Art on Bay

Not a single day goes by that one is not impressed by the vast array of talent which is so rampant in Staten Island and specifically on the North Shore. Cultural organizations such as the ones listed here add culture and education to our community and should never be overlooked.

On Friday, May 1st, walk leader Claudia Toback is taking one of MAS NYC’s free guided Jane’s Walks in Stapleton. The event, called “The past and future for Stapleton” will take New Yorkers on a tour of the historic Stapleton, and shine a light into what the future holds for the Staten Island community.

Filmmaker, Don Arangio, is quickly becoming the viral sensation of Staten Island’s North Shore. After the runaway success of his quirky short film “10am” last month, Arangio recently started making rounds on the web again, this time for a photograph of a rainbow shining on the Staten Island Ferry.

Great news! Labyrinth Arts Collective, Inc. has been invited by Ettore Mazzei, owner of Chez Vous Caterers and Publisher of This Way on Bay, to curate three Second Saturday Events July through September, 2015.

The Staten Island LGBT Center holds monthly art exhibitions and workshops for those interested in art by the community. This month’s show was also part of the Second Saturday Staten Island art walk and a delightful potluck dessert event was planned.

Staten Island pop-punk trio, Everything Ever, is performing at Flagship Brewery this Friday, April 3rd.

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of announcing in one of my posts that there is an event taking place in Stapleton as the result of a grant which was awarded this year to the Historic Tappen Park Community Partnership (HTPCP) by NYC in order to unify Stapleton. A meeting concerning this was held on March 25th and guidelines were distributed regarding the submission process for artists to participate.

The Flesh Junkies

Even after being spotlighted in The Advance’s “Best of Staten Island: Cover Bands” poll last year, there’s a good chance you haven’t heard of The Flesh Junkies. The zombie punk cabaret outfit is one of the island’s most intriguing acts in years. This Friday, March 25th they’ll be performing live in the Mezzanine Lounge of the St. George Theater.
