Artist Lucy Sparrow Makes Montauk Debut With ‘Feltz Bagels’

This summer, internationally acclaimed British artist Lucy Sparrow makes her return to the US to unveil “Feltz Bagels,” an artistic homage to New York City’s legendary culinary delicacy and the neighborhood bagel joints of the Lower East Side of Manhattan that made them famous.

On display at TW Fine Art in Montauk, this unique and immersive art show will allow visitors to buy their favorite lunch order handmade in felt and served personally by Sparrow herself.

Sparrow will offer thirteen varieties of bagel – each hand-sewn and available filled or plain with a sewn selection of New York staples. Choose from a poppyseed bagel with a schmear, a colorful rainbow salt-beef bagel, or the everything bagel filled with pastrami and pickles.

“Feltz Bagels” will be Sparrow’s third installation in New York. “My work is always focused on community experiences and the everyday products that bring us together. There really is no greater example of this than the bagel bakeries of New York that have been nourishing much more than the stomachs of the city’s residents since the late 19th century. I’m really excited to bring one of my installations to Montauk for summer 2023!” said the artist.

Founder of TW Fine Art, Mike de Paola, said “We are so excited to showcase Lucy Sparrow’s newest felt creations at TW Fine Art Montauk. Lucy’s playful hand-made works invoke a sense of nostalgia and magic, bringing joy to those that become a part of her felt world building.”

The show will run through September 4.
