SIAM is a diverse group of Staten Island artists and artisans who have joined together to promote and sell their unique creations.  With everything from origami flowers  to original works of art, there is something for everybody and every budget.
 
Learn about the individual artists and artisans on the artist page.  Read about their creative process, what inspires them, what they are working on and where you can purchase their products.  Many of the artists welcome the opportunity to create custom items, so if you are looking for something specific contact the artisan.

People seek out fine art and handmade goods for various reasons.  Some people love decorating with and owning one of a kind art..... others like the idea of supporting local artisans which in turn supports their community......then there is the eco friendly nature of items made by local artisans that comes from less packaging and shipping of the products......  and of course there is nothing more special than giving or receiving a truly unique gift.

The Great Richmond

Staten Island Arts is pleased to present “The Great Richmond” a crowd-sourced public sculpture/interactive diagram that is a collaboration between cartographer and urban theorist Neil Greenberg and sculptor Will Corwin.
 
Corwin and Greenberg have collaborated on a monumental game-based installation that invites participants to re-imagine Staten Island, and their own particular environment, as they might want it to be: by turns a return to a semi-mythological sylvan and pastoral utopia, a much more built-up urban metropolis—a continuation of Manhattan and Jersey City across the harbor, or, on a controversial note, a seceded Staten, a new city in the constellation of the northeast corridor.
 
For The Great Richmond, Greenberg and Corwin researched the history of Staten Island, explored its many neighborhoods and invented a set of pieces and a human-scale “board” within which to organize the pieces.  The images that inspire the pieces include Henry David Thoreau (an inhabitant of S.I.), the island's world-famous reptile house, Bathtub Madonnas, the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art, and The Staten Island Mall.  Though not with a focus on winning or losing, the guidelines for activating the sculpture are geared to creating an accumulation of images and objects that acts both as a sculpture and a data set that can be plumbed for conclusions about the islands inhabitants and its visitors.

Artist Statement:  
I paint because I have to: it’s the only way I have of expressing my very active inner life.  My painting is an emotional journey through intuition, memory and sensation.  I use nature as my vehicle to imbue a sense of luminous chroma and light into a realm of visual beauty that transcends commonplace reality. Art allows me to challenge dissect, and make decisions on elements that are intellectual and intangible in the physical aspect of living.  It also colors the physical, and intrudes in everything I do.

Suspended in Amber: New Works by Angela Muriel

Ms. Muriel is a painter, naturalist and native New Yorker. She has had a fascination with insects as subject matter for many years. She says of this body of paintings and drawings:
 
I reference fossils of insects in my current series of works. I am not attempting to create a realistic representation but am rather attracted to the texture of the stone, the traces of history and of the elements. The animals are etched into the stone and remain as evidence of a moment in time. 
 
The exhibition opens on Saturday, October 11, 2014 with a reception (part of Second Saturday Staten Island) from 6 -9pm. The show is open to the public during Center hours, Monday through Friday from 1 to 8 PM, through October.

Music & Civil Rights

Singer Jeannine Otis will join Allergic to B's Joan Moore & Gary Moore, to perform music of the American Civil Rights movement, which underscored key events that coincided with the publication of “To Kill a Mockingbird”. In fact, some of those events occurred in Selma, Birmingham and Montgomery, Alabama, not far from Harper Lee’s hometown of Monroeville, Alabama (the inspiration for Mockingbird’s fictional town of Maycomb, Alabama).

We’ll read & discuss excerpts from the novel, together with texts concerning some of the flashpoints in the American civil rights movement that Mockingbird helped catalyze.

We’ll consider the 60th anniversaries of the death of Emmett Till, and of the U. S. Supreme Court’s historic school desegregation decision. We’ll explore texts concerning the Scottsboro Boys, which partly inspired the courtroom chapter in “Mockingbird”.
