A wise man once advised me to do what makes you happy with your art. I followed his advice.
I love puzzles, words, puns, and slang, so combined with collage, mixed Media, assemblage and painting, I am happy with what I do. My life has been filled with the acquisition of retro treasures, my own and from loved ones. I incorporate these treasures into my work.
In 1990, I was chosen for Discoveries VI, a New York City funded art show which toured the five boroughs for one year. My collage “Do you remember?” became their logo.
In 2001, 2007 and 2009, I had exhibits in Soho, New York City. My husband, a TV scenic designer, and I, joined Southampton Artists and curated five shows a year for nine years. Later, I served as President of the Association for two years.
At one of my exhibits, a viewer remarked, ”Looking at Ms. Levitas’ work is like reading a John Steinbeck novel.”
The wise man’s advice was from my husband, Willard Levitas. He will be remembered when we visit and enjoy the Levitas Center for the Arts in Southampton.
