Debra Priestly  |  TRANSIT by Eleanor Dubinsky

On View from May 04, 2007 – June 09, 2007

Bronx River Art Center kicks off the spring with two solo exhibitions by New York artists, Debra Priestly and Eleanor Dubinsky. Priestly’s mixed media works offer intimate stories about her personal and collective African American history through a metaphorical use of photographic imagery that reconciles past and current events. Dubinsky’s TRANSIT, a multiple-channel video installation, interweaves the artist’s own travels and life changes with her exploration of how people get from one place to another throughout the world. TRANSIT will move from the Bronx River Art Center’s gallery into the surrounding neighborhood through a series of improvised dance performances.
