Rita Fuchsberg

Fuchsberg’s recent work includes highly textural acrylic paintings created with a palette knife. Her past body of work includes portraits from a project called ‘Ladies in Waiting’ 40 portraits of women on death row, which first showed in SoHo, New York. When asked for a brief bio, Rita responded “I’ve been an artist since as long as I can remember. I earned a master’s degree in art therapy from Pratt and worked in that field for several years.”


At the Bazaar, Dream, and I Can’t Decide, Irene Minkoff

Irene Minkoff

Irene hails from Bronx, New York and now lives in Manhattan. She loves to spend time in Poultney, Vermont near her sister. She has an advanced degree in social work but having retired she enjoys photography, playing the piano, going to the ballet, volunteering with immigrants struggling to learn English and navigate New York City, as well as spending time with her family.

Of her work for I know what I saw, Irene explains “Television talks at us 24 hours a day. Mine started saying different things to me. Images combined and coalesced fleetingly. I felt compelled to hunt them and watch until they beckoned to me. These few canvases represent the countless hours of staring at broken televisions until those crazy images spoke their own kind of sense.”

“I think most of the work is thought-provoking and I’m very interested in knowing what others see because the potential is there for each person to see something different.”
