Brieff Studios is the combined artistic ambitions of Gabrielle Burger and Jeff Dietz.
In March 2016, Gabrielle and Jeff started the popular monthly event called "Tarrytown Drink & Draw." In this non-instructional workshop, artists of all skill levels can come together for a fun night of life drawing. Tarrytown Drink & Draw is a modern take on a classical artistic practice.
In addition to hosting events in Tarrytown, Gabrielle and Jeff also enjoy participating in community art projects. In September 2016 they were featured artists at the Haverstraw River Arts Festival, where they created an interactive art installation interpreting the cultural landscape. They also worked on another community art project through Riverkeeper. Gabrielle and Jeff are both board members of the local arts nonprofit, RiverArts and participate in the yearly open studios event called Studio Tour.
Brieff Studios is committed to bringing more creative events to the rivertowns, as well as facilitating strong partnerships between local artists.
