  2. Leonia Artists Gallery Exhibit: “EXIT 70A”, Edward Williams Hall Gallery at FDU

    May 5, 2018, 8:30 AM - 8:30 PM

    The show’s title, “Do Not Enter”, is intended to be a humorous play-on-words of the borough of Leonia's recent enactment of new traffic rules. Leonia, once the site of a renowned, thriving art colony, continues to attract artists in a range of medium. The borough’s lengthy list of prominent visual artists included Charles Chapman and painter and etcher Grant Reynard. The Leonia artists presenting their work in this show perpetuate that rich heritage. This unique exhibition features emerging artists exploring different mediums using diverse styles in abstracts in oil, watercolor, acrylic, and photography. Artists' works presented in the show include Elizabeth DeMarco, Pam Fenwick, Katharina Castiblanco Grammer, Nanda van Ginkel, Marsha Heller, Paul Leibow, James Leynse, Ronald Pancrazi, Vince Priblo and Steve Swank. An opening reception will be held on Sunday, April 22 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Art enthusiasts are invited to come and meet the artists and enjoy light refreshments.
