Life's precious moments captured in the Garment District
Located inside the Kaufman Arcade building on 132 West 36th Street, the free exhibit is accessible to the public through May 27.

NEW YORK, NY.- The Garment District Alliance today unveiled the latest in its ongoing series of public art exhibits, showcasing three works that symbolize profound moments in life. Crafted by New York City-based artists Patricia Cazorla and Nancy Saleme, the exhibit will feature, Nostalgia, Where The Warm Light Hides, and Across the Bridge.

Located inside the Kaufman Arcade building on 132 West 36th Street, the free exhibit is accessible to the public through May 27. These works are part of the Garment District Space for Public Art program, which showcases artists in unusual locations throughout the year.

“Nostalgia, Where The Warm Light Hides and Across the Bridge are wonderful, inspiring works of art that truly capture the creative and imaginative essence of our neighborhood,” said Barbara Blair Randall, president of the Garment District Alliance. “Patricia and Nancy are both tremendously talented artists, and we are thrilled to help showcase their work through the Garment District Space for Public Art.”

Nostalgia, by Nancy Saleme, is a series of digital photographs presented on a wooden panel that are intended to capture life’s fleeting moments. Through photographing intimate corners of her home in Brooklyn that are filled with orchids, these pieces reveal the artist’s personal memories and longing of a country she once left.

Inspired by the events that have had a profound impact on her life, Patricia Cazorla created Where The Warm Light Hides through utilizing photographs taken of items that were treasured by her grandmother, as well as her childhood home. Cazorla recreated these images through drawings and watercolors, and scanned her work onto a computer to experiment with new dimensions and vibrant colors.

Designed by both Saleme and Cazorla, Across the Bridge is a tribute to the Amtrak Dock Vertical Lift, a bridge built in 1937 that spans the Passaic River in Newark, NJ, and carries train traffic. This portrait symbolizes life’s challenges, the migrations that shape society, new horizons and confrontation with the unknown.

Cazorla and Saleme are an aunt-and-niece duo who began working together in 2010 with a focus on immigration issues – specifically undocumented farm workers in the United States. Since then, they have been awarded various prestigious exhibitions and commissions around the world. The two were selected to participate in the DUMBO Arts Festival in 2013 and were commissioned by Taller Puertorriqueño, Philadelphia, funded by the Knight Foundation. Most recently, Cazorla and Saleme were granted with the Puffin Foundation Visual Arts Award, a solo exhibition at Bronx Community College for Women’s History Month in 2016.

The Garment District is home to thousands of people working in the "creative economy,” including fine and performing artists, designers, architects, photographers and more than a hundred theaters, galleries, performance spaces and studios.
