Elisa Contemporary Art is 1 of 7 galleries and the Bronx Gallery for Curate NYC!

Elisa Contemporary Art's newest exhibit opens on Tuesday, October 29, 2013.   

We are  thrilled to be showing 25 artists, selected from over 1,900 entries from the recent 2013 Curate NYC competition. 

Curate NYC, a month-long citywide festival of art exhibitions, and a permanent online showcase of New York City artists, is developed and produced by Brian Tate & Danny Simmons in partnership with the New York City Economic Development Corporation. They selected 7 galleries -- one in each borough (and 3 in Manhattan)-- to showcase winners.  We were selected as the Bronx gallery!

Our exhibit will open on Tuesday, October 29 and run through November 23, 2013.

Our 25 artists include: 7 from the Bronx, 8 each from Manhattan and Brooklyn, and 2 from Queens. The artwork captures moments, places, nature and cultures - both real and imagined - from around the world including West Africa, Greenland, Paris and the Bronx!

Please join us for our opening reception on Tuesday, October 29th from 6-8pm and a closing reception on Saturday, November 16th from 5-7pm
