An Open Call To White Mothers June 09 2020, 0 Comments

 My world view has been turned on its’ head and I am trying to find my footing. In the presence of my young adult children I feel like every word I say and every step I take is wrong and I’m ok with that because I am learning. I am grateful for their strong and informed stance. It allows me to stumble.

No one is free and safe until we all are.

Hold my hand June 08 2020, 0 Comments

Love must not become irrelevant.  Unrealistic as it may sound love is the answer...and the only way to feel love is to get still, and go within any way you can. 

This is the best day May 02 2020, 1 Comment

As all my anger and hatred dissolves

Laughter shines from a deep well

The vibration of all more clearly felt


Gifts of the wind and stars

Find themselves in my breath and eyes

What felt to be only struggle

Proved rich along the way


Now everything is priceless

And little goes unnoticed

Freed from illusion

Solid walls no longer exist

The Creative Gene: A Family Affair May 19 2016, 0 Comments

For six decades Elizabeth Yanish Shwayder has made her mark as an internationally collected and highly awarded sculptor, lecturer, and leader in the arts community,
but her true sense of purpose as an influential humanitarian includes organizing the "New York Cares " Coat Drive, (covered in TIME magazine Dec. 1993) as well as a Book drive for troops in the gulf, and the organizer of Coats for Colorado, to name just a few. Both her daughters, Marilyn Ginsburg (a human rights lawyer) and Mindy Yanish (a gallery owner and minister) as well as her granddaughter Jessica Ginsburg (an environmental lawyer) all share the need to make a difference and to make art. Their passion to create arises from the depths of the family soul. For the first time, they are coming together for a multi- generation art show. This rare exhibition and the opportunity to meet the family opens on Saturday June 4 with an artist's reception from 3 to 6 pm. at Offerings Gallery at 59 Katonah avenue, Katonah, NY . Exhibition runs through July 17.
