Here is our look at the art party curated by Marthalicia Matarrita in The Bronx called the Basement Art Sessions.

Evolving last year after planning a birthday party planned for her brother and friend , Marthalicia invited a DJ, and applied canvases on wooden doors she collected over the years. After a successful night and realizing the effect the party with those in attendance, Marthalicia borrowed the term “session” from her friend Laurie Markiewicz to begin what is now called the Basement Art Sessions.

I saw that a lot of people liked getting together. It wasn’t just me, it was a bunch of other artists that needed it. – Marthalicia Matarrita

The next session is planned for March 21, 2015. If you would like to attend, RSVP at
