I went back to Chelsea on Friday to check out a few galleries with Endi Collado -- a young artist who's worked with me at Hamilton Fish -- and his brother Lenny. So much of what takes up space in Chelsea galleries is uninspiring. I did, though, enjoy these zany characters created by Berlin-based artist Stefanie Gutheil. I love her use of bold colors and various collage elements. It was all kind of a natural high and worth a visit! The exhibit continues through February 20th at 520 West 24th Street.
Educator, writer and curator. Poetry Teacher of the Year, 1988, awarded by Poets House and NYC Board of Education. I co-authored three books back in the 90's -- two of which were cited as best Books for the Teen Age by the New York Public Library. (The Place I Call Home: Voices and Faces of Homeless Teens and Jerusalem Mosaic: Young Voices from the Holy City.) Both books have also been cited by the Library of Congress for their "strong and honest voice of the young adult." I also authored A to Z : The Book of Rap & Hip Hop Slang -- with entries that have since been cited by dozens of dictionaries.
