Flying High Paul Deo Mural at The Corner Social

The winner of the Corner Social mural competition is Paul Deo.  Congratulations to Paul and to all of the finalists for participating.  I think it is great that Corner Social and the Harlem Arts Alliance involved the community with this mural project for the restaurant.  The mural is very much in character with the comfortable vibe of this popular neighborhood hangout mixing a modern future with an historic past.

The outdoor mural is scheduled to be unveiled on Tuesday, November 27, 2012.  This will add a colorful and artistic addition to the already historic architecture and restaurants on Lenox Avenue.

If you would like to read more about the Mural Competition and what lead up to this, please see our previous post below…

I just learned more details about the after party talking place this Monday, February 14 for the Girls Night Out screening of Jumping the Broom. The after party will take place at Hue-Man Book Store around 9 p.m. when the screening is expected to end. Those that get into the film screening of Jumping the Broom will receive tickets to go to the after party at Hue-Man!

In addition to HarlemCondoLife.com being a partner for Girls Night Out screening of Jumping the Broom and now Hue-Man, I have also learned that Harlem Arts Alliance, Nectar Wine Bar, Bikram Yoga, Twirl, BodyHeat by NyLean25, Munaluchi Bridal Magazine, and the planned Cupcake Suite are partners as well! And don’t forget, the after party will include complementary hair styling and make-up application from Empire Beauty School and giveaways from SendHerFlowers.com, Complete Body and Spa, and 8 Minute Dating.

So if you want to attend this after party, you need a ticket to the film screening. Go here to get your ticket.  I must stress, there are no guarantees on ticketing, as in most things in life!

Watercolors by Lynn Lieberman

By HarlemGal for HarlemCondoLIfe

Since our inception well over a year ago, HarlemCondoLife (HCL) has been introduced to several interesting people living and working in Harlem-particularly local artists who have a positive link to Harlem. HCL would like to introduce  some of these individuals to you, along with their work, in hope that you will be moved and amazed by the wealth of talent that lives right here in our Harlem community. We certainly are impressed and excited to have you meet some of these talented individuals on our blog site. To help us kick off our first HCL Artist Profile, first up is a local watercolorist. In a Q&A (questions and answers) format, meet Lynn Lieberman in her own words on Harlem in watercolor.

Watercolors by Lynn Lieberman

What is your area of specialty? And why do you feature Harlem in your art work?
My primary area is watercolor. I live, work and create right here in Harlem.  Most of my work is small format-note cards of everything from the famous Lenox Lounge to Apollo Theater to Lee Lee’s Bakery, where Mr. Lee displays my painting of his bakery. In an effort to capture more of Harlem, last year I created a watercolor map of Harlem, which was updated this year and can be viewed on my website.

As for why Harlem, we have street after street of graceful prewar buildings, each with their own unmistakable curves and lines. Many have been home to the people who reside there for decades, and signs of love and longevity protrude from window boxes, along with flower pots and signs in the windows.

Watercolors by Lynn Lieberman

Does Harlem move and inspire your art work?
Inspiration here in Harlem is endless for a watercolorist.  No matter how many times I walk the streets of Harlem, I always see something different and new to paint, from the Harlem Meer in the Fall to Fields Court at Christmas to the colorful Minton’s Jazz Club, Mike’s Newsstand on 122nd Street and Lenox Avenue, and to Tonnie’s Minis, where they also display my note card painting of the place.

Watercolors by Lynn Lieberman

Is it challenging to use Harlem in your work?
The only challenge to painting Harlem is what to leave out.

Aside from watercoloring Harlem, HCL has to ask what are some of your favorite things about it?
Harlem Seasons. At the first sign of Spring and all through the Summer, window sills are abound with color right up until Halloween pumpkins and Christmas trees with lights. No Holiday is forgotten here.

Watercolor by Lynn Lieberman

Harlem people. Where else in this City can you find people sitting on the sidewalk in their beach chairs enjoying a beautiful Summer evening or barbecuing in front of their building?

Harlem has a plethora of green space from our major Parks to our local Green Thumb gardens-giving us easy access to hours of walking or bike riding from the minute we walk out our front door.

Watercolors by Lynn Lieberman

Our diversity is great. I was born here in the City and have lived in a variety of places over the years, always returning home. Harlem is a place where I feel most comfortable and the place where I live with my family.

And Harlem has s vibrant art community with plenty of ongoing events at the Studio Museum of Harlem, the Harlem Arts Alliance and Casa Frela Gallery, which represents my work.

In full disclosure, I have purchased notecards from Lynn as gifts. They were a hit on the receiving end with friends and family. Don’t miss out on seeing Lynn’s work in person. Her work is currently hanging, with framed pieces for sale , at Native Restaurant and Il Caffe Latte-both on Lenox Avenue and for sale unframed at www.afinelyne.com

And if you know of a local artist we should spotlight on HCL, who resides in Harlem and their work is linked to all things positive about Harlem, please send your recommendations to feedback@harlemcondolife.com.
