I will always love the print medium!
Ellen Weider is a printmaker who uses the medium of drypoint. She is preoccupied with an examination of domestic objects. Her visual terrain is repeatedly populated with diaristic contemplations of ordinary furniture: dressers, chairs, tables, beds.

A study shows that air pollution could make me anxious. I still think it's the climate deniers!

Fracking infrastructure is a major part of the environmental fight. The ban is NY State is not the last word. Learn more:
When Governor Andrew Cuomo decided to ban fracking in New York State in December 2014, New Yorkers rejoiced and thought their worries were over. They were wrong. It was a great start, but the state is riddled with infrastructure that supports the fracking industry through...

It is hard to hold such totally contradictory thoughts in my mind, but I have to because they are both true. Divorce gave me a new life, but divorce also destroyed the life I always hoped and dreamed I'd have, and I still mourn the loss of it....

Story

Writer/Artist/Activist
Introduction
I come out of the visual arts, with over 20 years as a practicing artist. As a curator, I have focused on amplifying the voices of women, with an emphasis on diversity.

These activities led to a parallel career in writing, activism, and new media. My area of concentration is women's issues, culture, and human rights.

I co-founded CultureID, a platform to amplify the work of those in the arts creating culture with political intent and social content.

The slightest thing can create an issue for my vision. He has always been patient with me, and sticks with me until I can see properly. I can't say enough about how important that is. Kudos all around!

Love this place. I'm new to Riverdale, and have become addicted to the chocolate, mocha, apricot cake. Carrot cake is good, unless you are on a diet. A box of the lacey cookies make a great gift! Still lots of items I want to try. I usually make a piece of cake last for several nights. This way I don't have to feel guilty. Service very friendly. Ask for Valentina. Tell her Marcia sent you!
