Brian K. Mahoney, Chronogram Magazine editor writes:
"Born in Argentina, Elisa Pritzker has made the Hudson Valley her home for over 20 years, and has helped to shape the evolution of the regional arts scene in that time, first with the Highland Cultural Center, a multidisciplinary arts organization, then through the Pritzker Gallery at Casa del Arte, and through her own work. Pritzker has received two Congressional Service Awards from Rep. Maurice Hinchey in recognition of her contribution to the cultural community. An artist at home in a variety of media, Pritzker has exhibited across the US and the globe. The Gothic Art Paper, from her "Lonely Hearts Club" series, will be shown at the Art Complex in Tokyo later this year. In May, Pritzker will exhibit a solo show on environmental themes, "Project Fresh Green," at the Mill Street Loft in Poughkeepsie…” February 2009
