Day 26: Vela Shtern

It is a truly powerful work of art that inspires its audience to create.  I love conversations between artists spanning days or generations or even millenia as seen through their works.  This poem I wrote after spending an evening at the Anton Kern Gallery looking at the spectacular paintings of Ellen Berkenblit.  It was like walking into the diary of a New York City artist party girl that spanned at least a hundred years.  I named her Vela Shtern.  You will see some images of Ellen's electric paintings in the poem video below.  You can also buy the art book of these paintings here.
