Riverdale Gallery to Exhibit at International Art Fair

Artist: Kimber Berry
Title: Liquid Landscape 628.060708
Medium: Mixed Media on Canvas
Year: 2008

If you like the above piece of stunning artwork by Kimber Berry, you may just want to head down to Bridge New York, an international art fair taking place from March 5th through March 8th at the Waterfront Building (222 12th Avenue at 27th Street). Elisa Tucci Contemporary Art Gallery, Riverdale's only contemporary art gallery, will be showing at the fair. Elisa Tucci represents Kimber Berry, along with many other talented artists from around the world.

Founded by Joan Daidone and Lisa Cooper (a Riverdale resident) this past fall, Elisa Tucci Contemporary Art Gallery's mission is to "change the world through art." This is not just an abstract or idealistic marketing tagline: Elisa Tucci donates 5% of all sales (not just profits) to charitable organizations that help disadvantaged children and their families heal through art. Free Arts NYC, a nonprofit arts education and mentoring program in the South Bronx, is one of the organizations Elisa Tucci supports.
