El Taller is a vital lively place filled with art
from the stair landings to the wonderful art shows that come
through. It is an asset to the Upper West Side.

The Grady Alexis Gallery at El Taller Latino Americano is pleased to present “New York: City and Nature,” an art exhibition featuring the work of Sidney Harris, Antoinette Janecki and Toni Serio, three artists who, inspired by New York, approach figurative painting in entirely distinct ways.
Sidney Harris creates expressionistic, large-scale paintings inspired by the vibrancy of life in New York City. He is best known as a cartoonist whose work has been published in numerous magazines, books and journals including American Scientist and The New Yorker. Harris obtained his degree from Brooklyn College and then attended the Art Students League of New York.
Antoinette M. Janecki is known for her vivid landscapes and dramatic marine paintings. She works in small scale, capturing the best of the two worlds she resides in, New York City and Greenport, Long Island.
Janecki studied with Master pastelist Richard Pionk and is a Juried Associate of The Pastel Society of America. Her work is exhibited locally and nationally and she has received awards from the Westhampton Outdoor Art Show, the Washington Square Art Exhibition and the Art Students League.
Toni Serio paints the vast spaces of upper Manhattan in a celebration of nature within city life that includes parks, bicyclists, picnickers and the George Washington Bridge.
Serio received a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art and a MFA from Yale University. Awards include the Alice B. Kimball Traveling Fellowship, a Yale Tuition Scholarship and the MTA–Artists Unite Subway Elevator Poster Project, he has received grants from NoMAA, Change Inc. and the Drawing Center.

The Grady Alexis Gallery at El Taller Latino Americano is pleased to present "Take Me To The River" a photography exhibition by artist Evelyn Palmer.
This collection offers such remarkable and varied perspectives that viewers will be surprised to learn it is a deep exploration of a single subject-a small stream in the Catskill Mountains. The abstract images evoke figures or landscapes not expected from this environment, and, though most of them depict areas of only a few square inches, they appear to have come from a much broader field of view. Because of the way they capture texture, color, light and movement, many of the photographs resemble paintings.
The artist's intention is to encourage others to look beyond surface appearances and experiences to discover life's meaning and beauty. The exhibit is presented in support of breast cancer patient care and research.
