JH Art Talks began in December 2016 as a means to address the lack of exhibition venues and meeting places for Queens-based artists and art lovers. Since then, artists have been invited to present their work on the second Wednesday of most every month. The project is organized by artist Linda Ganjian.
JH Art Talks’ mission is to acknowledge and celebrate the wealth of artistic talent in Jackson Heights (and nearby Queens neighborhoods) by giving individual artists a platform to present their work to their community, and by giving the community a chance to be inspired by these artists. The selected artists represent diverse ages, cultures, and perspectives.
In light of the COVID pandemic, we have moved our talks online. In pre-COVID times, we were grateful to have Espresso 77 cafe/gallery as our host, and we look forward to physically meeting up again.
This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Queens Council on the Arts.
We’d also like to thank our fiscal sponsor the Jackson Heights Beautification Group.
Thank you to local photographic artist Marcus Longmuir, also known as ANIOTUS (A Naturalized Immigrant Of The United States), for building out our website. Visit www.longmuirs.com/fineart to see his gallery of work.
