When it rains it pours and ArtC is looking forward to getting drenched this month.
First, Photo SJ 2013 kicks off this Wednesday, April 3rd. Two days of photography presentations, workshops and portfolio reviews by some of the area’s best photographers and one who is international. Still time to sign up for a workshop or portfolio review. Keynote presentations by Michel Tcherevkoff on Wednesday and David Todd McCarty on Thursday are free and open to the public. All the details can be found at Photo SJ 2013.
This Friday, April 5th, we will hang a new exhibit in The ArtC Gallery at Shore Medical Center. It’s located on the second floor of their new Surgical Pavilion in Somers Point and is easily accessible by the public. The William Ris Gallery from Stone Harbor and Ocean City’s Accent Gallery will be providing the artwork this time. Opening reception is scheduled for May 10th.
On April 17th ArtC will bring its proposal to rebrand the South Jersey Cultural Alliance before their board. We are anxious to start on this project and if everything goes as planned we will be doing so soon.
On April 22nd we will be presenting to the board of the Atlantic City Alliance. It’s a very exciting project but it’s still too soon to reveal details. We will be joined by Mike Cagno, director of the Noyes Museum of Art and several very talented artists. Wish us luck on this one.
The Art Spirit, ArtC’s documentary on Pat Witt and the Barn Studio of Art in Millville will have an encore showing at the Noyes Museum of Art, 6:30 pm on April 25th.
We are also working on details for a night of art at AtlantiCare’s Gala in May. ArtC proposed that three of the area’s galleries display artwork by local and regional artists and AtlantiCare agreed to it. The art will be for sale and part of the proceeds will go to the AtlantiCare Foundation which of course runs the Healing Arts program. Win/win.
And we should have a new video on our website in a few days. It’s about the Singer Songwriter Cape May event that took place last weekend. Wild Rhino owner and ArtC’s video producer Frank Weiss was asked to create the piece by Exit Zero’s Jack Wright. Susan Allen and I joined them to help film it. The first rough draft by Frank looks really good.
So to those who have told us over the years that we are all wet, we certainly hope you are right.
Thanks for listening.
