scenes drawn from our neighborhood and the pageant of life around Prospect Park. Fourteen framed etchings will be displayed.
Our neighbors in Brooklyn walk, thrive, play, chat, and flirt among the ubiquitous brownstones and parkland of this unique urban village. Although we often can’t see their faces of his subjects, their gestures and movement reveal their universal joy and struggle
In addition to his etchings of the city and parks, Mr. Lubell is also well regarded for his portrayal of the sea, sailing and beaches, in a wide collection of editions drawn from the coasts of our Brooklyn shoreline.
Also, his etchings of Caribbean life are drawn from the Jamaican hillside country of his wife’s native land. The editions remind the viewer of a nostalgic time when life in the islands was simpler and working the fields was more honored.
RSVP on Facebook if you like.

I have been living, loving and photographing PLG for over 11 years and I still get the same buzz as I did in 2003 when I go out on my night shoots around the neighborhood. The heart of my texhnique is trying to see PLG for the first time every day I shoot here.
Inhabitants of PLG are so fortunate to live in such a vibrant and fun-loving environment. If a photograph is a production of light, then on face value I can capture an image in PLG, on any given day as beautiful as anywhere on earth.
