Join us for the debut exhibition of artist Galina Galmer who will display her work at the Sam Field Center from November 15, 2019 through January 1, 2020. The public is welcome to view the exhibition during the hours the building is open.
Galmer reveals raw emotions for the viewer through her unique abstracts. Of her work, Galina says, “Each painting I create is a portrait of my soul. Each painting is, therefore, my self-portrait. Being an introvert, it is very difficult to express feelings. They tend to build up and trigger tension. After decades of adulthood, I finally found the way to peace for my soul through art. My emotions became my driving forces. Painting became my poetry…I found a safe place for my thoughts and experiences on my canvases. Using colors I developed a sense of greater strength and a new voice for my deepest feelings, fears, and insecurities. Life started to be more colorful and spontaneous. I feel reborn.”

LIC: Inspiring Innovation
Fresh, inventive, original – these are all words that continue to define LIC, even as it evolves into a new and unique kind of neighborhood. LIC has been a historic home for industry and innovation, with its location and transportation as key assets. Today, LIC has also become a highly attractive live-work-recreate talent hub, broadening the range of industries that are looking to make LIC their home, and bolstered by Cornell Tech, creating an additional pipeline that will look to LIC for space and support.
This year’s Summit will explore how LIC is paving the way for innovative leaders in the fields of co-living and co-working, entrepreneurship, life science, and mobility thanks in part to all that LIC has to offer.
The next meeting of Queens County Bird Club will feature a presentation “Nocturnal Neighbors: The Bats of New York City” by Kaitlyn Parkins.
Bats, one of the largest mammal groups, play a vital role in our ecosystem, even in New York City. Kaitlyn Parkins, a conservation biologist for New York City Audubon, will discuss the secret lives of the bats that live in and migrate through the city—who is here, what they are doing, and where to find them. She will present findings from over five years of research, including how bats use green roofs as foraging habitat. She will also discuss the threats to our bat populations and some of the work being done to mitigate these threats.
Parkins studied at Fordham University, receiving a master’s degree in ecology and a graduate certificate in conservation biology. Her other field work includes monitoring bird-building collisions in the city and studying beach-nesting shorebirds and colonial waterbirds in the NY Harbor.
