January Opening Show: New Beginnings 1/10/15 (archived 1/13/15)
Join us for the evening at our January group show, New Beginnings. We will have over 100 original works of art on display, all by local artists. Complimentary food, beverages and live music! You can RSVP or invite friends from our event posting on Facebook.
Several of the artists have created new work for the January Show. They will be unveiled publicly for the first time at this show! No sneak preview, but we can tell you they are quite striking!
It is confirmed! We will have live music by Sussex County musician Peter Lister and members of the Binghamton, NY band, Milkweed. According to their website, "We fall under the label Americana by default, just because we like it all." Their sound is excellent and has a Bluegrass feel to it. We are very excited to have them performing in our gallery and am sure you will enjoy their good-old American sound! You can check them out and listen to some of their tunes at: http://milkweedtheband.com/
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 these originals 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.
