This Winter, the Elisa Contemporary Art (formerly Elisa Tucci Contemporary Art) Riverdale gallery will serve as a welcome oasis, with the new exhibit, Aloha.
Come out of the snow and cold, and be transported to serene underwater worlds and natural paradises, and capture the spiritual essence of these islands with artistic visions from some of the top Hawaii-based artists.
You'll voyage below and beyond the surface of the sea, connect to the spirituality of these islands, explore the hypnotic and transformational energy of water or find yourself seduced by a siren or simply, nature’s beauty and bounty.
The exhibit will feature a series of works by Kauai-based artist Carol Bennett including oil on wood paintings, paintings on recycled Dacron sailboat sails and watercolors, and oil on glass; photography by surfing-legend and Maui-artist, Pete Cabrinha, Mixed media and sand paintings by Mark Van Wagner, and artwork by Big Island artists Peter Antrim Kowalke, Connie Firestone, and Mike Field.
A special Opening Reception will take place on Thursday, February 11th from 5-7:30 pm.
5% of gallery commissions from sales will be donated to Free Arts NYC – a NY based charities helping underserved children heal through art.
The exhibit will run through March 28, 2010.
Elisa Contemporary Art is located at 5622 Mosholu Avenue (near 256th Street/Riverdale Library), Riverdale NY.
Gallery Hours: Friday/Saturday 10am – 6pm; And by Appointment.
