It’s fall, and you know what that means. No, I’m not talking about the return of pumpkin spice, though I guess that’s true as well. Fall also means a wealth of cultural events right here on Staten Island. Today we’re going to take a closer look at a couple of upcoming events.

Staten Island Jazz Festival | Saturday October 15th

Staten Island Jazz Festival 2016

First up, we’ve got this weekend’s Staten Island Jazz Festival. The festival, which is scheduled for tomorrow (Saturday, October 15th) at Snug Harbor Cultural Center.

The Art of Karen Y Buster | Saturday, October 22nd


Also from 12pm to 7pm on Saturday October 22nd, HUB 17 hosts an artist invitational for which award-winning Baltimore artist, Karen Y. Buster will exhibit her work over one week. The exhibition will conclude with a taped conversation on the psychology of art and a by-invitation private event.

For over 36 years, Buster has perfected a unique technique to produce hand-cut serigraphs. Using the blade of her precision knife, Karen cuts out negative and positive spaces to create powerful, rhythmic, geometric shapes.
