No Dumping Drains to River is a shopping cart stroll along 14th Street from the East River to the Hudson River, continuing Lederer’s decade long practice of keeping an eye to the ground, on the lookout for discards for the artist to later transform from trash to treasure.

Exhibiting artists include: Miguel Braceli | Louis Brawley | Royal Brown Jr.| Sydney Cash | Adam Chau | Monica d. Church | Melissa Dadourian | Shoshana Dentz | Dan Devine | Adriana Farmiga | Daniel Giordano | Romina Gonzales | Meg Hitchcock | Laetitia Hussain | Will Hutnick | Niki Lederer | Elisa Lendvay | Ashley Lyon | Patricia Miranda | Joel Olzak | Courtney Puckett | Jordan Rosenow | Julie Torres | Katharine Umsted | Melissa Weaver | Millicent Young.
The Material, The Thing considers how artists understand and reimagine the material culture we live in. Every time we walk into a big box store, we are inundated by meaningless disposable things. We have collectively lost an understanding of the materials that make the things we live with. Who even knows how plywood is made, or what microcrystalline cellulose is, but we all have it in our homes. In this cultural moment, artists and artisans become an essential conduit of understanding the materials and the things in our society.
Artists and artisans submitted work that investigates materials and their physical and cultural properties. We looked to see artistic practices that consider the inherent beauty of physical materials and work that questions or champions the things produced by our culture.

Re: Growth is a site-specific public art exhibition that will include work by over twenty artists. With diverse installations ranging across several miles, this outdoor exhibit will give people a safe, entertaining celebration to enjoy as we slowly emerge from the pandemic.
The exhibit will focus on all aspects of Regrowth and its many connotations: literal, metaphorical, poetic, philosophical. The projects will infuse the park from 68th Street to 145th Street with color and unexpected materials expanding visitors’ ideas of how to encounter art. We all are finding the need to escape the confines of our interior spaces. Trees and grass allow us to escape our urban environment for a moment; Re:Growth will enrich that experience, allowing us to appreciate the creativity and diversity that exist in New York City.
The exhibition includes 16 site-specific installations and an additional ten flag and banner projects. Artists Include: Blanka Amezkua, Kenseth Armstead, Vanessa Albury, Lee Boroson, Dahlia Elsayed,Mark Joshua Epstein,Rico Gatson, DeWitt Godfrey, Joshua Goode, Valerie Hegarty, Wennie Huang, Beth Krebs, Sadie Laska, Niki Lederer, Wendy Letven, LoVid, Mary Mattingly, Joiri Minaya, Sui Park, Shuli Sadé, Jean Shin, Glen Wilson, Letha Wilson, Woolpunk.
Now, more than ever.
Excited to participate in Wassaic Project’s Summer Exhibition, Now, more than ever.

Pelham Art Center presents a public exhibition of sculpture by Niki Lederer in Wolfs Lane Park and at the Pelham Art Center. Niki Lederer reclaims discarded objects to create her sculpture. Dissected and reassembled plastic bottles lend a playful juxtaposition of organic and flat that emerges through the artist’s spontaneous, intuitive process.
Sculptures featured in Wolf’s Lane Park and Pelham Art Center’s courtyard.
Featured in the Pelham Examiner!
The Pelham Art Center will host its first annual Community Art Day on Sunday, June 2nd, from 12-4pm. Join the Art Center as they kick off summer with all-afternoon art festivities throughout the courtyard, gallery, studios and media lab.
Interactive art will fill the Fifth Avenue courtyard, where attendees can take part in a number of colorful community projects. Brooklyn artist Niki Lederer will assemble a recycled art installation onsite, making a vibrant reflection on environmental impact. Attendees can witness the spirit of spontaneity and sustainability in Lederer’s work.
In addition to her sculpture, her colorful flags made of repurposed umbrellas will be a sneak peek of her coming exhibition in Wolfs Lane Park this summer. The Art Center courtyard will be adorned with art made by community participants.
Community Art Day is a celebration of Pelham Art Center’s mission to strengthen community by fostering arts participation and appreciation. In anticipation of its 50th Anniversary, the Art Center opens its doors for old friends and newcomers alike to experience all that the Art Center offers. Looking forward to the semi-centennial, Executive Director Charlotte Mouquin says, “We greatly hope to see you and share our visions for the Art Center at Community Art Day. Being relatively new to Pelham and the Art Center, I embrace opportunities to meet our constituents and supporters. This event recalls our roots in the 1970 Pelham Art Happening.”
This event is free and open to the public, rain or shine.
