ABOUT THE EXHIBIT | Manny Cantor Center is excited to highlight the service of our veteran teaching artist, Barbara Slitkin with her work titled “A House Cat’s Guide to the Galaxy”. This work is an adventurous collection of fantasy paintings, ceramics, and mixed media that playfully personifies earthly and celestial life as guided by a black and white cat. Through clay, collage, paint, and a lively stretch of imagination, Barbara embarks on a meditation celebrating the 21-year life of her now deceased family cat, Shayna, and the cat’s continued presence in the artist’s life as a soul transcending space and time.

ABOUT THE ARTIST | Barbara is currently an instructor for MCC’s Weinberg Center for Balanced Living, and Educational Alliance’s NORC Coop Village, and has been an educator serving Educational Alliance community programs for over 20 years. In addition to working with WCBL and NORC, Barbara has taught with Educational Alliance Art School, the 14th Street Y, and at various other Educational Alliance programs. Barbara Slitkin’s art has been shown worldwide, and in collections both public and private, including the The Museum of Modern Art here in New York City.
