About The Queen City Art Gallery

An innovative rotating exhibition space located at Montefiore New Rochelle, The Queen City Art Gallery is a collaboration between the Montefiore Fine Art Program and the New Rochelle Council on the Arts. The gallery exhibits original artwork and is open to all artists living and/or working in New Rochelle and Westchester County. This rotating exhibition program seeks to enrich the lives of the patients, caregivers, associates, students, faculty and the community’s understanding of contemporary art in a medical center context.

The Queen City Art Gallery strives to support Montefiore’s mission to heal, teach, discover and to advance the health of the communities we serve. Exhibitions feature a wide range of artwork with diversity in theme, medium and execution that appeals to a wide audience while being respectful of cultural backgrounds and the New Rochelle community. Montefiore New Rochelle will sponsor three exhibitions annually.

About Marisa Boan

As a Photographer: My photographs aim to capture the scenes in nature that often go overlooked. So much of our time is spent looking straight ahead that the beauty around us is overlooked. I spend my time looking up, looking around, and looking down. We see much more when we take the time to bend over or kneel down. A different perspective comes into view. This is what my photography hopes to capture. I do not want to capture what I and everyone else can see; I want to capture that which we must make an effort to see… that is what makes it all worthwhile.

As an Educator: My Famous Artist Children’s Books teach and inspire future artists in English and Spanish. Art appreciation and creation should be accessible to all regardless of the language they speak. My lessons teach important reading and writing skills using art and artists’ biographies.
