Winter Arts Festival Begins This Weekend

Used the afternoon to take care of a bunch of errands, one of which was dropping by the Studio building to get an update on this weekend's Winter Arts Festival.  They began the installation of the first floor art, which includes the contributions from me and Molly.  My section is shown above, a nice long wall in the wide part of the hall, by the foot of the central stairway.  They will adjust the heights of individual works by the weekend, plus the title cards haven't been put up yet, but this gives the idea of what to expect.  Across the hall from mine is where Molly's work has been installed.  She has added some color since we saw them one week ago, as she planned.

The weather forecasters seem to have given up, telling us there is a possibility of light snow tonight, tomorrow, Friday, and Saturday, so how events in Ocean Grove will play out is yet to be seen.   But if all goes well, the opening reception will be Saturday, February 21st beginning at 7:00 pm, with entertainment from the PJ Rasmussen Trio starting at 8:00 pm.  The next day starting at 3:00 pm, the Jersey Shore Writers are presenting Open Mic Poetry.  Both days are free and open to the public.  Then two more events the following weekend- a theatrical sneak preview of the next theater production, Stephen Sondheim's Assassins at 7:00 pm ($35) on Saturday the 28th, and a Brunch and Open Studio on Sunday March 1st at noon another free event that includes a bunch of performances of music, dance, etc.  Details can be found at  The building is located at the corner of Main and Main, just outside the big brick gate of Ocean Grove.
