Abstract Reality: Greta Jaklitsch Photographs

RedSeptember 24— November 5

Opening Reception: Sept 24, 2-4pm

Unaltered, unfiltered, a glimpse of the world around us, Greta Jaklitsch photographs with 35mm film. Jaklitsch was one of the first artists shown at the Museum and this exhibition is a 20th Anniversary event.

Many of her most striking images are captured in parks, on walks, and observing things that are here in Queens. This exhibition brings together images that explore pattern or playfully abstract composition.

Online exhibition:

B & BFinding the Family: A Look into the Lives and Times of the Voelker-Orth Family

Finding the Family explores the lives of the Voelker Orth family through the local and historical happenings they experienced. The online exhibition highlights moments in the lives of Conrad, Theresa, and Elisabetha as we follow three generations of the family through the early 20th century.

The exhibition is organized by Carine Norvez, a tour guide at the Museum. She developed the exhibition while she was a CUNY Culture Corps intern studying items in our archive last year. Ms. Norvez has located period news articles and materials from a variety of sources to create a context for the papers and images left to the Museum. An audio text version accompanies the print.
