The Winter cold does not stop the art events from happening, they’re just all indoors, at least in NJ…but that’s fine with me! There’s always good food, nice wine, new people, old friends and the best part, great artwork! This was exactly the case for the huge group exhibit at the Straube Center in Pennington, NJ last week. I’m one of 8 local artists in this show and have 21 pieces on exhibit! I was excited to sell one on opening night!!
I have to say that all of the artwork was really well done and the variety of work was great to see….paintings, photographs, mixed media, sculpture. The art adorned the large hallway spaces (set up like professional gallery walls) & conference rooms in 2 buildings in the center. Despite the opening reception being held during rush hour on a Friday night (such is often the case with corporate shows), we had a nice turnout of artists, collectors, friends and family. We actually stayed past the closing time! It was great meeting new art enthusiasts and local artists. Group shows are such an important part of socializing and networking for any creative person!
My thanks to everyone at the center who helped organize the show and to everyone who came to view it! I’ve posted a few photos of my “art walls” at the show. It’ll be up until 2/26/10 so if you’re in the Pennington, NJ area, go take a look!
