LASTING LEGACIES highlights the work of four dynamic elder artists from BCA’s Creating A Living Legacy (CALL) Program: Ellsworth Ausby, Xenobia Bailey, Honey Kassoy, and Olga Kitt (pictured clockwise).. This exhibition features their sculptures, paintings, graffiti and textile art.

BCA CALL is an outgrowth of the Joan Mitchell Foundation CALL program that connects elder artists with BCA-trained Legacy Specialists who teach CALL artists how to document and archive their life’s work.

Dubbed: Lady K Fever, an installation by Lady K Fever (Kathleena Howie) and curated by Bronx artist and 2013 BCA BRIO winner Laura Napier, is a fresh, innovative installation ─ the artist’s first solo New York City exhibition.

Working in the Gallery’s Project Room during the days prior to her opening, Lady K Fever will remix her own work, layering graffiti vernacular, drawings, paintings on plexiglass and cardboard, razor wire, transparencies, found objects, and selfies with her signature abstract expressive flora and botanicals.

A successful night was in the bag as BCA and BRIO Cafe presented an evening of poetry and tea at Longwood Art Gallery @ Hostos on April 22nd. BRIO provided the poets and Serengeti Teas & Spices provided the tea.
