Featuring artist Michael Birawer, Annie wig designer Tom Watson, Playwright Eve Ensler and a war photography exhibition.
In collaboration with the Major Market Group Arts Initiative, WSKG presents Artist Café, a new weekly half-hour arts program hosted by Jami Viengkham. Each week, Artist Café stories will showcase an expansive variety of national and local artists including film, visual and performing arts, theater, photography, literature, painting, sculpture, poetry and more to bring viewers a unique and geographically diverse arts experience. Join Artist Café to learn more about each artist's craft and how the arts contribute to our community.
Jami L Vingkham is a part time college professor, part time TV host, part time restaurant server, and a full-time lover of the arts. She was discovered—yes, cliché but true—by WSKG’s executive director of television working at a Downtown Binghamton eatery. With a natural talent for TV and a passion for sharing the hard work of community artists, Jami was a perfect fit for WSKG’s Artist Café. When she’s not in front of the camera, she’s generally in front of the classroom. Jami’s work educating students on health and wellness at SUNY Broome has blossomed into the development of a broader SUNY Solutions to Fitness and Wellness program. Want to chat with Jami about the arts, fitness, or our community in general? Drop her an email at email@example.com
