Hi-ARTS Gallery, Jill Newman Productions, and The Blue Note Jazz Festival are proud to present A Rose in Spanish Harlem featuring the works of Sandra Fabara aka Lady Pink, renowned painter, muralist, educator and iconic figure in the world of fine art, graffiti, and street art. This exhibition displays prints, paintings, and woodcuts that illustrate varying stages of her creative output over the past several years. Both fantastical and surreal, Lady Pink braids both a lived life and imagined life into her paintings. Often choosing the female figure or her name as a landmark she constructs narratives around femininity, solace, empowerment, and belonging into her works.
