Celebrating the Visual Arts

Check out Greenburgh Arts and Culture’s latest new venture: Cable TV interviews with artists! Each month 17 year old Katie Weber or I will sit down for a conversation with a local, visual artist. These unscripted interviews allow the artists to share themselves, their vision and their work with viewers. Every Friday, the shows run live on Greenburgh channel 75/Cablevision and 34/Verizon Fios at 9 am, 3 pm and 8 pm. The interviews also are available on the web at http://www.greenburghpublicaccess.com/greenburgh-celebrates-the-visual-arts. To date, we’ve interviewed “Rivertowns artist” Ronnie Levine; Hope Friedland, artist, teacher and entrepreneur; Lawrence “Sketch” Cheatham, a Dobbs Ferry artist whose painting of his young daughter as the Mona Lisa went viral on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook;  Stephanie Rosen, artist and art teacher at Ardsley High School;  Lynne St. Clare Foster, illustrator, art teacher and groundbreaker; Shirley Lightfoot, abstract and surrealist artist; and 12 year old Tanisee Nagaldinne.  Visit us on the web at www.greenburghartsandculture.org to see who’s on display in Greenburgh’s many galleries.
