If you are looking for something “très chic” to do on a cold winter’s eve, then please join me and my fellow East Quogue artists at the opening reception of the East End Arts annual members’ art show titled “The Muse.”Neva Setlow and Jonathan Pearlman are each exhibiting one of their amazing sculptures. Lance Corey’s painting, “Ms. Allure,” is inspired by the tragedy of September 11th while Peter Beston’s painting, “I Can’t See It Now,” was inspired by the discovery of a set of old family photographs. “Be Still My Heart” is my stained glass panel dedicated to Pablo, my blue-fronted Amazon parrot who was my muse for 34 years.
This special event takes place this Friday, January 24, from 5 to 7 p.m., at the art gallery located at 133 East Main Street in Riverhead.
And, speaking of East End Arts, registration is now open for winter and spring classes in both music and art. There are classes for all ages and levels. For information and schedules, visit www.eastendarts.org/school/classes.html, call (631) 369-2171 or send an email to email@example.com.
