Jicky, long-time volunteer and full-time staffer, is passionate about our work. She is also passionate about her landscape photography. Here, Jicky captured the graceful elegance of Bow Bridge in Central Park during a blizzard in 2006. The second oldest cast-iron bridge in America, completed in 1862, Bow Bridge is an all-season favorite setting for lovers, dreamers, New Yorkers and visitors from the world over.

Grandma Moses, was born in 1860 and lived for 101 years. She first painted as a child using lemon and grape juice, ground ochre, grass and flour, creating "old-timey" upstate rural New York and Vermont landscapes. It was the New York art collector Louis Caldor, while traveling upstate in 1938, who saw her paintings hanging in a country drug store and bought them all and ten more at Grandma Moses's house for 3-$5 for each. In 2006, "Sugaring Off" was sold for $1.2 million. Inspired by Currier & Ives, reminiscent of Pieter Bruegel the Elder, honored by U.s. presidents, beloved by millions, Grandma Moses celebrated the simple, the good and the affirmative, such that her artwork is especially appropriate for holidays.
"A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to You" was shown on the first commercially available Christmas card in 1843, the year of the publication of Charles Dickens' Christmas Carol. It was around that time, in the early part of the reign of Queen Victoria, that Christmas as many now know it was invented. Christmases had been merry long before that though, dating back to at least 1534, when the English bishop John Fisher sent the greetings in a letter to the decidedly unmerry Thomas Cromwell. Needless to say, the seasonal greeting survived Cromwell and is widely used 482 years later!

Dave Beckerman might be called, "the people's photographer." Born in the Bronx, self-taught, experienced through trial and error, Dave had his first darkroom when he was fifteen, and for many years since then has walked around the city taking pictures. He says, just as we can see here, "inspiration is not a problem, it is everywhere."
