Lisa Zilker: Dream Inspired Artist Painting a Perfect Picture

“Most of my work is derived from my dreams and my meditation. I get very comfortable with the mediums I utilize to interpret my dreams. I use not earth tones instead I focus on intense colors.”

Wrapping up the Harlem Arts Festival

A fifth year now the Harlem Arts Festival has come to Marcus Garvey park in Central Park.  And another year it has been a shining example of the local arts scene and a fantastic community event.

The festival brought together over 43 musicians, dancers, singers and entertainers over the 2 day event.  Also represented in the park were over 30 local businesses, artists and restaurants.

5th Anniversary of the Harlem Arts Festival

The Harlem Arts Festival is back at Marcus Garvey Park this weekend (June 25th-26th!)  We covered the festivities last year and it really is a wonderful community event.

You can easily access the park by most NYC subway lines exiting at the 125th street stop and then a short walk.  While you are in the neighborhood be sure to take advantage of some great restaurants, photo opportunities of historic brownstones and the local gallery scene.

Elizabeth Raymer Griffin’s Studio

Elizabeth Raymer Griffin doesn’t usually let other people into her studio. It’s her workspace, her secret hideout, a virtual reproduction of her college studio apartment. But I’m lucky, because Liz is my friend, so when I ask if I can profile her, she just says “Yes, ma’am!” and invites me right over to her Braddock Avenue studio “for visuals” even though I know that she’ll only look at the pictures I take of her through her fingers.

Yes, that’s right, my friend the self-portraitist hates being photographed.
