55 years of painting! We are all blessed to know the artist in you and all that you represent. Your paintings tell of your rich heritage, seeing the beauty and hearing the melodies in every stroke of your brush.

Elisha, that breaks my heart. There are so few dedicated artists and you are surely one of them. Know that your efforts are valued and that we will miss your presence in our lives. I hope you will keep in touch nonetheless. Corinne

Dear Elisha, Happy Holidays to you, and thank you for founding and nurturing this wonderful group of creatives! I have been rather preoccupied with life outside of the studio the last couple of years, as well as moving into and making a new studio this summer, besides maintaining my old one in another state.  Now I am looking forward to participating more fully and enjoy our community. Deeply grateful, Mimi Chen Ting

Good morning Elisha:It’s amazing what you’ve developed, through your efforts & talents in art, especially in a town as expansive as Miami. Quite a coupe’ to have the Mayor/city’s endorsement too! Also, I listened to “Far Away,” over the weekend.  Heartfelt & amazing on both regards. You’re an inspiration to us all, Elisha, to follow your dreams, passions, and keep believing, all to keep achieving! Thank you (as always) for sharing with me! Amy

April 12, 2013
Hello Elisha,I took some time to look at your website and your art.  It’s beautiful!  I love it!  Modern in style yet very warm.  You’re a man of many talents. Best regards, Mary

March 7, 2013
Dear Elisha, I´m so proud of you! You made it happen in Miami. You are one of the greatest people I have ever known  that has goals and make them happen, to be in your life and in so many other lives. CONGRATULATIONS. YOU ARE OUR LEADER! Love Malena.”

March 7, 2013
Elisha, That is great!  So glad you are getting the much deserved recognition.  The fact that they are willing to make such a long term commitment is fantastic.  Too bad Milwaukee never understood the importance that these types of shows lend the city as being an arts community. Shelley

September 10, 2012
Elisha, you are truly something special. You have promoted the international Biennale Artists to such as extent that we are each benefiting extraordinarily and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I hope all the artists never forget what you are doing for us. Warmly always, Gazala

July 18, 2012
Congratulations Elisha for a great job. I want to thank you for all you have done to open the world to artists, and all the recognition of artists is due to all the time you share with all of us. Love you always, Malena Peon.

July 4, 2012
Dear Elisha, You are a gifted and sensitive man — rare indeed!  Thanks for letting me into your creative world. It’s wonderful . . .  You are so very talented in 3-D ways. So many dimensions of emotion, artistic gifts, expression and truth-seeking. Not to mention your courage. . .  you listened to that spirit within you rather than the noisy voices that always try to drown artists out.  I LUV IT!  Your paintings are incredible! Your song “My Dream” is so beautiful . . . I would love to hear the melody that goes with it. You inspire me greatly!  Thanks, my friend!Best wishes, Linda

June 21, 2012
Elisha, I´m very happy for you because I know you are the person that makes everything happen, It´s amazing how much you achieved and your new relations with the city of Miami. You have given all of us the opportunity to show our art all over the world. All the good things that happened with my art are thanks to you. Nancy

May 27, 2012
Elisha, Congratulations on such a big event in Miami! Arranging an exhibition with 56 artists from the group that YOU have created is simply admirable! I wish you good luck, and I’m sure it is going to be an amazing exhibition. Guy

May 26, 2012
Dear Elisha. Your message is really kind and I am so grateful for your courtesy and your appreciation: you are a good and gentle person, so rare in this world. I have a poor knowledge of the good manners, as I have been grown up in a difficult family, and I have a bad story at my back. That is why I am so involved in social and political actions. But your words are like a cup of clean, pure fresh water in the desert for me. Shalom, Francis (Mr.)

January 7, 2011
Elisha, You have a very good sense of things and you are so trustworthy. Mario

April 16, 2011
Elisha, Your paintings are beautiful, very, very beautiful. They are delicate and sensitive and poetic. BRAVO! Best Regards, Beatrice

October 1, 2010
Dear Elisha,You are always a good writer and considerate.  I would like to thank you again for your efforts, and agree with your scope of expectations, and great to meet up.  I am participating in other shows too, but unsure if I’ll make those receptions.  Cost, cost, cost as we know. But of course hope to, even if just myself-which is a bit easier of course. None the less, loved making it to New York, and my kids had a great time.  I will go through pictures we took and look for a decent one or two to send when I get a chance.Thank you, Shawn Man

October 1, 2010
Dear Elisha,The show in New York went too quickly!!! What a great occasion! They did such a beautiful job really! Just wish it could have been up longer. And of course you did so much promotion for us all! We look forward to seeing you in Miami!Irene Neal

September 13, 2010
Dear Elisha,I can’t remember if I told you how impressive the NY Arts magazine is…. It’s wonderful!  Also, we have been so fortunate to have you speaking up for and looking after us.  Again, my sincere gratitude for all you have done and continue to do for all the US Biennale artists.Sincerely, Bronwyn

September 10, 2010
Dearest Elisha, Although I won’t be able to attend the NY Arts exhibit, I want to extend my GREATEST wishes for you and the others that are participating!! Elisha, you have worked so VERY hard to organize this event.  Even though I wasn’t able to participate, I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciated all you have done.  Not only for this exhibit, but for our group as a WHOLE!! I admire your tenacity, drive, the open and willingness to help others, but most of all YOU, both as a gentleman and an artist. Just wanted to extend my best wishes to you in NY, and hope for all the success in the world for you (and the others, as well). Sincerely your friend, Mandy Petrash (Amanda)

August 23, 2010
Dear Elisha, Thank you so much for your supportive information and comments to the U.S. Biennale artists.  I appreciate all you do for us, and I am so happy that you are pleased with the New York Arts magazine article about the Broadway Gallery show. I will be participating in the November exhibition, and hope to finalize my arrangements with flights and hotels by the end of the month. I just returned from a Russian Art Cruise with Fine Art Connoisseur magazine, which was awesome, life-changing in some respects.  Now I am so inspired to pursue my art and I am glad to have a comrade in you.  Linda Perry Ledet

August 19, 2010
Elisha,Your work in the catalogue looks super. I now know how to make my paintings look brighter. For the next catalog! Oh well. It is a grand job they have done. Wonderful to be a part of it all as you said. I think often of your marvelous poetry. Passion, Great. It’s moments of delicious spontaneity that give life a feel of the magnificence endless possibilities. We but touch the rim of them most times.Irene

August 19, 2010
Hello Elisha,That is a very kind E-Mail you sent all of us below and it is our turn to thank you for all your efforts for the exhibition at the Broadway Gallery.  As time draws closer, I am very much looking forward to this event. I hope you will  keep me on distribution and I hope things will fall in place so that I might hopefully be able to participate in a future edition of these wonderful art shows. Thank you again and see you soon in New York!Best regards, Gulay    

August 19, 2010
Dear Elisha,Thank you for your update and reminders about times to send art work etc…and to express our appreciation to Abraham Lubelski and to Suzie Walshe for a beautiful presentation of our work to the world…Thank you for being a catalyst in the success of this venture…you are to be commended.Appreciatively, Irene

August 19, 2010
Dear Elisha, Thank you so much for all the updates and info.  I am so excited to be a part of all these fabulous exhibits with all my fellow artists!  Again, thank you for all your hard work and communications. Peace, Emilia García

July 25, 2010
Dear Elisha,I really appreciate all the trouble you have, finding hotels, inviting us to the other biennale art shows and getting in touch with all the artists. I am interested in keeping in touch for future shows I think you are a great person and so nice in helping other artists being in touch and connected with the art shows. Sincerely yours, Sandra Nikolai

July 6, 2010
Hi Elisha,You are doing a wonderful, honest and voluntary job that all of us should be proud of you. Best regards, Alicia

July 1, 2010
You are one amazing person Elisha! I can’t believe that you got us into a gallery during Art Basel. Of course I want to participate.Warm Regards always, Gazala

June 28, 2010
Dear Elisha,When somebody is doing an enormous work as you have been doing for all the artists that participated in a Florence Biennale, there is always somebody that for no reason or for an unknown reason, have to criticize the work of others and try to discredit them.  You are doing something so valuable for all of us, with no selfish, giving us the opportunity to exhibit our art work in Galleries and Biennales. Don’t be discouraged in your efforts, the people that have had the opportunity to know you, have no doubt of your integrity and your good motivation to help this group of artists.  I am very glad that there are many of us supporting your efforts and believing in you. I want as well to thank Eduardo Chirinos and Alicia Torres for giving us this marvelous opportunity.  And, for you Elisha, thank you for all the effort that it takes to promote us among Galleries.With my best regards, Flavia D’Ascoli

June 28, 2010
Dear Elisha:It has been very kind of you helping other artists, especially the foreigner ones, inviting us for the shows, sending the Hotel addresses, etc, etc. Thanks a lot!! I just read your email about the show in Miami, and it sounds interesting, (the Nina Torres show). I have to re-read it and see if it would be possible for me to register for the exhibit. Thanks again for helping and inviting us for the shows.My best regards, Sandra Nikolai Gutierrez

June 27, 2010
I am truly grateful for the efforts that you have undertaken on our behalf Elisha and bewildered by the reaction of one person. As everyone keeps pointing out, if you don’t want to participate then simply delete the emails. Any participation in something like the Biennale causes one to be put on the receiving end of all kinds of solicitations, most of which I also just delete. They don’t insult me and I’m further grateful for Elisha’s efforts because I know from whence they come and that I can trust that they are ‘up front’ and sincere. Great letter, Ms. Berg. Please keep me on your list, Elisha!Sincerely, Ann Drosendahl

June 27, 2010
Dear Elisha,I thank you again for your tireless efforts to promote the international artists biennale shows. I would continue to be interested for the upcoming events. You can count on me to be involved.Best Regards, Alicia

June 26, 2010
Thank you Elisha, Eduardo , Alicia and everyone who help us divulgate our art.Best regards, Christine Drummond

June 26, 2010
Dear Elisha, Thanks so much for your help. I heard from Suzie in record time and am making final plans for the November exhibit.  You are true blue!!! Linda

June 25, 2010
Dear Elisha, Thank you so much for helping me to exhibit my art. I am very excited with all the information you sent me about the art projects. It is an honor for me to participate next to you and other very good artists. Thanks again.Cecilia Del Toro

June 25, 2010
Thank you Elisha. We all need to take you to dinner in Miami to thank you for all the work you are doing.Marah

June 21, 2010
Dear Elisha!Thank you for your beautiful poem. I had no idea that you had such powerful way with words, as you do with images. This is a rare and unique quality in an artist. Often, those with a gift for visual arts such as yours are not always as eloquent with words. Some words have the power to transport you to a place with such force and power that it’s almost a physical reaction. Looking at your works, (those painted in Jerusalem), as a viewer you get a physical reaction. You convey inventive points of view that form a synthesis between abstract and figurative elements. It’s a narrative with light, but somehow utilizes abstracted and symbolic compositions that reveal a life within the sometimes clinical world of contemporary painting. Elisha, this is a new breed that invites viewers to a world full of vibrant colors and mysterious visages. Each of your works impact the viewers’ senses, awaken our emotional memory, and empower us to see the universe and beyond. A painting should not end on the canvas, and this is what your work teaches us! Seeing your poetry makes me understand your paintings even more.Susanne

June 17, 2010
Dear Elisha,It is a pleasure for me to hear from you. I appreciate your e mails so much, always bringing good news to all of us. To me it’s a true gift of the universe to know a friendly and positive person as you. I thank you for your friendship.Cecilia

June 16, 2010

March 1, 2010
Dear Elisha,Thank you for your answer and help for the Biennale Art Show at the Broadway Gallery. The three Yucatecans are very enthusiastic in going to the show. I can imagine how hard it is dealing with all the artists interested in it.Thanks again, Sandra Nikolai Gutierrez

January 28, 2010
