Art rocks on YouTube & in NJ

This month has been crazy!  And June is building up to be the same way.   This is outdoor festival season, especially in New Jersey!  Once the weather begins to warm up everyone is itching to get outdoors, and arts & music events are the way to go offering a wide variety of entertainment from local talent!  But this doesn’t mean the gallery exhibits stop!  Quite the opposite as many towns offer ART NIGHTS OUT  where many venues all keep their doors open late, usually on a Friday or Saturday night, for people to mill around and experience creativity in many locations at once.  I enjoy being a part of these types of events and here are just a few going on right now or coming up this weekend.  Oh, and a good friend of mine continues to merge music and art and has created a YouTube art video of my work so please check it out (below)…it’s only 3 minutes so won’t take a lot of your time.  Feel free to post feedback too!

HAPPENINGS IN NEW JERSEY:

My SOLO ART SHOW at RUTHIE’S CAFE on 70 Raritan Ave. in Highland Park, NJ has been extended until mid may so if you’re in the area, strop by to view the work and have a tasty, home made meal!  Pieces are selling so see it while you can!
