Who We Are

Choose your favorite: collective, guild, skillshare, crit group or social club. We are Gowanus Swin Society, a select group of Gowanus based artists that meet regularly and provide a forum for sharing information and artist resources. We also like to show off and have a good time. And yes, you are invited.


We accept applications on a rolling basis.

Our Story

Suzy Kopf and Kristen Haskell were walking home after an art opening. They might have had a few drinks. And Suzy turned to Kristen and said “Let’s start a club and have crits and hang out with other artists!” And then Kristen said, “Does that mean we get to throw art parties?” And then Suzy said something that is not safe for web. Gowanus Swim Society was born!
