Photos from Cuba
On January 9, over 50 people came to the Westcott Community Center (WCC) Community Art Gallery to attend an opening reception for Reflections/Reflexiones, an exhibit of Elana Levys photographs of Cuba and elsewhere. Elana has lived in Syracuse for over 30 years and has been engaged in photography even longer. Her work has been exhibited at such local galleries as Altered Space and the Community Folk Art Gallery. Her photos have also appeared in the Syracuse Cultural Workers Peace Calendar, Covert Action Magazine, London Times, Syracuse Post Standard, and the Peace Newsletter. You can continue to view Elanas latest show through February 28. The WCC Community Art Gallery (located on the second floor of the WCC, 826 Euclid Ave.) is free and open to the public Monday thru Friday from 9 am - 5 pm or by calling 478-8634 to schedule an appointment.
elana levy, mother before all else,
paid to profess math,
after decades peacefully retired;
loves noticing quirks of light, and
listening to silence, weeks at a time.
expresses thoughts through words,
some in form and rhymed,
and images created from light,
as seen by lens and eye.
lets others know her deep beliefs
speaks peace in middle east
as jew, not by all appreciated.
breathes to become
open to all.
