Match sticks with personality.

The work on display at the Northern Manhattan Art Alliance’s (NoMAA) current show is vast in both scope and originality.
“Women in the Heights—Reflections on Creating” is the fifth annual show devoted solely to female artists.
It is arguably NoMAA’s most ambitious offering to date. The show features the work of 25 female artists from a larger swath of Northern Manhattan. In addition to Washington Heights and Inwood artists, submissions were opened up to include women from Harlem and East Harlem.
