Our Difference

At Elisa Contemporary Art, we choose to represent art and artists who do not fit into any particular current trend or fashion, but who are exploring various media, techniques, materials and ideas about humanity and our world that are timeless and transformational.

We believe that art is a gift to be shared, to be given and received with appreciation, respect and awareness. For that reason, we also believe in sharing the profits from the sale of works of art with philanthropic organizations that are dedicated to the healing, enriching and changing the lives of those in need—or those in underserved communities—through experience and engagement with contemporary art.

Currently a portion of sale of each work of art is donated to supporting the work of the following organizations:

Free Arts NYC

Beyond food, clothing, and shelter, Free Arts NYC believes that children deserve the opportunity to express themselves creatively with the help of a supportive mentor.

Free Arts NYC is a volunteer-based nonprofit established to bring the healing power of the arts to children and families who face poverty, homelessness, and other risk factors. At no cost to the children, families, volunteers, or our collaborating social service agencies.

Free Arts NYC provides programs that are mobile, making it possible for our volunteers to bring creativity and hope directly into the communities where there is the greatest need. Free Arts NYC provides under-served children and families with a unique combination of educational arts and mentoring programs that help them to foster the self-confidence and resiliency needed to realize their fullest potential.

Our core programs use painting, dance, drama, writing, music, sculpture, photography and other creative outlets to help children express themselves and gain confidence and self-esteem. Working with trained volunteers and professional facilitators, Free Arts programs allow young people to gain self-confidence and strengthen their relationships with their peers, parents, guardians and mentors.

Since 1998, founding Director Liz Hopfan has taken the nonprofit from a budget of $100,000 to over $1,400,000. Free Arts NYC volunteers have now served over 24,000 children and families.

The Art Therapy Outreach Center (ATOC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing free art therapy to underserved populations in the New York City area who have experienced some form of trauma, including veterans, at-risk youth, and victims of domestic violence or sexual abuse. Our mission is to utilize the visual arts to provide a therapeutic experience for participants that will enhance their physical, mental and emotional well-being. Ultimately, ATOC’s aim is to help clients see themselves as survivors of trauma rather than victims, and build the confidence necessary to re-engage in their communities and move on with their lives.

Art Therapy is a treatment method that uniquely combines art and psychology to explore the problems and potentials of individuals. It is a specialized way of using the power of the creative process as a vehicle for healing, communication, self-expression and personal development.

ATOC works in collaboration with some of New York’s most respected and established nonprofits that also work with marginalized populations. The partnerships reduce duplication of services allowing more funds to be allocated to direct service delivery. Last year, ATOC recorded upwards of 2,200 client contacts and provided more than 3,300 client hours of free art therapy.

Their annual fundraiser, An Autumn Affair is will take place this yearwww on Thursday, October 30, 2014 at the Carriage House Center for the Arts on East 38th Street.! For more information and tickets, click here.
