Female Centric
Aug

Female Centric

FemaleCentric is an empowerment event meant to remind women as well as men to celebrate feminine prominence and uplift the women in their own lives. 
Our event opens with an urban fashion show. Followed by an informal public discussion between several panelists. This year at FemaleCentric 3 the focus is on women in male dominated fields. As well as how to inspire your girls to try hobbies and professions outside of the gender norm. The rest of the evening will be conducted as a fluid festival that includes performances by local female legends, photographers, visual artists, poets, and so much more.

While predominantly showcasing women, we are also giving our male counterparts a chance to shine as “gentlemen” for the evening. They are included as helping hands in our music, art, fashion, and intellect production.

As lovers of women we have decided to give back to our female community by making a charity choice. Good Counsel of Staten Island is non-profit that works to improve the lives of women with child. By accepting any pregnant woman, regardless of financial situation into their housing programs. They provide homes for any pregnant women in dire need. This includes teen moms and battered women.

So come out and support the women making moves in this community. 

For more information on the Good Counsel visit www.goodcounselhomes.org

Coney Island a Retrospect-Reception

robert jaffe flyer1.jpg

This Retrospect was and is an act of love. Shot in Black and White in one day. I used my Nikon F with Pan-X film and my twin lens Rolli with Pan-X film as well. Most of the 35mm film was developed using Dektol (paper developer) because of
the very contrasty sky. The rest, plus the 2-1/4 film were processed normal. All 35mm film was digitized using a
Nikon CoolScan. The 2-1/4 was scanned using a friends scanner. All were scanned using VueScan software.

"State Of The Art" Micro Exhibit Reception

A 4 DAY EXHIBITION FROM THURSDAY March  2 -5TH

Gene Wagner,  I was born in 1970 in Hempstead Ive been drawing since I was a kid and growing up in a poor neighborhood I was subjected to a lot of street art .as I went through school my focus was always on art and drawing and painting. Through highschool I left home at 15 and made extra money painting peoples jackets and drawing tattoos , when I finished high school I had a partial art scholarship but couldn't get a loan so I went to the library and learned all I could and just kept copying all the masters from Raphael and carravaggio to Picasso and Pollock. I met my ex wife and she convinced me to get a regular job and I walked away from my dream till my divorce at 33 and I picked up the brush again moved home to new York city and haven't stopped painting since. I helped start occupy wall street to fight the foreclosures and was part of the original drum circle, we led marches and protests and even made an album called " occupy this album" for the movement. Then when the hurricane came we started "Occupy Sandy" here in staten island and helped raise money for the victims and using the internet to get donations directly to the victims by delivering medical supplies and food and clothing and rebuilding supplies for people who the insurance companies forgot. I wound up moving here because I loved the island so much and the people treated me like family.
