In conversation with Luke Dougherty, James Litaker will take us on a tour of his exhibition, “James Litaker’s Stories.” Information about the exhibition here. Free and open to the public. Refreshments will be available.


Born and raised in Harlem, NY, James Litaker studied art at the School of Visual Arts, as a scholarship member of the Salmagundi club, and in Amsterdam, where he developed an enduring interest in the prints and paintings of the Dutch Masters. Returning to New York City, he brought his Renaissance eye to the sights and sounds of Harlem and Greenwich village, which became the subjects of four decades of drawings and paintings from daily life. For the last twenty years, Litaker has lived and worked in Delaware County.

Luke Dougherty has taught drawing at the State University of Oneonta in NY for the last 11 years. He is a practicing artist and illustrator living and working in Delaware County since 2004.
