Amy Cheng -- a featured artist in Flora Fantastica

We're thrilled Elisa Contemporary Art artist Amy Cheng will be a featured artist in this summer's exhibit, Flora Fantastica! at Wave Hill.

Here's a little about the exhibit and upcoming events:

A counterpoint to Wave Hill’s lush summer gardens, this exuberant exhibition shows the work of four artists, Nancy Blum, Amy Cheng, Elisabeth Condon and Jill Parisi, who share an interest in pattern derived from cultural and botanical sources to create fantastic hybrid forms.

Each artist has developed individualized techniques to create work that inspires a sense of awe and wonder.

A special thanks to curators Jennifer McGregor, Gabriel De Guzman and Tracy Fenix!
