Columns & Caryatids: Exhibition Tour and Creative Workshop with Artist
Join exhibiting artist Kristi Pfister for a gallery walk where Pfister will share how the ideas and concepts around Columns & Caryatids informed her use of art materials and various processes.  Working in the Main Hall Gallery space, participants will make a small sculptural column using the same process as Pfister.  Be inspired by Snug Harbors Greek Revival architecture, Greek caryatids, Dorothy Day, or bring images of someone that inspires you to incorporate into your piece.

Columns & Caryatids is an exhibition of mixed media work where artist Kristi Pfister creates a forest of suspended translucent columns, monumental wall drawings, oil paintings, and intimate tile-sized work.  The installation explores the concept of columns as iconic symbols of democracy and strength, introduces Dorothy Day as a modern-day caryatid leading a procession of activism, and brings awareness to the historic Greek Revival architecture of Snug Harbor.

Kristi Pfister is a painter and public artist.  She studied Visual Art at Barnard College, Columbia University and received her masters degree from Pratt Institute.  Pfister exhibits throughout the region and New York City.  Her public artwork includes grants from the Percent for Art Program, the NYC Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, and the Staten Island Zoo.  Pfister is a strong advocate for Art Education, having worked as a teaching artist with many arts organizations, schools and cultural institutions in NYC.
