FoHi Artist Fronts for Gossip Girl

I’m grabbing this off of Gawker, on the quick—

Some of the paintings in Rufus Humphreys’ “Williamsburg” art gallery on “Gossip Girl” are by a 60-year-old artist from Forest Hills, Queens named Rita Wilmers. The one featured on tonight’s show “marks the end of one part of [Wilmers’] life—my 32 years on Staten Island—and the beginning of a new life in Forest Hills and a new [more abstract] art style. It’s a celebration of having lived on Staten Island, saying goodbye, and moving on.”

Gawker got it off of the New York Post.

Queens Council on the Arts has already embraced Rita Wilmers, and so should the rest of us. Congratulations Rita!
