RIOC Announces 2018 Motorgate Gallery Opening, March 28th

Yesterday, RIOC announced the 2018 opening of new art for the Roosevelt Island Visual Art Association's unique Motorgate Gallery. Everyone's invited to see this year's new works. Enjoy live jazz and refreshments along with RIOC and the collaborating artists on March 28th, from 6:30 to 8:30

Roosevelt Island is uniquely art oriented, driven largely by pioneering leaders who've pursued an "island of art" goal for more than 15 years, supported generously by RIOC, which provides space and funds the artwork as well as the opening celebration.

The paintings to be unveiled were selected from among murals created during September's Fall for Arts festival. RIOC hosts Fall for Arts every year, supplying all the materials for artists who turn the Rivercross Lawn and parts of Southpoint Park into outdoor studios.

2017's theme was "Relentless Rhythm: City in Motion."

The festival coincided with Kite Flight for Peace at FDR Four Freedoms Park and, surprisingly, a soft opening for Bubble Cool that had customers lining up along Main Street to sample Roosevelt Island's newest taste treat.

Making the Fall for Arts harvest complete is what the 2018 Motorgate Opening is all about as new works again add vibrant cheer to the otherwise dull and dreary poured concrete of the parking garage.
