Press Release: January Show: “New Beginnings”
Skylands Gallery & Studio will be holding its January Show, entitled, New Beginnings on Saturday, January 10th, 2015 from 6pm - 10pm.
The show will feature roughly 100 original works of art by Skylands Gallery member artists: Carol Chave, Rima Hamade, Lisa Lopez, John Maione Jr, Janet O’Neil, Diane Suter and Bruce Young. We are excited to welcome the community to view these works of fine art and enjoy an evening of complimentary food, beverages and live music. The live music will be by Sussex County musician, Peter Lister and members of the Binghamton, NY based band, Milkweed. The band describes their music as pure Americana. Their sound has a definite Bluegrass feel to it. You can learn more about the band and listen to some of their tunes at their website: www.milkweedtheband.com
All artists are locals from the Skylands Region of NJ. Many will have not only originals for sale but hand-signed prints ranging in price from $25 - $50.
The artists of Skylands Gallery are also very happy to welcome to the show, Paula N. Ashfield from Under My Wing Avian Refuge located in Wantage, NJ. The refuge is a “no-kill” exotic bird sanctuary founded in 2007. Four Skylands Gallery artists, Lisa Lopez, John Maione Jr, Janet O’Neil and Diane Suter have created original works to benefit Under My Wing. These works depict birds Under My Wing is caring for or has cared for in the past. The artists are contributing a hand-signed print of each original to Under My Wing for their upcoming 2015 fundraiser. In addition, the originals are for sale in the gallery through the month of January, with 50% of the sale price going towards Under My Wing. If you would like to find out more about Under My Wing, please visit their website: www.undermywing.org.
We are looking forward to another great turnout for this show and spending an enjoyable evening with the community centered around arts from the NJ Skylands and helping out a local charitable organization, Under My Wing.
