MAY 17th GALLERY ART WALK IN DOWNTOWN NEW ROCHELLE
New Rochelle’s downtown galleries are hosting a Downtown Gallery Art Walk on Saturday, May 17th from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Ralph DiBart, Executive Director of the BID stated: “Spring is finally here and what better way to celebrate than a stroll downtown viewing public art, visiting art galleries and dining at one of our fine Dine Downtown restaurants. Everything is within walking distance of each other. Park your car and conveniently enjoy downtown, the arts and great food.”
The galleries open to the public for the May 17th event are:
In addition to the above galleries, the downtown is also home to the Lumen Winter Gallery (between shows for this gallery walk), and looks forward to the opening of “MODHArts Gallery of Contemporary Realism” this summer.
The galleries are featuring a wide range of art and artists.
Reverol and Co. will feature RAFAEL JAEN whose prolific work has taken the art scene of his native Venezuela by storm. The Mahlstedt Gallery will present “SHADOW ODYSSEY, a group exhibition of over ten contemporary artists working in a variety of styles and using varied medium including painting, drawing, manipulated digital photography and sculpture.
Recologie Gallery’s show NO BOUNDARIES features repurposed work using recycled materials by Ruth Bauer Neustadter in keeping with the Gallery’s eco-friendly philosophy. They will also host a hands-on workshop JUNK…IT, allowing the public to create their own “No Boundaries” art. Bring your “junk” and Recologie will provide the inspiration! Gallery New Roc will feature new works by artists in resident studios: MODHArts Studio, SUSADesigns, KyuNamHan Studio, and Zasparilla.
Backstreet Gallery is hosting a preview exhibit of some of the fifteen, five foot fiber glass fleur de lis sculptures, each decorated by a different artist that will appear later this Spring as a “PARADE OF FLEUR DE LIS” on sidewalks in the Downtown. They will join a number of other public arts installations in downtown ranging from STEAL AWAY, a jazz mural by Jeff Schlanger to three murals by internationally known artist Dale Zheutlin.
