The Nature of Reality
6:00 PM18:00

The Nature of Reality


Nikki Bacas, Eric Mittenzwei, and Kätlyn Wolff invite you to join them on an artistic exploration. Together we will experience the augmented reality and intense psychedelic inspiration they express through their art. These three artists have teamed up to bring you an immersive gallery experience complete with live performances and interactive artistic experiences.

Nikki, Eric and Katlyn are all Staten Island locals with a similar feel in their painting styles. Nikki is a multifaceted artist who often works with colored pencils, portraits and landscapes when she is not capturing one moment in time through fluid art. Eric is a self taught cartoonist and large-scale painter whose art explodes with texture. Katlyn is a professional artist whose paintings are abstract, metaphysical, and inspired by science, and occasionally works with graphic design.

While the three artists have their own unique style and path, their aesthetic and mentalities flow together concisely, allowing for a gallery collection which evokes the feeling of an acid trip at the start of summer. Come join them right after the Solstice to celebrate their hard work. There will be live performances, an interactive canvas, immersive lighting, indoor and outdoor spaces, and light snacks. 

This event is B.Y.O.B! We are asking for voluntary donations at the door to help keep our beloved art spaces thriving. Unless otherwise noted the original artwork hanging in the space will be for sale! Prints of select works will also be available for purchase.

Come, join in and question The Nature of YOUR Reality.

What is real?

What is real?


Open call for Women Artists to collaborate in a multi-medium art show in support of the SWAN (Support Women Artists Now) Movement!

Local Staten Island artists collaborate to celebrate and advocate the SWAN Day movement (Support Women Artist Now) on Saturday March 31, 2018 at Hub 17, 73 Wave Street, Staten Island, New York from 6 to 9 P.M. Showcasing a collection of various artworks to answer the question “What is Real?”

We have an open call for female identifying artists for the “What is Real? Art show on March 31 from 6 – 9:30 p.m. at Hub 17,  73 Wave Street, Staten Island, New York.

We are looking for visual art works with a maximum size of 14 inches by 16 inches.  There will also be tables available for small sculptures, prints and jewelry.

There will be a $10 hanging fee for the works we accept.  We will greatly appreciate contributions of food and drink to share at the event.

Artists have always banded together to create and inspire one another during duress of political upheaval and injustices.  Artists create works of art that reflect and combat the current political atmosphere. They use their talents to express themselves, what they are feeling and to contradict these negative trends hence inspiring the “What is Real?” SWAN DAY Art show.  Support Women Artists Now Day/SWAN Day is an annual international celebration of women’s creativity and gender parity activism held on the last Saturday of March.

Organized and curated by local artists and community advocate Anne Marie Grillasca, Renowned Stained Glass Artist Patti Kelly and Multimedia Artist Stephanie Kosinski.

Featured Artists include:

  • J Montana
  • Astrid Baran
  • Meg Graham
  • Patti Kelly
  • Stephanie Kosinski

Additional artists to be announced upon confirmation.

Hi! My name is ErinKelli Kilbane, and I am an artist and Special Education Teacher in a high poverty school in NYC. Last year I was accepted to the prestigious Teaching Fellows Program, which is an accelerated teaching certification pathway. Along the way I have formed lots of new friends and colleagues across public schools all over NYC, many of them also teaching students Special Needs.

Erin 2.jpeg

More often than not, public school budgets are minimal and are seriously lacking the supplies teachers need to create an engaging curriculum. In situations like these, acquiring necessary materials for instruction falls on our shoulders. We are a creative bunch of educators dedicated to the success of our students, but with limited time and monetary access, the burden becomes stressful. I am advocating for me and all my pedagogical colleagues when I ask for your help! 

Autism causes students to struggle with engagement, and school is no exception. I am constantly trying to find new and exciting ways to help my students remain engaged in instruction. 

ALL learners must be presented material in a variety of ways and given multiple opportunities to access and master a curriculum. 

Students with Autism often struggle with social interactions, activities of daily living, emotion regulation, fine motor skills, developmental cognitive delays, and sensory deficiencies. 

Play is serious learning for my students and the most effective strategy for engagement.

Erin 5.jpeg

Structured play encourages using problem solving skills for real world application. The methods I employ give students an active role in the learning process, rather than just being receivers of content.

I have taken this opportunity to collaborate with Hub17 Studio & Gallery to ask the public for donations of toys, supplies, and materials that otherwise will be discarded, to take to our classrooms. Drop off dates start the first week of January, and I will open the event up to all educators to take what they want free of charge on January 7.

            Give us your unwanted toys and supplies! We will take anything you’re willing to give but specifically look for educational items, office supplies, and items to teach activities of daily living.
