The Wednesday Group of plein air painters opened their spring show "Town and Country" at Ashawagh Hall on Saturday night. The show included local landscapes and New York City scenes. Participating artists included Anna Franklin, Peter Gumple, Jean Mahoney, Deb Palmer, Alyce Peifer, Gene Samuelson, Joyce Silver, Christine Chew Smith, Frank Sofo, and Pam Vossen. Ms. Peifer served as curator.
Halsey Mckay Gallery had a hip and lively vibe on Saturday when it opened its doors to "No Ground, but Say Ground," a group show organized by Joe Fyfe.
The Brooklyn-based artist was inspired by Samuel Beckett's "Worstword Ho" in his role as curator, chosing works that suggest "no where to locate oneself, no where to stand."
