Last Chance, Vernissage 16 at Gallery RIVAA

One of the surest signs of spring is RIVAA's annual spring season opening show at their gallery at 527 Main Street. This year, it's set for Saturday March 4th from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.

The collective of Roosevelt Island-based artists that make up RIVAA grows each year, accenting established talent with fresh contributions. It's always fun to see what they are up to as spring breaks free from winter chills. Missed the opening? Join us for a video walk through by clicking here.

Everyone is welcome to drop by, free of any charge, and appreciate the variety of artist techniques and styles. Enjoy a soft drink or a little wine with cheese, crackers and other munchies.

I most enjoy the abstract styles of Valeriu Boborelu and Ioan Popoiu but also the surprises that appear from the the always innovative Esther Piaskowski and Toshiko Kitano Groner.

The popular pastels of Georgette Sinclair will, as always, stop visitors in their tracks as do Connie Tanner's lively sculptures.

In adding these notes, I feel a little guilty that I can't mention everyone, but look at the lineup above. You will be certain to see something you love that will stick with you throughout the coming year.
